I used Scott’s excellent RapidMiner Instagram API tutorial to build one of my clients a simple hashtag/keyword tool for brand marketing. The problem with that process was that it used the Instgram API and needed access tokens. First, getting an access token from Instagram was an utter pain in the butt and second, the Instgram API is being deprecated.
Fast forward 6 months and my neice in South Africa has started a TravelBlog site.
For a project I had to spin up an EC2 instance and install RapidMiner Studio there. I needed a static IP to make some connections to a database across the ocean and figured AWS was the easiest route. It turned out not to be that easy.
I ended having to install Java 8, RapidMiner Studio, X11 Windows, XMING server, and use Putty to bring it all together. The end result, I had to port forward X11 to my Windows Laptop.
There was a question from the RapidMiner Community on how to make a word clouds in RapidMiner using R. It’s really easy.
First, you’ll need to make sure you have the Execute R extension installed and configured, then you need to download the “wordcloud” and “RColorBrewer” packages from R Cran Repository.
Finally, grab this sample XML and pop it in your RapidMiner Studio. Note: I saved the image to my desktop, you’ll have to repath it to where you want to save the PNG.
I completely fail in this live stream and it’s hilarious. Before I crash and burn, I do talk about how to upsample, downsample, and balance data! Come check it out.
My latest livestream. In this episode I continue with the Word2Vec process and build a synomym stemming dictionary. Then I talk about how to do time series in RapidMiner. I explain the Windowing operator, the Sliding Window Validation operator and show how to insert a bit of R code to deseason a time series.
I’m going to change the time for the next Live Stream. Stay tuned for next livestream on 5/25/18 at 12PM EDT.
