Here’s an interactive data visualization of some key stats about each state (and DC) such as: state capital, size in square miles, largest city (by population), state population, year of statehood, population density (taking into account land size), population change in percentage over the years, highest peak in state and median household income.

## Population, Procreation Simulation (Python)

In this post, I share my design and code for simulating some propagating organisms (you can think of them as humans, other creatures, cells, whatever you like) with certain rules. And although I have a couple of other variations of this made in C/C++ in the past, I wanted to do it in Python and […]

## A very effective, new AI-driven Video Creator

I am constantly scanning the AI space for new developments and newcomers in the arena. One of the most practical and stable tool I recently discovered is Pictory. It does video creation with a simple text script input, it generates videos even from a URL from any source (like a blog or article online) and […]

## Animating Charts in Excel and beyond

Some time ago I demonstrated how to create Time-lapse animations in Excel in my post here. Part of that procedure utilized a short-lived but cool feature called ‘PowerView’. Unfortunately, as of late 2021, Microsoft has removed support for PowerView in Excel (that made this time-lapse animation possible) and instead is encouraging users to use PowerBI […]

## How is chatGPT useful?

Author’s note: Instead of me explaining the benefits of ChatGPT, I figured why not let ChatGPT write its own summary and toot its own horn, and best of all write it straight into my blog site, creating a real blog post (without having me to copy/paste) and go live?! So, there we have it…this post […]

This is an example of a Decision Tree model (very useful and popular method) to make prediction using the power of Machine Learning…using just a normal PC. Here we predict salary (depedendent variable) by giving various types of criteria (different forks in a decision tree). e.g. What’s the salary of a particular gender, of some […]
