Today's post is the first in a new series called Algorithms in the Wild, where we'll discuss case studies featuring machine learning algorithms in some very interesting applications! Our first case study comes from an article in Popular Science on 'How AI could help new Air Force pilots avoid costly...

So far, we've been working with single numbers in our posts. Many kinds of data, however, can be represented by matrices. In order to discuss and learn about methods designed for data stored in matrices, today's post is a quick tutorial on getting started with linear algebra in R!

In our first code lab on estimating pi with dart throwing, we talked briefly about algorithms. If you're new to algorithms, we can think of them as recipes, or instructions,...

In our last two posts, we went over how to start making data visualizations in R with ggplot2. Now that we've finished that series, let's work on a Code Lab...

Have you ever wondered how to make colorful and interesting plots and charts for data visualization? Today’s post is Part 1 of a two-part series on getting started with data...

This is the first post in a new Career Chat series featuring interviews with mathematicians, statisticians, data scientists, and people who work with math, statistics, and data. Although I originally...

In our last post, we approximated the mathematical constant \(\pi\) with simulated dart throwing in R. We also saw that, in general, as we increased the number of darts we...
