Learner Reviews & Feedback for Simulating Time Series Data by Parallel Computing in Python by Coursera Project Network
About the Course
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.
