Dear Bruno,

Welcome to the 145th edition of the Sunday Briefing.

This week we have a new post in the Visualization for Science substack: “3D Surface Plot: The US population distribution”. We also have recently published Epidemic Models: the role of degree correlations on the Graphs for Science Substack, while on Medium we have a recap of the Top 10 Books we read in 2021.

Our next webinar on time series is coming up tomorrow, March 7: Advanced Time Series for Everyone but there’s still some time for you to Register so don’t miss out!

On our regularly scheduled content we have a tutorial on Building a Machine Learning Web Application Using Flask, an overview of 33 Data Visualization Techniques All Professionals Should Know and A Data-Driven Approach to Understanding How the Brain Works.

From the Ivory Tower we explore how In-degree centrality in a social network is linked to coordinated neural activity, get up to speed with Conversational Agents: Theory and Applications and learn how to compute Gradients without Backpropagation.

This weeks ‘Data Science Book’ highlight is Data Science Book is “Causality” by J. Pearl. As always you can find all the previous book recommendations on our website. In the video of the week we have a tutorial on working with Audio Data with Python.

Data shows that the best way for a newsletter to grow is by word of mouth, so if you think one of your friends or colleagues would enjoy this newsletter, just go ahead and forward this email to them. This will help us spread the word!

Semper discentes,

The D4S Team

The latest post on the Graphs for Data Science substack: Epidemic Models: the role of degree correlations is now out.You should Sign Up to make sure you never miss a post!

The latest post on the Visualization for Data Science substack: Christmas Tree Animation is now out, Don’t forget to Subscribe so you’re first in line to receive every post.

The latest post in the CoVID-19 series, ‘How to model the effects of vaccination’ takes a look at how simple modifications of the SIR model can help us better understand how vaccines work. As usual, all the code is available in GitHub: http://github.com/DataForScience/Epidemiology101

The latest post in the Causality series covers section ‘3.7 — Mediation’, a recipe to calculate the controlled directed effect. The code for each blog post in this series is hosted by a dedicated GitHub repository: https://github.com/DataForScience/Causality

This weeks Data Science Book is “Causality” by J. Pearl. Causal Inference is a lively and fast developing area in Data Science that we believe has the potential to be truly revolutionary in coming years (you can get a quick overview of the main ideas in our Causal Inference series over at Medium). Judea Pearl is one of the most prominent founding fathers of this field that he introduces masterfully in this textbook. While the approach Pearl chooses is mathematically rigorous, thanks to his rich use of toy examples, the key ideas and concepts are easily grasped and adapted to real world datasets. Causal Inference is a powerful arrow in any Data Scientist’s quiver and this is the ideal starting point if you’re interested in taking the first steps in this exciting area.
