Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.16.3
Attention!!!! If you are running a Feathercoin version other than 0.16.3 upgrade imediately to 0.16.3 . It contains an important bug fix

website i'm starting ... your data mine (not crypto block mining )

    I thought i’d mention it here. I’ve decided to put together a website ( yourdatamine.com ) that will let you do adhoc data mining. There is nothing to see there yet. though hopefully by the end of the weekend there will be.

    i’ve long since written my own versions of gradient boosting, random forests, tsne and done a genetic algorithm implementation. I occurred to me yesterday I could quite easily expose them to the world and let people do their own predictions/data mining by merely dropping in a training csv and a test csv and letting the code do the work. I doubt it’ll ever replace a data scientist, but i figured the ability for a layman to get a quick fast result for a low cost is well worth it to a lot of people.

    I say cost, but it’s gonna be free till i figure out the interest. i’m going to advertise on explainxkcd.com at first and see if anyone uses it. I figure those readers are in my target demographic (at least till the rest of the world catches up).

    If I do start charging i’ll be sure FTC is a payment option 🙂

    Interesting project.

    I think I will try it soon.
    Just need to think about, what I’d like to mine for 😉

    it should be working now.

    edit okay… now it should really be working. my internet connection issues are fixed 🙂

    and please excuse some of the poor phrasing/grammar issues. I really need to rewrite some of it but i was trying to get it done in a weekend.

    I made the https://www.yourdatamine.com/ site a lot better yesterday. you can now pick settings for data mining and optimize those settings from training data. you can even try out a couple samples on the optimization tab without having data 🙂 … i still haven’t started advertising it. i want at least a few more samples. But, soon!

    The site is very good now, especially the examples help to get the meaining of the calculations. 😃

    did you advertise your site on the FTC Telegram or Discord?

    very interesting. I work for a big data firm and this is really nice to see. you should put links to your github on it!

    @Wellenreiter I added more samples last night. some are more dubious than others 🙂 (as is the nature of data mining) I added some graphics to … favorite.ico and a big one int how to page (got them from shutter stock and edited them up in gimp). I haven’t advertised anywhere yet, i will definitely look in to doing it those places. i did join the 2 biggest facebook groups just so i share a link there but i think i dont think i’m quite what people expect in those groups.

    @AcidD I actually haven’t put my code in github at all. I do stock analysis as well for personal investment and of course work on kaggle contests from time to time. It all uses some version of this code. so pretty much everything i have I kinda want to keep to myself till i get some sort of payout from it. Then well anyone can have the code. Is that greedy? its been a hobby since the netflix contest years ago. I’d just like to see something monetary wise before i give it to the world.

    I also have a TSNE implementation that is linear runtime, i might add to the website some day. As well as my genetic stuff that does all kinds of magical things. But i’m about to retool that to work on making new features instead of solving the big problem (i think it’ll do a better job of that)

    There will probably be 1 more significant update to the site where i add 2 or 3 more samples and add the ability to have features that are categorical via an optional 2nd header row (which can either be split automatically for you via one-hot-encoding, or compiled down to averages solution value for that particular categorical value, your choice)
