Week 9.75

I hope the random Harry Potter reference was spotted.

This ‘week’ was only two days long due to Thanksgiving. The first day involved a case study where we split into different groups, with each group assigned an algorithm or way of analyzing the data related to indentifying spam. Afterwards, each grou had to present on their analyzes and take questions from the class on their methodology and findingds. The second days was another Python catch-up day as we dived in Principal Component Analysis, K-means Clustering, and Hierarchical Clustering that we already explored in R.

I’m writing this on the Sunday before the last stretch. In three more weeks the cohort will have reached the finish line.
