  • An AutoGUI for Curve Fitting in Python

    One of the most basic tasks in science and engineering is fitting a model to some data. Doing so in Python is strait forward using curve_fit from scipy.optimize. In the same way seaborn builds on matplotlib by creating a high-level interface to common statistical graphics, we can expand on the curve fitting process by building a simple, high-level interface for defining and visualizing these sorts of optimization problems.

    I’m currently in the processes of rebuilding this website and migrating content to the new codebase. I’m interested in writing posts on some the awesome data science projects I’ve been working on; since I last updated the site my wife and I have had a new baby girl and moved across the country to the NY Metro area for a new job.
