Write a Pandas program to get the numeric representation of an array by identifying distinct values of a given column of a DataFrame.

 

Sample Solution :

Python Code :


import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame({
    'Name': ['Alberto Franco','Gino Mcneill','Ryan Parkes', 'Eesha Hinton', 'Gino Mcneill'],
    'Date_Of_Birth ': ['17/05/2002','16/02/1999','25/09/1998','11/05/2002','15/09/1997'],
    'Age': [18.5, 21.2, 22.5, 22, 23]
})

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

label1, unique1 = pd.factorize(df['Name'])
print("nNumeric representation of an array by identifying distinct values:")
print(label1)
print(unique1)

Sample Output:

Original DataFrame:
             Name Date_Of_Birth    Age
0  Alberto Franco     17/05/2002  18.5
1    Gino Mcneill     16/02/1999  21.2
2     Ryan Parkes     25/09/1998  22.5
3    Eesha Hinton     11/05/2002  22.0
4    Gino Mcneill     15/09/1997  23.0

Numeric representation of an array by identifying distinct values:
[0 1 2 3 1]
Index(['Alberto Franco', 'Gino Mcneill', 'Ryan Parkes', 'Eesha Hinton'], dtype='object')

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.
