Capturing Captchas – Setting a baseline

captcha neural network random forest baseline machine learning

Hiya!

This time we are finally applying some of those machine learning skill! Before we can start with the CNN, we should set a baseline. So let’s start!

Slicing Captchas – How to process images

captcha part two

Hiya!

Welcome to part two of the Captcha project. In the last blog post we laid out the plan on how to process captchas and make predictions on them. In this second part, we will check on how to turn a captcha into four separate letter images!

Project Number Two

project coding

Hello everyone!

Holidays are over and it is time for a new project! Last year around this time (I think) I tried to code a game in Python from scratch. This year – coincidentally around the same time – I try to create an app for my mobile phone. Once again I will write a little coding diary about all the little troubles and stepping stones along the way and all the sweet sweet moments of success.

Debugging 101 (written by a novice)

Hello everyone!

Another Saturday, another post haha! This time I have some debugging tips for you. You wrote some beautiful code and you run it and DAAAMMMNN it is not working. We have all been there. And it does not really matter whether it has been some really big logical mistake or just a typo.  If you are an old player in the coding game, you might know most of the tips… if you are – like me – a novice, they might come in handy!

Data Analyst, Scientist and Engineer

easter nest three

Hello everyone!

A while back I wrote about what a Data Scientist is. When you are scrolling through Data Science jobs, you might also find postings for jobs as Data Analyst or Data Engineer. Obviously, all three are related to Data Science but what exactly do those job profiles mean? Let’s find out together!
