Jupyter Notebook: Interactive Visualization Approaches


Jupyter Notebooks are becoming the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of choice for data scientists and software engineers. Notebooks provide an excellent way of sharing research, code and documentation, hence promoting reproducible research. With widget libraries like ipywidgets and bqplot, we can now create rich applications, dashboards and tools by just using python code. In this talk, we will see how we can build interactive visualizations in the Jupyter notebook. We’ll cover use-cases including time series analysis, visualizations of machine learning models, visual analytics on web server logs and examples in finance.

Who is this presentation for?
Data Scientists, Software Engineers, Researchers

Prerequisite knowledge:
Basic understanding on machine learning

What you'll learn?
Users will learn how we can perform visual analytics and look at advanced data visualizations
