Bridging Node.js and Python with PyNode to Predict Home Prices

In this article I demonstrate a novel Node.js package named PyNode used to invoke Python code within a Node.js application and, more importantly, receive Python return types in the calling Node.js application. To facilitate demonstrating this awesomeness I use the popular scikit-learn Python library to load the included California Housing dataset from the 1990 US Census and build a Linear Regression model for predicting home values within a Express.js application.

Intro to Machine Learning with Spammy Emails, Python and, SciKit Learn

Machine Learning is capturing significant attention among technologists and innovators due to a desire to shift from descriptive analytics focused on understanding what happened in the past towards predicting what is likely to occur in the future as well as prescribe actions to take in response to that prediction. In this article I focus on the use case of classifying email messages as either spam or ham with supervised machine learning using Python and SciKit Learn.
