Multilevel classification, Cohen kappa and Krippendorff alpha

Multilevel classification, Cohen kappa and Krippendorff alpha

I was facing an interesting problem last week. Playing with data from The Genome Cancer Atlas (full genetic and clinical data for thousands of patients) I was building a classifier that predicts the type of cancer based on sets of genetic signatures.

Biplots, correspondence analysis and ggplot2

Biplots, correspondence analysis and ggplot2

I was looking for biplots created with the use of ggplot2 library (because they look good and are customisable).
It turns out that there are some nice solutions for PCA (like sinhrks/ggfortify; kassambara/factoextra; vqv/ggbiplot; fawda123/ggord) but I could not find suitable solution for correspondence analysis.
So I create one….

You’re doing it wrong: surveys concerning the referendum which is to take place on 6th September

You’re doing it wrong: surveys concerning the referendum which is to take place on 6th September

I recently came across the presentations of the results of the surveys concerning participation in the planned referenda published by the portal Gazeta.pl.

My attention was caught by the diagram presented below which displays a distribution of answers to the question: “Are you going to vote in the referendum scheduled for 6th September?”

Circles and films from FilmWeb

Circles and films from FilmWeb

I have been working recently on visualization of genetic data. In that field a popular method of presentation are circles generated by the circlize library. Turning a blind eye to the problem of reading information from circles I must say that the possibilities…
