Overviews of Graph Classification and Network Clustering methods

Thanks to Sebastian Raschka I am able to share this great GitHub overview page of relevant graph classification techniques, and the scientific papers behind them. The overview divides the algorithms into four groups: Factorization Spectral and Statistical Fingerprints Deep Learning Graph Kernels Moreover, the overview contains links to similar collections on community detection, classification/regression trees and gradient boosting papers…

Creating plots with custom icons for data points

Data visualizations that make smart use of icons have a way of conveying information that sticks. Dataviz professionals like Moritz Stefaner know this and use the practice in their daily work. A recent #tidytuesday entry by Georgios Karamanis demonstrates how easy it is to integrate visual icons in your data figures when you write code…

Tidy Missing Data Handling

A recent open access paper by Nicholas Tierney and Dianne Cook — professors at Monash University — deals with simpler handling, exploring, and imputation of missing values in data.They present new methodology building upon tidy data principles, with a goal to integrating missing value handling as an integral part of data analysis workflows. New data structures are…

Evolving Floorplans – by Joel Simon

Joel Simon is the genius behind an experimental project exploring optimized school blueprints. Joel used graph-contraction and ant-colony pathing algorithms as growth processes, which could generate elementary school designs optimized for all kinds of characteristics: walking time, hallway usage, outdoor views, and escape routes just to name a few.   Definitely check out the original write-up if you…

Interactive Explanation of Network and Graph Principles

Why do groups of people act smart, dumb, kind, or cruel? People behave in strange ways, particularly when they are able to influence one another. Both good and bad things can happen when people interact and behave in network structures. On the bright side, you must be familiar with the wisdom of the crowd, where…
