In the Czech Republic, only a fraction of psychotherapeutic care is covered by health insurance companies. So, it was a welcomed step when VZP, one of the largest such companies, offered its clients an allowance of 7 000 CZK (or circa 280 EUR) for psychotherapy.
However, the way of finding yourself a psychotherapist was not the most convenient one as you had to scroll through a .pdf file. Luckily, Dominika Čechová, a board member of the Czech Association for Psychotherapy, negotiated additional information from VZP like which of the psychotherapists can take new clients.
Starting to work with a new tool may not be easy, especially when that “tool” means a new programming language. At the same time, there might be an opportunity to build upon something already known and so make the transition smoother and less painful.
In my case, it was the transition from R to Python. Unfortunately, my former colleagues, pythonians, did not share my genuine fondness of R. Also, whether R enthusiasts like it or not, Python is a widely used tool in data analysis/engineering/science and beyond. …
Generative art represents the involvement of a human-independent system (such as an algorithm) in a creative process. Such a system is a key element within the creative process, including its outputs.
Unsurprisingly, there are many “tools” you can use if you want to delve into generative art. In case you want to have “hands-on” experience in R, there are two basic directions you can go.
If you are a person proficient in working with code, you may write your code straight away. …
My name is Vit Gabrhel, and I am a data enthusiast.
I started my data journey as a researcher in the mobility field, but nowadays, I envision myself on the road of becoming a “full-stack data scientist”.
I believe that data could serve not only as a way to understand the world but also to appreciate its beauty. Just take a look at the following example of the generative art located bellow. It is based solely on a data simulation, a k-d tree algorithm.
Also, I am convinced that insights from data can be transformed into action and so benefit…
