I Have A Very Import Question On Python Syntax by michelle5683(f): 7:32pm On Sep 22, 2017
I downloaded a nine hours video on python from youtube, and after seeing the video a while ago. I had basic knowledge of python. From strings - beautifulsoup - turtle - matplotlib etc.and I had a particular orientation on the syntax of python. Recently, in a bid to perfect my skills in python, I ventured into code academy to study with them , and then I noticed some differences. I just want to know if there are different ways of doing this or if I am wrong.

PS: I am just a beginner grin

My question is this,
In code academy, you may see something like
name = raw_input("What is your name?"wink, but this code doesn't work in my shell except I change it to
name = input("What is your name?"wink, I've also seen some other minor differences, what could be happening?

Your tutorial is using an outdated version of Python. Search for information about Python 2 and Python 3

Python 2 is not yet outdated, at least for now.

OP I suggest you start from Html, then CSS, then you move to JavaScript. After Js you can learn python.

I did those last year. I mean HTML5 and CSS3

@OP codeacademy uses python2.7 idle.. You're using 3.4 on your machine..The library functions for 2.7 and 3.x vary, though not significantly. Once you have a look at the documentation, you will get to know what its about... input and raw_input, etc.

i never used 2.7 .. But i can rewrite it in 3 .. The difference isn't really a big one to grab..

Those are not programming languages but mark up and styling languages, JavaScript is the programming language, but all three make you a very good programmer, HTML and CSS3 are like stairs

in python 2+ its raw_input python 3+ is input your python version matters

Does it matter that I've chosen 3 over 2?

it depends, there are some python libraries written in version 2, integrating version 3 will not work. learning both will be helpful.

you are welcome. if you are proficient in Python you can work on artificial intelligence, which is my Area.

i have worked on Image recognition using deep learning but now am currently working on crime detecting and tracking system using artificial intelligence. to train the system to recognize crime but I discovered it was very complex, it involved machine learning, deep learning and reinforcements learning am not good with reinforcement learning, that is what I want to learn now.

software development is ok. always learn a programming language base on what you want to use it for. all programming languages have strength and weakness. for example Golang and Erlang are very good in distributed system, nodejs and php for web application and so on.

Cool, i've worked on image recognition but using SVM.
I won't say i know deep learning enough, i've not applied it to any real project, i'm still battling with clustering algorithms.
And i've not even touched reinforcement learning.

How would you go about crime detection, is it based on text data or image data?

And have you worked on speech synthesizer? currently doing a project around it.

you need mathematics but you can do it without mathematics but you won't be able to read research papers. I want to become a researcher in the field.

Nope, just a programmer.
Any reason?

Nice to see that people are getting into deep learning (DL).
I have also been reading a lot about it for about a some time now (with some small image classification experiments on cifar-10 image dataset).

I have 2 questions for you.
1. Since you use python, do you use a DL framework/library. If yes, which one?
2. How does reinforcement learning (RL) fit into your project for crime dectection?

My guess for #2 is that you may want a system that can also 'act' and not just classify scenes as 'crime' or 'not crime'. If this is the case, then maybe I guess developing the system to 'act' by calling the appropriate security authority might be one of the angles you're looking at it from.

Anyway, I'm just guessing. I await you reply.

Thanks.


Lastly, @OP
Keep up the good work.
We need more people to take up interest in software (and also hardware) in this country.
Even more important than the above statement, we need more people to start using their skills to solve practical problems in our society.

Well done.

Ya, that's why i've not gone deep in DL, i only understand the theoretical explanations of neurons movement and not enough maths yet.
Still sticking to basic machine learning algorithms for now.

am using tensorflow, pytorch and Python numpy. only use numpy when you are good with the theories and maths but those libraries do that for you with ease. your guess are right, as I earlier said it a very complex work, up till now am still looking for ways to solve it. I downloaded a paper yesterday which I believe will give me clue to solve the problem, the paper is on reinforcement learning. that is the reason I want to learn reinforcement learning.

It's seems as though artificial intelligence is a large and unexploited part of python
