Data Wrangling in Python – How to Group Pandas Data By Hour Of The Day

Group Pandas Data By Hour Of The Day


/* Import libraries */
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

Create Data

/* Create a time series of 2000 elements, one very five minutes starting on 1/1/2000 */
time = pd.date_range('1/1/2000', periods=2000, freq='5min')

/* Create a pandas series with a random values between 0 and 100, using 'time' as the index */
series = pd.Series(np.random.randint(100, size=2000), index=time)

View Data

/* View the first few rows of the data */

Python Example for Beginners

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
