Learn how to find the rate of change of a time dependent parameter
Learn how to simulate large number of values using the starmap function
Learn how to simulate large datasets while maintaining the original correlation using a custom function passed to parallel processes
By the end of this project, you will learn how to simulate large datasets from a small original dataset using parallel computing in Python, a free, open-source program that you can download. Sometimes large datasets are not readily available when a project has just started or when a proof of concept prototype is required. In this project, you will learn how to find the rate of change of a time dependent parameter. Next, you will learn how to simulate large number of values using the starmap function. Lastly, you will learn how to simulate large datasets while maintaining the original correlation between columns using a custom function passed to parallel processes. In this project, you will generate 10000 time dependent samples from an initial dataset containing just 20 samples. In reality, you can use several parallel processes and can generate millions of new time dependent samples which can be used to experiment a new big data product or solution. Note: You will need a Gmail account which you will use to sign into Google Colab. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Create a function to calculate the rate of change of a time series data
Apply the above function on time series data files
Simulate new values of rates using Pool's starmap function
Define a function to simulate real world parameter values – part I
Define a function to simulate real world parameter values – part II
Initialize variables to start the parallel simulation
Initiate and track the simulation using 2 parallel processes
Create the final dataframe containing a time column

What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
