Pandas is a fast, powerful, flexible and open source data analysis and manipulation tool.

A Mega thread 🧵covering 10 amazing Pandas hacks and how to efficiently use it(with Code Implementation)👇🏻
#Python #DataScientist #Programming #MachineLearning #100DaysofCode #DataScience
1/ Indexing data frames
Indexing means to selecting all/particular rows and columns of data from a DataFrame. In pandas it can be done using two constructs —
.loc() : location based
It has methods like scalar label, list of labels, slice object etc
.iloc() : Interger based
2/ Slicing data frames
In order to slice by labels you can use loc() attribute of the DataFrame.

Implementation —

In the past two years, there has been a deluge of papers published in the AI in Dermatology space. In our @JAMADerm paper with @Dr_Vron and @james_y_zou, we audited the transparency of the datasets and models used. #AI #DermTwitter #MedTwitter…
This work was inspired by @timnitGebru's famous paper "Datasheets for Datasets", which discusses the importance of documenting datasets with information around how they were created, potential biases, and recommended use cases.
This is our motivation: "To be successful, AI algorithms need to be trained and tested on data that represent clinical scenarios encountered in real-world settings. Therefore, a clear understanding of data set characteristics is critical."

1/5 🚨 Today is European day against #Islamophobia!

Many Muslims are subject to discrimination, oppression & abuse because of anti-terrorist & surveillance policies in Europe, disproportionately targeting them as a threat to security.
2/5 ❌ The EU's 2020 Counter-Terrorism Agenda uses a flawed narrative that more surveillance is needed to guarantee security. This will only increase the over-policing of Muslims through data-sharing & biometric mass surveillance.
3/5 ➡️Read @ENAREurope's report about the impact of counter-terrorism law and policy on racialised groups in Europe:…

📣 Instead, the EU should emphasise and detail measures to support & promote the protection of #HumanRights, #Equality & #RuleOfLaw.

1/8 🙅‍♀️ Debiasing AI is not a silver bullet! 🙅🏾‍♂️

EDRi's latest report by @AggieBalayn & @sedyst from @tudelft shows that EU policymakers must STOP framing AI harms as technical flaws in the design of the AI systems, which can be fixed by using tech or "debiasing" solutions. "Beyond Debiasing. Regulating AI and its inequalities&q
2/8 The report explains why AI inequalities are a much more complicated problem than just a system design issue.

🔥To make a real difference to the experience of marginalised groups, lawmakers need to view AI in the wider context of structural discrimination, inequality & power.
3/8 ❌ Failing to recognise the complexity of #AI’s impact on the broader political economy, risks giving even more power & control to #BigTech.

10 Amazing Advanced Python Constructs that you can use to write efficient and clean Code

1/ DefaultDict
In python, a dictionary is a container that holds key-value pairs. Keys must be unique, immutable objects. If you try to access or modify keys that don’t exist in the dictionary, it raise a KeyError & break up your code execution ( continued..)
2/ (Continued..)To tackle this issue,Python defaultdict type, a dictionary-like class is used.If you try to access or modify a missing key,then defaultdict will automatically create the key & generate a default value for it

💛 Machine Learning from Scratch for beginners !!

A Thread 🧵 👇
#100DaysOfCode #Ml #MachineLearning #CodeNewBie #AI
🔹What is Machine Learning ?

Machine Learning is a growing technology which enables computer to learn automatically from past data . It uses various algorithms for building mathematical models and making predictions using historical data or information . Image
🔹 What is a model in ML ?

A machine learning model is a file that has been trained to recognize certain types of patterns. You train a model over a set of data, providing it an algorithm that it can use to reason over and learn from those data.

🧵 Global catastrophic and existential risks: the weightiest complex phenomena?

"Our job is to think about how humanity can have a happy ending...about how GOOD it can be."

- @anderssandberg of @FHIOxford speaking at SFI today:

#AIEthics #Biosecurity
"The idea that humanity actually *could* go extinct required a lot of ideas to come together. First you needed to know that species go extinct. This wasn't clear until [the discovery of fossil Mastodons]."
- @anderssandberg of @FHIOxford at SFI today:

"It's not just that the end of the world could be caused by a bad political decision. In principle, the *right* political decision or technology could *avert* these risks. In the 19th C, it was a considered merely a matter of natural causes."

While Britain’s exit from the EU was meant to help the government ratchet back the flow of workers from abroad, especially low-skilled ones – business groups are missing the staff...…
"The Recruitment & Employment Confederation urged the U.K. to loosen immigration rules, noting headhunters are finding it difficult to find skilled staff. That echoed a call made by London Mayor Sadiq Khan as well as trucking and hospitality companies in recent weeks."
"Economic Secretary John Glen said the government is looking for ways to make it easier for businesses to move internal staff to the U.K., but those rules are focused on “access to talent” instead of blue-collar workers like truck drivers."

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

I'm pleased to share our newest article ( in @JournalASEcho led by @BIDPlymouth lead sonographer @FostelloS who spearheaded a weekly #EchoFirst #QI sonographer performance feedback program. @ASE360 @GWhalleyPhD @MerriBremer @BonitaEcho @IACaccred @TheSDMS
1/ Increasing imaging volume has put a unique strain on sonographers who are asked to acquire more complex studies and perform detailed analysis in the same or less time. This may contribute to misdiagnosis or errors in data entry that may prolong time needed to analyze studies.
2/ We evaluated a system of weekly sonographer performance feedback on rates of errors. Physicians were mandated to evaluate sonographer performance on 26 technical errors and 17 scan omissions, 2018-2020 using the customizable @EncaptureMD #EchoFirst reporting software.

[big update 🥳] I'll be joining @Google @DeepMind later this year as a Research Engineer!!! 🤖😅❤

It feels surreal, I don't even know where to start. 1/
I didn't come from an "Ivy League" university. Not because I couldn't get in - but because when you're 19, from a less developed country, and you didn't have tech-savvy people around you growing up - you are not even aware that @Stanford/@MIT are a thing. 2/
I can deeply empathize with many because of that. Not all of us were lucky enough to get exposed to tech when we were 9. I "heard" about programming when I was 19! We had to compensate by working harder than everyone else. 3/

The whole issue of legacy is a problem I didn't expected with relation to digital culture.

#BTC and crypto in general illustrate this point: right now you have nothing essentially better than giving the keys to a lawyer and hope for the best.
You can imagine a lot of schemes to tame this issue but, as the lawyer solution they are rather antithetical with the very idea of cryptocurrencies: you lose pseudonymity, you need to centralize again (going to see a lawyer is the most centralizing thing I can think about)...
I suspect this issue to be much more profound.

There is no time/death in a virtual world by opposition to real world. But one major feature amor any culture is how you share it with the next generation.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl
