# (Python Example for Beginners)

Write a Pandas program to extract only non alphanumeric characters from the specified column of a given DataFrame.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````
import pandas as pd
import re as re

pd.set_option('display.max_columns', 10)

df = pd.DataFrame({
'company_code': ['c0001#','c00@0^2','\$c0003', 'c0003', '&c0004'],
'year': ['year 1800','year 1700','year 2300', 'year 1900', 'year 2200']
})

print("Original DataFrame:")
print(df)

def find_nonalpha(text):
result = re.findall("[^A-Za-z0-9 ]",text)
return result
df['nonalpha']=df['company_code'].apply(lambda x: find_nonalpha(x))

print("Extracting only non alphanumeric characters from company_code:")
print(df)
``````

Sample Output:

```Original DataFrame:
company_code       year
0       c0001#  year 1800
1      c00@0^2  year 1700
2       \$c0003  year 2300
3        c0003  year 1900
4       &c0004  year 2200
Extracting only non alphanumeric characters from company_code:
company_code       year nonalpha
0       c0001#  year 1800      [#]
1      c00@0^2  year 1700   [@, ^]
2       \$c0003  year 2300      [\$]
3        c0003  year 1900       []
4       &c0004  year 2200      [&]
```

## 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. Itâ€™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.
