A Brief Profiling of Data Professions

Do you recall how many times you’ve read articles titled “This is what a Data Scientist does” or “Differences between a Data Scientist and a Data Analyst”? Such articles usually come with various colourful (and sometimes funnily shaped) Venn diagrams, arbitrarily presenting the overlap of the various data professions and highlighting the distribution of different

Generative Adversarial Networks – when AI gets creative

Since Frank Rosenblatt introduced the Perceptron in 1958, neural networks have significantly evolved and taken the world by storm. Their ability to model complex, non-linear relationships that exist in data, led to novel neural network architectures, able to outperform humans in various challenging tasks like face recognition, disease prognosis and playing video games. However, even

What’s even more interesting is that all these data are being uploaded and made publicly available on the government’s open data website. This dataset, being so rich, immediately caught my attention. I
