Another round of publishing competition

admin 🧑‍🏭
Hey Community 👋🏼

We have prepared another publishing competition for you. We partnered up with Explosion and Jina AI for our Deepnote + #spaCy 🏆 NLP in Notebooks competition 🏆.

Create & publish a notebook solving NLP tasks with #spaCy or Jina AI and win a $1000 prize! Learn more at https://deepnote.notion.site/NLP-in-Notebooks-Competition-6616e415f0a44e5c95982e7bc1cb89dd

We have 3 challenges this month
  1.  Build an unusual Food AI with a pinch of madness
  2. Analyse sentiment from GoodReads vs IMDB reviews
  3. Use Jina.ai and spaCy in a weird yet interesting way

Let us know your thoughts, and we're really happy to see the submissions. For the curious folks check out winning apps from September and from June 🎊

Amazing  Sia Seko  wrote an article about handling missing data in your data science projects. It's a great read for all the beginners we have here.

Let us know if you have any feedback here 🙂

TypeScript in Deepnote

admin 🧑‍🏭
Hey all, we have recently built a custom environment for Typescript in Deepnote with  Dan St Paul !

Most of the basic functionality is already working, some bits and pieces can be improved, but this is already a good base for anyone who wants to work in TypeScript or JavaScript in a notebook environment. With features like publishing it can be a good way to start learning, teaching or writing tech articles. 🙌


Looking forward to what you all will come up with 🙂

Top 10 notebooks

 Dan St Paul  built an EPL webscrapper in Deepnote to get some quality soccer data using pandas and Watir/Nerodia as an alternative to Selenium.
🌊 Ferdie Taruc did an awesome sentiment analysis on Frank Ocean's lyrics - he walks through everything from data gathering, clearing, to the sentiment analysis itself and statistical testing.
🐦  Abid  trained a machine learning model to predict sentiment from tweets in Arabizi Dialect. It nicely shows how you can use ML to better understand and interpret content.
👨‍🎓  Reslan Tinawi  showcased different exploratory data techniques on a data set with graduate admissions data. The goal is to predict the student's chance of admission to postgrad, given different predictor variables.
📻  Jacob Lower  and  Allan Campopiano  built a notebook utilizing YouTube API to get some channel data and visualize data about the popular YouTube channel Good Mythical Morning.
🐊  Tejas Jain  weorked with COVID-19 news data from IEEE to build a text summarization NLP model.
🤖  Andrej Chudy  built a Telegram bot to receive model training updates from Deepnote. Check out the notebook to replicate his approach and get one for yourself!
💸 birlorg created a notebook guiding us on how to retire in about 15 years.
🔮 Lukas Frei did a research piece analysing behavior of the data science community during the covid. You can read the full article here and see the supporting code in his notebook.
🕵️ Basile Roth built a social distancing detector using a Tensorflow object detection model, Python and OpenCV.

Reading group on Twitch - Understanding GANs

admin 🧑‍🏭
📽️  Hey community! We'll be live again on Twitch this Thursday
  • 6pm CET / 10am PST / 1pm EST / 10:30pm IST

This time, instead of plain coding, we want to discuss a paper from ICLR conference — GAN Dissection: Visualizing and Understanding Generative Adversarial Networks.

We'll explain what generative models are, where can we use GANs besides generating cat images, and how to tune what GAN generates. 🎨 🐈

More resources from the authors:

Looking forward! 🙌

NCL in Deepnote

admin 🧑‍🏭
Hi community, I've recently found out that ecology/biology students are learning NCAR Command Language (NCL) for visualizing some of their datasets. I hear that setting up NCL, conda, X11 and everything might be pretty complicated so I went ahead and created a NCL notebook in Deepnote.

It's not really a complete custom env, there are some problems with installing, but feel free to duplicate my project and do whatever you need. Modifications, and feedback is welcome!

Here it is: https://deepnote.com/project/bf2ffd09-c9e8-4d3b-8516-e8af1f4f62c6#%2Fnotebook.ipynb

Hi, I'm JZ 👋🏼

admin 🧑‍🏭
I engineer things at Deepnote, right now I am trying to get our community to grow 🙌🏻

We just refreshed our publishing feature, and are about to roll out public profiles — so you can showcase your projects similarly as on GitHub, yayy.

Over the weekends I'm trying to finish my PhD in Applied Deep Learning in Medical Imaging. Previously I worked for Avocode
