Get More Instagram Likes with Machine Learning

In this presentation, we will use Python and Cognitive Services to try and understand what makes people like photographs on Instagram more. We will also explore some great ways to run Python code in the cloud, including Visual Studio Codespaces, and some Python tooling, such as Pandas, Scikit Learn, Wordcloud, etc.

  11. Takeaways Data can Provide Incites In our example, we have

    explored the data and understood statistics of Instagram activities, most covered topics, etc. Data can Drive Decisions By exploring what affects outcomes we can take wiser decisions, e.g. what types of photographs to take, when to post, etc. Models can make Predictions We can build executable models that can predict desired outcomes Visual Studio Codespaces Great environment for any developer in the cloud
