R & Python: A Love Story

Many Data Science teams today are bilingual, leveraging both R and Python in their work. While both languages have unique strengths, teams frequently struggle to use them together.

Principal Components Analysis (PCA)

In this tutorial, I will first implement PCA with scikit-learn, then, I will discuss the step-by-step implementation with code and the complete concept behind the PCA algorithm in an easy to understand manner.

Good robotics control is hard. Plain and simple as that. Don’t let the periodic videos from Boston Dynamics fool you: pulling off untethered back-flips and parkour are very rare skills for robots. In fact, as was readily apparent at the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge, falls and failures are the standard operating mode for state-of-the-art robots in the (somewhat fake) real world.

Automating lights with Computer Vision & NodeJS

A smart Computer Vision and NodeJS based solution that turns off the lights when not in use, and saves power.
