NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru

The eighth edition of The Fifth Elephant will be held in Bangalore on 25 and 26 July. A thousand data scientists, ML engineers, data engineers and analysts will gather at the NIMHANS Convention Centre in Bangalore to discuss:

  1. Model management, including data cleaning, instrumentation and productionizing data science.
  2. Bad data and case studies of failure in building data products.
  3. Identifying and handling fraud + data security at scale
  4. Applications of data science in agriculture, media and marketing, supply chain, geo-location, SaaS and e-commerce.
  5. Feature engineering and ML platforms.
  6. What it takes to create data-driven cultures in organizations of different scales.

Highlights:

1. Meet Peter Wang, co-founder of Anaconda Inc, and learn about why data privacy is the first step towards robust data management; the journey of building Anaconda; and Anaconda in enterprise.
2. Talk to the Fulfillment and Supply Group (FSG) team from Flipkart, and learn about their work with platform engineering where ground truths are the source of data.
3. Attend tutorials on Deep Learning with RedisAI; TransmorgifyAI, Salesforce’s open source AutoML.
4. Discuss interesting problems to solve with data science in agriculture, SaaS perspective on multi-tenancy in Machine Learning (with the Freshworks team), bias in intent classification and recommendations.
5. Meet data science, data engineering and product teams from sponsoring companies to understand how they are handling data and leveraging intelligence from data to solve interesting problems.

Why you should attend?

  1. Network with peers and practitioners from the data ecosystem
  2. Share approaches to solving expensive problems such as cleanliness of training data, model management and versioning data
  3. Demo your ideas in the demo session
  4. Join Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions to have productive discussions on focussed topics. Or, start your own Birds of Feather (BOF) session.

Data Science Best Practices for R and Python

Submitted Apr 15, 2019

How many times did you feel that you were not able to understand someone else’s code or sometimes not even your own? It’s mostly because of bad/no documentation and not following the best practices. Here I will be demonstrating some of the best practices in Data Science, for R and Python, the two most important programming languages in the world for Data Science, which would help in building sustainable data products.

  • Integrated Development Environment (RStudio, PyCharm)

  • Coding best practices (Google’s R Style Guide and Hadley’s Style Guide, PEP 8)

  • Linter (lintR, Pylint)

  • Documentation – Code (Roxygen2, reStructuredText), README/Instruction Manual (RMarkdown, Jupyter Notebook)

  • Unit testing (testthat, unittest)

  • Packaging

  • Version control (Git)

These best practices reduce technical debt in long term significantly, foster more collaboration and promote building of more sustainable data products in any organization.
