How to Find Best Material Takeoff & Estimating Company

Article | March 20, 2020

Construction material takeoff is considered as a very important part of the overall cost estimation in any construction project. Without a price estimation, it is not only difficult to provide a layout but lack of material estimation also raises a lot of doubt later. In this process, the contractors are required to use the actual blueprints of the building to be prepared and calculate the quantity of material that will be required for the overall price and the supplies that are needed. According to this information the project budget is calculated later, which is the main reason it is very important to have an accurate estimate.

Feature engineering in machine learning

Article | March 20, 2020

Feature engineering is the process of extracting new variables by transforming raw data to improve the predictability of a machine learning model. But feature engineering is not just this kind of simple translation of categories like names or colors into numbers. The following section includes a collection of different kinds of engineering approaches that go beyond a translation of categories into numbers and address needs such as transforming numbers into categories or filtering data points due to missing or false data.
