I never got round to writing a tutorial on how to use word2vec in gensim. It s simple enough and the API docs are straightforward, but I know some people prefer more verbose formats. Let this post be a tutorial and a reference example.
The annual useR! international R User conference is the main meeting of the R user and developer community. In 2014, the conference will be held at the campus of the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA).
The last time a world cup was held in South America was in 1978 - before the internet. Each time South America has hosted the world cup, a South American team has won. Will it happen again? In 2010, 46% of the world's population tuned into the world cup final to find out. This world cup is likely to be even bigger. Despite the frenzy, a fully open and well documented REST API for the world cup doesn't exist. Our mission at kimonoLabs is to enable you - the builders - to bring data scattered across the web to life.
We couldn't let the World Cup sneak by without a proper API, so we built one. Our API provides up-to-date data on all 32 national teams and 736 players.
Structured data gives you the power to ask interesting questions. Quick want to find out which team has scored the most goals? Orwhich player? Wondering who are the youngest players participating in the cup? What about the nicknames of the entire Brazilian team? We also have historical data for each player so you can look up who's coming in with the most regular season goals or alternatively, the most red cards. What questions do you have?

The “wisdom of crowds” refers to the phenomenon that aggregated predictions from a large group of people can rival or even beat the accuracy of experts. In domains with substantial stochastic elements, such as stock picking, crowd strategies (e.g. indexing) are difficult to beat. However, in domains in which some crowd members have demonstrably more skill than others, smart sub-crowds could possibly outperform the whole.
