  • Extracting Structured Data From Recipes Using Conditional Random Fields

    By Erica Greene
    9 Apr 2015 | 11:16 am
    In 1994, a member of the newsroom named Rich Meislin wrote an internal memo about the value of “computer-based services” that The Times could offer its readers. One of the proposed services was RecipeFinder: a database of recipes “searchable by key ingredient” and “type of cuisine.” It took the company almost 20 years, several failed starts and a massive data cleanup effort, but the idea of cooking as a “digital service” (read: web app) is finally a reality. NYT Cooking launched last fall with over 17,000 recipes that users can search, save, rate and (coming…
  • Purifying the Sea of PDF Data, Automatically

    By Jeremy B. Merrill
    3 Apr 2015 | 8:39 am
    Many government agencies publish data about their work on a regular basis, often daily or weekly. Some conveniently post it in easy-to-use formats such as CSV files. Others, however, seem to disclose it begrudgingly, each week posting a stack of PDF files on a website and removing the previous set, with no archive anywhere. At least they’re publishing at all, right? I’ve been working on a pattern for purifying this sea of data, so even as agencies pour in more dirty PDFs, I automatically get pure, clean CSVs. I don’t have a full, generic solution to solve this problem concisely and…

  • How to Unit Test a RequireJS Application

    By Ben Wilhelm
    15 Jan 2015 | 12:32 pm
    Adding unit tests to an existing application can be a challenge. If the application wasn’t developed with testing in mind, getting your source code into shape so that your components are isolated and testable is like adding a new character to a story after the book is already written. Significant refactoring must be done to decouple and test your code. A particular challenge in writing unit testable code is mocking the dependencies in your test subjects. You need some means of exposing the “handles” of dependencies so that a test can pull them out and replace them with controllable…

    16 Apr 2015 | 12:49 am
    This article is written by Joshua N. Milligan, the author of Learning Tableau. You are now ready to set out on a journey of building advanced visualizations! "Advanced" does not necessarily mean difficult. Tableau makes many of these visualizations easy to create. Advanced also does not necessarily mean complex. The goal is to communicate the data, not obscure it in needless complexity. (For more resources related to this topic, see here.) read more
  • Visualization

    Paurnima Shilimkar
    14 Apr 2015 | 11:07 pm
    Humans are visual creatures and have evolved to be able to quickly notice the meaning when information is presented in certain ways that cause the wiring in our brains to have the light bulb of insight turn on. This "aha" can often be performed very quickly, given the correct tools, instead of through tedious numerical analysis. Tools for data analysis, such as pandas, take advantage of being able to quickly and iteratively provide the user to take data, process it, and quickly visualize the meaning. Often, much of what you will do with pandas is massaging your data to be able to visualize it…

    Cats, dogs and all sorts of memes, the Internet as we know it today is dominated by images. You can open almost any web page and you'll surely find images on the page. The more interactive our web browsing experience becomes, the more images we tend to use. So, it is tremendously important to ensure that the images we use are optimized and loaded as fast as possible. We should also make sure that we choose the correct image type. read more

    Last week I bought a Raspberry Pi 2 computer. I didn't pay anything for the USB keyboard and USB optical mouse that I use with this tiny computer, because they were donated to the public library where I work. Two weeks ago someone dropped off 10 new USB keyboards and 10 new USB mice; they were surplus from a computer upgrade cycle at a nearby office. To be sure, the value of the $35 USD Raspberry Pi 2 computer is extended when free USB keyboards and mice are available. There is a role, then, for schools, libraries, and makerspaces to collect these donated items in order to redistribute them…

  • How to Remove Given Character From String in Java - Recursion

    Javin Paul
    11 Apr 2015 | 6:32 am
    Write a program to remove a given character from String in Java. Your program must remove all occurrences of given character. For example, if given String is "aaaaa" and String to remove is "a" then output should be an empty String. Similarly if input String is "abc" and character to remove is "b" then your program must return "ac" as output. You are not allowed to use any JDK method or third party method which solves this method directly, but you can use basic String manipulation method like indexOf(), toChar() or substring() from…
  • 3 Ways to Prevent Method Overriding in Java - Private, Static and Final

    Javin Paul

    Every Java programmer knows that final modifier can be used to prevent method overriding in Java because there is no way someone can override final methods; but, apart from final modifier, is there any other way to prevent method overriding in Java? This was the exact question, asked to one of my friend in a recent Java interview at one of the leading Investment bank. I guess, he was lucky to get this question because he already knows those tricks and was able to answer it quickly. When he told me about his experience,  I didn't understand why someone ask this question? What is the…
