  • KDE Plasma 5.4 Enhances Linux Desktop Experience

    The K Desktop Environment (KDE) is one of the earliest Linux desktop environments, dating all the way back to 1996, predating even the popular GNOME desktop environment, which was started in 1999. On Aug. 25, the core KDE desktop, Plasma, got an incremental update to version 5.4 that builds on the innovations that the first Plasma 5 release introduced in July. Among the many changes that users will notice with Plasma 5.4 are more than 1,400 new icons for all KDE applications, providing a more streamlined, modern look and feel to the desktop. Also new to Plasma 5.4 is an optional Application Dashboard that provides a different way to open up applications. Finding an application, or anything else on the KDE desktop, is also improved by way of enhanced search history in the integrated KRunner search tool that is part of the desktop. Plus, the 5.4 update now provides initial support for the Wayland display server that is intended to be a replacement for the decade-old X-Window server. KDE as a desktop environment is available on multiple Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Fedora and openSUSE. In this slide show, eWEEK examines some of the key features of the KDE Plasma 5.4 desktop.

  • KDE Sprints - who wins?

    To start with, KDE sprints are intensive sessions centered around coding. They take place in person over several days, during which time skillful developers eat, drink and sleep code. There are breaks to refresh and gain perspective, but mostly sprints involve hard, focused work. All of this developer time and effort is unpaid. However travel expenses for some developers are covered by KDE. KDE is a frugal organization with comparatively low administrative costs, and only one paid person who works part time. So the money donated for sprints goes to cover actual expenses. Who gets the money? Almost all of it goes to transportation companies.

  • Logistic Regression in R

    In data science and Statistics, it is a regression model if the dependent variable results in categorical values like True/False, Yes/No, or 0/1. Usually, the logistic regression model is binomial. However, it can be extended. It measures the probability of the successfulness or failure of an event as a dependent variable which is based on a mathematical equation. This equation relates the dependent variable (response variable) with the independent variables (predictor). We can say that logistic regression is a generalized form of linear regression but the main difference is in the predicted value range is (-∞, ∞) while the range of predicted value in logistic regression is (0,1). In this post, we will learn about logistic regression and how to implement it in the R programming language.

  • The new learntla is now online!

    One lesson I’ve learned the hard way is that keeping lots of assets in sync is an absolute nightmare. So this version has a lot more software managing that for me. In particular, I built a pipeline for handling spec assets. I have several XML spec templates that represent “sequences of iterations” on a spec. A python script unpacks the template into a set of .tla files. After I put in appropriate metadata, a second script cleans up each spec into a “presentable” form, loads the metadata into the appropriate files, and places the asset in the appropriate path.

  • Seaborn Regplot

    Seaborn is a Matplotlib-based visual analytics library. It has a high-level framework for defining the visually appealing analytical graphs. Matplotlib package is the foundation of the Seaborn module. To visualize the statistics and regression analysis, we use the regplot() function. To evaluate the regression model, there are many other interrelated contradictory approaches. Whenever the predicted output is a continuous as well as a cumulative value, it is referred to as a prediction model. Numerous other approaches can be employed. The most basic of which is the linear model. It integrates the values to the optimal higher dimensional space that passes through all of the vertices. The regplot() function is used to create the regression plots. Regression Analysis is a technique used for evaluating the associations between one or more independent factors or predictors and the dependent attributes or covariates. The variations in the requirements in correlation to modifications in specific determinants are analyzed through the Regression Analysis. The criteria’s declarative requirement is dependent on the indicators, which give the new value of the dependent attributes whenever the data points are updated. Evaluating the intensity of covariates, anticipating an outcome, and estimating are the three important applications of a regression model.

  • Seaborn HeatMap Colors

    Heatmaps are colored maps that display data in a two-dimensional format. Color variation is achieved by using hue, saturation, or brightness to portray the varied information on the color maps. This color variation provides the readers with visual information about the size of quantitative values. Heatmaps substitute numbers with colors since the human mind understands views better than the textual data. Considering that humans are primarily visual, it makes sense to present the data in any manner. Heatmaps are simple-to-understand visual representations of data. As a result, data visualization tools like Heatmaps are becoming increasingly popular. Heatmaps are used to display patterns, variance, and anomalies, as well as to depict the saturation or intensity of the variables. Relationships between variables are depicted via heatmaps. Both axes are used to plot these variables. By observing the color shift in the cell, we can look for the patterns. It only takes numerical input and shows it on the grid, with different data values displayed by the varying color intensity. Many various color schemes can be used to depict the heat map, each with its own set of perceptual advantages and disadvantages. Colors in the Heatmap indicate patterns in the data, thus the color palette decisions are more than just cosmetic. The finding of patterns can be facilitated by the appropriate color palettes but can also be hindered by the poor color choices. Colormaps are used to visualize heatmaps since they are a simple and effective way to see data. Diverse colormaps could be utilized for different sorts of heatmaps. In this article, we’ll explore how to interact with Seaborn heatmaps using the colormaps.

  • How To Do Train Test Split Using Sklearn In Python

    In this article, let’s learn how to do a train test split using Sklearn in Python. Train Test Split Using Sklearn The train_test_split() method is used to split our data into train and test sets. First, we need to divide our data into features (X) and labels (y). The dataframe gets divided into X_train,X_test , y_train and y_test. X_train and y_train sets are used for training and fitting the model. The X_test and y_test sets are used for testing the model if it’s predicting the right outputs/labels. we can explicitly test the size of the train and test sets. It is suggested to keep our train sets larger than the test sets.
