The Future of Ubersuggest

#artificialintelligence

Do you know why I got into SEO? Not many people know this, but I grew up in middle-class America, and I wanted a better life for me and my parents. When I was 16 years old, I worked at a theme park called Knotts Berry Farm where I picked up trash, cleaned restrooms, and swept up vomit every single day. I didn't mind it because that's life and I needed the money. At 16, I realized I was too young to get a high paying job, so I did the next best thing… I started a business.


Free Data Sets for Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

I am a big fan of learning through practical application. I have found that when studying machine learning, it can be really useful to obtain some publically available data sets to apply the latest technique I have learnt to. Or you might want a really simple data set to benchmark a solution or compare different algorithms before tackling a real data set. In the following post, I am going to list the best resources I have found for obtaining completely free data sets for machine learning applications. The UCI Machine Learning Repository currently has 476 publically available data sets specifically for machine learning and data analysis.


More Free Data Sets

After posting my article A Plethora of Data Set Repositories, I received a few messages from people and companies that have also collected a lot of data, and share it with the public. Below are two such sources. Also, you can always find new data sets by searching for data sets on DSC. The data sets that I checked were available in CSC format, and rather small. They can be found here.

Also, you can always find new data sets by searching for data sets on DSC. They have a scraper robot which crawls Indiegogo projects and collects data about them. They also have a scraper robot which crawls all Kickstarter projects and collects data in JSON format. From March 2016 they run this data crawl once a month.


Free Alternatives to Excel for Data Cleaning

@machinelearnbot

Pretty much every data rookie starts with Excel. It is a wonderful program for storing, cleaning and analysing (yes, you read that correctly) your data. Strictly speaking, Excel isn't free, but really – who pays for it these days? If you buy a Windows PC or laptop it'll usually come pre-installed, and if you get a new PC at work your employer will have it pre-installed for you. If you're prepared to look the other way, there are guys who know guys who can get you a copy that fell off the back of a lorry, but I wouldn't endorse that.
