Week 4: Tracing Errors

Mar 18, 2019


This Week:

I am cleaning the data using the tips my internal advisor has provided me with. I am also starting to write a machine learning algorithm which classifies the song artist and popularity. This is the first step in identifying and later predicting song popularity.

I also began to have troubles with the PyCharm CE environment and hence switched to using command line + sublime text — I find this much easier and simpler to work with.

Last but not least, I encountered an error with the dataset while conversing with my internal advisors. The hdf5 files were structured like a tree, and the script I had written to generate the CSV file was not picking up the year the song was built accurately for every data point. Hence, I tried to clear this error by rerunning the script to generate another 10,000 songs, and using Excel tools to clear all entries without a year in their tags.

Till Next Time,

Swarit 😀

    I don’t have any background in CS, but it sure seems like you know what you’re doing Swarit! I love the concept of your project and how relevant it is.

    This project reminds me of Mark Zuckerberg’s Synapse creation…if all works out, maybe this project could be even better…

    Quick Comment on Week 3, I seem to be unable to access the blog post (sorry about that). Swarit, you have succeed in breaking my computer through unlimited redirects (https://siliconvalley.basisindependent.com/2019/03/10/week-3-%E0%A4%AF%E0%A5%8B%E0%A4%9C%E0%A4%A8%E0%A4%BE-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/?-the-plan/)

    Onto the comments for this week: It’s great that you are able to find and fix the bugs in your program, especially writing another program to automate the fixing. Can’t wait to see how the project progresses!
