Write a Pandas program to check whether alpha numeric values present in a given column of a DataFrame.

Note: isalnum() function returns True if all characters in the string are alphanumeric and there is at least one character, False otherwise.

 

Sample Solution:

Python Code :


import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame({
    'name_code': ['Company','Company a001','Company 123', '1234', 'Company 12'],
    'date_of_birth ': ['12/05/2002','16/02/1999','25/09/1998','12/02/2022','15/09/1997'],
    'age': [18.5, 21.2, 22.5, 22, 23]
})

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

print("\nWhether all characters in the string are alphanumeric?")
df['name_code_is_alphanumeric'] = list(map(lambda x: x.isalnum(), df['name_code']))
print(df)

Sample Output:

Original DataFrame:
      name_code date_of_birth    age
0       Company     12/05/2002  18.5
1  Company a001     16/02/1999  21.2
2   Company 123     25/09/1998  22.5
3          1234     12/02/2022  22.0
4    Company 12     15/09/1997  23.0

Whether all characters in the string are alphanumeric?
      name_code            ...            name_code_is_alphanumeric
0       Company            ...                                 True
1  Company a001            ...                                False
2   Company 123            ...                                False
3          1234            ...                                 True
4    Company 12            ...                                False

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.
