scikit-learn: Clustering and the curse of dimensionality

In my last post I attempted to cluster Game of Thrones episodes based on character appearances without much success. After I wrote that post I was flicking through the scikit-learn clustering documentation and noticed the following section which describes some of the weaknesses of the K-means clustering algorithm: Inertia is not a normalized metric: we […]

scikit-learn: Trying to find clusters of Game of Thrones episodes

In my last post I showed how to find similar Game of Thrones episodes based on the characters that appear in different episodes. This allowed us to find similar episodes on an episode by episode basis, but I was curious whether there were groups of similar episodes that we could identify. scikit-learn provides several clustering […]

Firefighters of Contra Costa County

In the late 1990s, when the economy boomed and the housing bubble started to form, the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District (CCCFPD) noticed the flood of property tax revenues in California state coffers. Property taxes rose like never before. Things looked so rosy that the firefighters union and the retirement board struck a deal.…Read more Firefighters of Contra Costa County

Neo4j/scikit-learn: Calculating the cosine similarity of Game of Thrones episodes

A couple of months ago Praveena and I created a Game of Thrones dataset to use in a workshop and I thought it’d be fun to run it through some machine learning algorithms and hopefully find some interesting insights. The dataset is available as CSV files but for this analysis I’m assuming that it’s already […]

I just work here...



There is a food market close to Waterloo station south bank side. We were there the other day with the girls, got a pizza for the kid, wife and I decided to eat sausages. I got to the stand, girls waiting at a table, and bought two sausage plates. Back at the table, wifey say, "what's that, I asked for a hot dog". "Okay then" back to the sausage stand.

A long introduction I know and none of it really matters but just a bit of a setting the scene. Anyway, I get to the stand and me and the…

Under the radar programming

Some cool looking spitfires. Not quite under the radar but imagine they were...

Under the radar programming: blending some good quality software development with some "other stuff". The air corridor where all the great software is conceived in large organisations.

Large organisations are usually so swamped with mediocrity that nobody at any management level believes that anything decent can come out of any development team. It is usually futile to ask for air cover while programming/changing a major part of a system.

So take a business deliverable, enrich it with good quality software development (under the radar)…

Developer Supply Chain Management

At first, it was called “DLL Hell”. Then “JAR Hell”. “Assembly Hell”. Now, it’s fallen under the label of “NPM-Gate”, but it always comes back to the same basic thing software developers need to think about their software build and runtime dependencies as a form of Supply Chain Management. Failure to do so—on both the part of the supplier and the consumer—leads to the breakdown of civilization and everything we hold dear.

Well, OK, fine, not exactly the breakdown of all civilization. But certainly a breakdown in the part of civilization that is currently occupied by those who would lead…
