- Digit Classification Model
- Reading and Detecting the Sudoku from an image
- Solving the Puzzle
Are you excited now? To solve sudoku via deep learning steps? Go, try now!
Prateek is a final year engineering student from the Institute of Engineering and Management, Kolkata. His favorite Sci-Fi franchise is Star Wars. Prateek has got some fan following on our blog and has articles that come under the category of ‘most-reads’. He wants his audience to know that data science is everywhere, be it our bank or our most loved topic of discussion ‘food’!
He has written articles on some of the most relevant and interesting topics like banknote authentication, web scraping a news article, data visualization exploring the human space race, and understanding the Indian Cuisine.
With each of his articles, he connects the applications to be used like Keras Sequential Model, Sentiment Analysis using NLP, different datasets used for various analyses, and so on. His style is unique, using different codes and images, he keeps his readers engaged.
One of the most technical writers, Rahul is slowly coming into the groove of writing. He believes in giving back to society. And thus, along with pursuing Post Graduate Diploma. Rahul is enthralled to share his knowledge on our platform. He has written various articles for all the levels – beginners, intermediate and advanced. So, he has a large readership on our platform.
PySpark is a tool that helps to perform cluster computing operations in Python. The distribution of dataset operations is easier to process. It is based on Apache’s Spark which is written in Scala and has its own set of operations to process Big Data efficiently.
If you would like to know more about these topics. Head on to Rahul’s profile and check it out.
Someone who is new to the data science field and is excited to learn more, then head on to Harika’s profile. Harika is a special writer for us who is focused on writing articles that will help the newbies in the industry.
She has written various articles introducing GitHub, functions in Python, working with CSV files for data science, statistics, and different types of probability distribution for data science.
The article on GitHub introduction talks about the version control system, its different types, what is the difference between Git and GitHub? How to install Git? And, get to know Git operations and commands.
A beginner guide for statistics discusses the basic difference between parameters and statistics. What are statistics and their types? It gives various details on central limit theorem, probability distributions, hypothesis testing, and graphical representations.
Kaustubh is a Python Developer with an interest in Data Analytics and wants to become a data engineer in the upcoming years. He has been associated with us for more than a year now and is now a regular contributor to the ‘Blogathon’.

One of my favorite articles is on Geometric Intuition of Logistic Regression. It assumes that the logistic regression is trying to find a line or plane that linearly separates the class labels. Basis this assumption, we draw our plane and data points. Does this article then talk about how outliers will impact the model? Then modify optimal function using Squashing.
Another fascinating article, Artificial Neural Network Using Breast Cancer Dataset where a deep learning technique is used to find the accuracy. Deep Learning is the type of machine learning which is just like the human brain. It uses a multi-layered structure of algorithms called neural networks. When algorithms attempt to copy the data where humans would be analyzing data with a given logical structure. This is known as a deep neural network.
From the guest authors of 2021, our last favorite is Sion Chakrabarti. He is zealous about writing blogs on the most trending topics.

The article discusses cryptocurrency price prediction using ARIMA Model. I am not sure if all of you are aware of what cryptocurrency actually is. So, just for those who aren’t aware, let me tell you.
Cryptocurrencies are digital tokens that could replace traditional currency in the future. These are just like our physical notes and coins which are available right now. They have become so popular in a short span because anyone can access them, easily. You could trade them via different available apps.
How the prices can be predicted basis today’s price. What will be the highest and lowest price on a trading day? And, what is the last price of the coin before the trading day ends?
