6 essential Python tools for data science—now improved

Published

on

If you want to master, or even just use, data analysis, Python is the place to do it. Python is easy to learn, it has vast and deep support, and most every data science library and machine learning framework out there has a Python interface.

Over the past few months, several data science projects for Python have released new versions with major feature updates. Some are about actual number-crunching; others make it easier for Pythonistas to write fast code optimized for those jobs.

Python data science essential: SciPy 1.7

Python users who want a fast and powerful math library can use NumPy, but NumPy by itself isn’t very task-focused. SciPy uses NumPy to provide libraries for common math- and science-oriented programming tasks, from linear algebra to statistical work to signal processing.

How SciPy helps with data science

SciPy has long been useful for providing convenient and widely used tools for working with math and statistics. But for the longest time, it didn’t have a proper 1.0 release, although it had strong backward compatibility across versions.

The trigger for bringing the SciPy project to version 1.0, according to core developer Ralf Gommers, was chiefly a consolidation of how the project was governed and managed. But it also included a process for continuous integration for the MacOS and Windows builds, as well as proper support for prebuilt Windows binaries. This last feature means Windows users can now use SciPy without having to jump through additional hoops.

Since the SciPy 1.0 release in 2017, the project has delivered seven major point releases, with many improvements along the way:

‘Ted Lasso’ takes over Apple homepage to celebrate second season launch | AppleInsider

Published

on

Hit Apple TV+ series “Ted Lasso” has taken over Apple’s homepage to celebrate the release of the show’s second season on Friday.

The main page at apple.com now features a bright blue background. When you first navigate to it, the season two tagline — “kindness makes a comeback — flashes onscreen before Jason Sudeikis’s Ted Lasso character appears.

Once the animations stops, Apple leads users to the second season on Apple TV+ with a “stream now” button.

“Ted Lasso” season two officially premiered in Los Angeles on Friday, July 16. The second season officially launched with its first episode on Apple TV+ on Friday, July 23. New episodes will debut weekly each Friday.

The series has been one of Apple’s most successful pieces of original content. It has been nominated for a total of 20 Emmy awards in 2021, and Apple has already renewed the show for a third season.

Apple occasionally uses its homepage to promote services or celebrate other occasions. In 2020, for example, Apple Arcade took over the main website. The “Ted Lasso” promotion is unique because it takes up the entire page and doesn’t feature any of the company’s hardware products.

The company has also promoted “Ted Lasso” season two with special Memoji stickers at Apple retail locations and Today at Apple sessions focused on artwork inspired by the show.
