Datathon NSI Mentors’ Guidelines – Economic Time Series Prediction

Posted 1 CommentPosted in GD2018 Mentors, Mentors

In this article the mentors give some preliminary guidelines, advice and suggestions to the participants for the case. Every mentor should write their name and chat name in the beginning of their texts, so that there are no mix-ups with the other menthors. By rules it is essential to follow CRISP-DM methodology ( The DSS […]

Using Machine Learning to explain and predict the life expectancy of different countries

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Prediction systems

The project tries to create a model based on data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) to evaluate the life expectancy for different countries in years. The data offers a timeframe from 2000 to 2015. The data originates from here: The output algorithms have been used to test if they can maintain their accuracy in predicting the life expectancy for data they haven’t been trained. Four algorithms have been used:

Linear Regression
Ridge Regression
Lasso Regression
ElasticNet Regression
Linear Regression with Polynomic features
Decision Tree Regression
Random Forest Regression

Stochastic Processes and Applications

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Probabilities

This notebook is a basic introduction into Stochastic Processes. It is meant for the general reader that is not very math savvy, like the course participants in the Math Concepts for Developers in SoftUni.
There is a basic definition. Some examples of the most popular types of processes like Random Walk, Brownian Motion or Weiner Process, Poisson Process and Markov chains have been given. Their basic characteristics and examples for some possible applications are stated. For all the examples there are simulations in Python, some are visualized.
The following packages have been used:


Part 2 Exploring market food prices.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Learn

Abstract¶We would like to see if there is any connection between the products (names) and price, as well as existing patterns. This is set a-priori. When we do the exploration further question will arise. Some of the data will be removed as it will not be used. There will be plots, groupings and hypothesis testing […]

Part 1 Exploring Food Data

Abstract¶When we first look at the file we can see that it is the biggest one of all, most of the data will not be used, we will create samples. Lets set an a priory goal to see if there is a connection between the countries and some of the ingredients that don’t have that […]

Predicting CO2 concentration in the atmosphere with RNN

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Prediction systems

Author Stefan Panev¶Abstract¶This notebook tries to predict monthly CO2 concentration in the atmosphere in ppm (particles per million). Several architectures of rnn (recurrent neural network) have been used. 3 types of networks have been displayed in 3 notebooks LSTM, GRU and stacked LSTM. The LSTM offers the closest predictions. The following packages have been used: […]
