Write a Pandas program to fill missing values in time series data.

From Wikipedia , in the mathematical field of numerical analysis, interpolation is a type of estimation, a method of constructing new data points within the range of a discrete set of known data points.

 

Sample Solution :

Python Code :


import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

sdata = {"c1":[120, 130 ,140, 150, np.nan, 170], "c2":[7, np.nan, 10, np.nan, 5.5, 16.5]}

df = pd.DataFrame(sdata)
df.index = pd.util.testing.makeDateIndex()[0:6]

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

print("nDataFrame after interpolate:")
print(df.interpolate())

Sample Output:

Original DataFrame:
               c1    c2
2000-01-03  120.0   7.0
2000-01-04  130.0   NaN
2000-01-05  140.0  10.0
2000-01-06  150.0   NaN
2000-01-07    NaN   5.5
2000-01-10  170.0  16.5

DataFrame after interpolate:
               c1     c2
2000-01-03  120.0   7.00
2000-01-04  130.0   8.50
2000-01-05  140.0  10.00
2000-01-06  150.0   7.75
2000-01-07  160.0   5.50
2000-01-10  170.0  16.50

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.
