discussion on how we can use statistical methods to measure and improve the efficacy of http://freeCodeCamp.com
@cuent Sorry, my fault: I was mentioning d3.js because in the presentation Evelina Gabasova used F# code apparently calling the t-SNE resulting plot by using a d3.js-like library? No: d3.js can not be used directly to prepare a presentation: it could be as embedded code for charts or similar. Sorry for that.
@cuent : again, nice the youtube link you gave us: we have been discussing some topics mentioned by her here. I think we can continue in that direction so we can have this channel as an additional reference also for that kind of discussions! Also interesting other GoTo Conference talks.
@erictleung Thanks! Have you experienced its use with some data? Share with us and specially with @cuent who is the person who first asked about!
@zarak here you go! excellent, thanks for the info!
@jacqueline-homan, @jomcode, @razerh0 @darwinc : you brought the F# to this chat and now you managed to persuade some of us to start something with F#. Any place to start? We can list from your previous posts:
Can you guide us? Please share!
Question: I am finding that my 4-core CPU and 16G Ram are limiting my possibilities. Any suggestion for someone who would like to use cloud? Any suggestion about GPU in cloud too?

I am currently reading a book about Information Design and wanted to share some of the concepts with you. The book start by citing a historical reference to a quote attributed to Julius Caesar suggesting him as the person who said there were three types of information. His views were certainly politically driven but the classification deserves consideration by anyone who want to convey information to the public. According to the author of the book (J. Katz, Designing Information), there could be more than 3 classes to include other ways of "Information":
I should add this concept for or change names to include:
I would also add IMO:
@karansaulakh have you seen this article?
You can also contact the author to ask for more. We also have a list of suggested sources through this channel but we need to collect and organise them. Possibly a task to be done before the end of this year.

As you might know I have been working on ways to extract topics and summarise information from the chats. Recently I have exploring some already known techniques. After comparing their outcomes I decided to use Non-Negative Matrix Factorization for being:
The results, albeit the usual subjectivity when analysing human behaviour and specially language, were actually acceptable.
Also you might have noticed that my interest would be to combine message and social networks. So I did an analysis also based on who talk about the possibly revealed topics.
I made a draft exploration of only one week and 6 extracted topics out of 20 possible ones. Usernames are given but the week analysed is not directly quoted. You can find a first visualization of this project in my codepen
I will be open to your feedback.
:+1: yes thanks! Also I must admit I am not a rock star in css+html, but I am working my way into it. Let's see how it goes.
@apottr If you come with ideas, observations, or things related to your interest, please share? We certainly want to know. Thanks for the feedback. Going to bed. Take care!
