Data Cleaning and Preprocessing for Beginners - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Data cleansing or data cleaning is the process of detecting and correcting (or removing) corrupt or inaccurate records from a record set, table, or database and refers to identifying incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate or irrelevant parts of the data and then replacing, modifying, or deleting the dirty or coarse data. The absolutely first thing you need to do is to import libraries for data preprocessing. There are lots of libraries available, but the most popular and important Python libraries for working on data are Numpy, Matplotlib, and Pandas. Numpy is the library used for all mathematical things. Pandas is the best tool available for importing and managing datasets.


The tale of missing values in Python – Towards Data Science

#artificialintelligence

Imagine buying a chocolate box with 60 chocolate samples where there are 15 different unique shapes of chocolates. Unfortunately, on opening the chocolate box, you find two empty segments of chocolate. Can you accurately find a way out off handling the missing chocolate segments. Should one just pretend as if the missing chocolate isn't missing.? Should one return the chocolate box to the seller? Should one go and buy two other chocolates to fill the missing portion. Or can one just predict the shape of the missing chocolate based on previous experience of arrangement and shapes of chocolate in the box and then buy a chocolate of such predicted shape.


Data Cleaning and Preprocessing for Beginners

When our team's project scored first in the text subtask of this year's CALL Shared Task challenge, one of the key components of our success was careful preparation and cleaning of data. Data cleaning and preparation is the most critical first step in any AI project. As evidence shows, most data scientists spend most of their time -- up to 70% -- on cleaning data. Data cleansing or data cleaning is the process of detecting and correcting (or removing) corrupt or inaccurate records from a record set, table, or database and refers to identifying incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate or irrelevant parts of the data and then replacing, modifying, or deleting the dirty or coarse data.

kNN Imputation for Missing Values in Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Datasets may have missing values, and this can cause problems for many machine learning algorithms. As such, it is good practice to identify and replace missing values for each column in your input data prior to modeling your prediction task. This is called missing data imputation, or imputing for short. A popular approach to missing data imputation is to use a model to predict the missing values. This requires a model to be created for each input variable that has missing values.


Data Cleaning and Preprocessing

#artificialintelligence

Data preprocessing involves the transformation of the raw dataset into an understandable format. Preprocessing data is a fundamental stage in data mining to improve data efficiency. The data preprocessing methods directly affect the outcomes of any analytic algorithm. Data is raw information, its the representation of both human and machine observation of the world. Dataset entirely depends on what type of problem you want to solve.
