“Kitchen Designs” is a multi-national corporation with offices and partners in many countries around the world. They are looking to use Python to help a number of their production phases, and the first step is to adopt two or three Python IDEs to test their fit in their various departments. For the adopted tools, they will provide training and test data, assess their strengths, and make any customization as needed.
This homework requires you to build the visualization(s) that would be used by managers and experts from various departments to provide a quick, complete, general view of properties as listed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_integrated_development_environments (only information from the Python section of that page can be used). The following pieces of information were deemed important, and should be apparent in your visualization(s):
only IDEs that have Class browser are to be considered (see the Class browser column in the Python table)
only the columns listed below are important for a tool:
first column, IDE, name
all columns from the third, Latest stable release version, to the fourteenth, Profiler.
The company would like you to create a visualization with all the potential tools (all that have Class browser), and present that to their managers and data experts to allow them to quickly find, compare, and discuss their favorite tool(s) particular to their situation. Assume that your audience has only a basic familiarity with the features described in the tables (this is more for managers than experts).
Use any tool of your choosing and build snapshots of the final visualization(s). It is expected, and it is part of difficulty of this homework, that you would try multiple tools. A good starting point is the list of Visualization Toolkits in Blackboard. Some have really good documentation and are easy to use, others may require more specialized knowledge.
In addition to tools made specifically for visualization, you may also try designing and drawing your own visualization (think Paint or PowerPoint drawing). Lecture slides from Blackboard cover a number of visualizations, and those may be able to provide an inspiration for this homework.
The data from the Python table at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_integrated_development_environments is the one to be used for this assignment. The columns and tables of interest have been identified in the bullet points above – the other information on that webpage is not relevant. One bullet point may cover multiple columns. Consider the discussion about data and data format from the lecture, and convert those tables in a suitable format (columns for data dimensions, rows for each instance). If needed, feel free to derive additional columns (attributes) from the data in those tables, but do not add information from other sources.
- Take snapshot(s) of your solution and add any explanation as needed to allow someone to use the snapshots easily (up to 80 points). Make sure you place your explanations and visualization is widely-used formats such as Word or PDF. Other students should be able to view those easily. A reminder that applies to all assignments is to submit an actual document not just a link to it, such as a Google docs link. A link to an interactive visualization could optionally be submitted, but it should be additional to the snapshot(s) and text.
aspects of Parkinson’s Disease are liable to improvement by placebo treatment, symptoms of rigidity and bradykinesia are more sensitive than the others. “Bradykinesia results from a failure of basal ganglia output to reinforce the cortical mechanisms that prepare and execute the commands to move.” (Berardelli, A., et al. 2001) In basic terms this means the neurons which control body movements are not functioning correctly, resulting in a reduced and slower velocity of movement. This symptom may be more inclined to the placebo effect than others because it is dependent on the formation of neural pathways. As I explained in the mechanisms of the placebo effect, the more these pathways are recalled and travelled, the stronger they become. This also links as to why verbal cues are most effective with regards to this aspect of parkinsonism; the learning process and the experience associated causes the formation of neurons and pathways. Eventually, this leads to an overall improvement in Parkinson patients, showing the full potential and effectiveness of the placebo effect in medicine. Expectation vs. Intensity This is perhaps the most predominant similarity between the confirmation bias and the placebo effect. Expectations cause changes and adjustments in cognitive and neuroscientific behavior, which may lead to, in the case of the placebo effect, more neural pathways being formed, or certain ones being travelled more frequently. This results in a stronger and more effective outcome, which may be more intense and powerful to some patients. When it comes to the confirmation bias, the more one seeks out and believes a particular opinion or thought, the more they will find things agreeing with their perception, so their bias increases in intensity, as does their strength in opinion. Studies and experiments have shown that for parkinsonian patients who have been, unknowingly, treated by placebo treatments, there is significant dopamine release when the declared probability of improvement is 75% or above. However, for those in the trial who were told they only received 25% to 50% of the medication, or were not verbally encouraged, the rate of improvement and dopamine release plateaued or decreased slightly. Verbal manipulation was used as the bulk of the treatment, with inert drugs and cues also being administered. Reflecting on her findings, specialist psychiatrist Lidstone (2010) said “placebos have been shown to activate reward circuitry, including stimulation of dopamine release in the ventral striatum… These results indicate that the expectation of therapeutic benefit in [Parkinson’s Disease] patients can directly modulate dopamine release.” This agrees with Benedetti (2009) who found that “dopamine activation was better related to the expectations of reward.” From these collective results, we can see that the more positive undertones and anticipations are conveyed to the patient, the more powerful the outcome is, and so more dopamine is released, hence the intensity and velocity of the formation of neural pathways is high as a result. Nickerson (1998) said, when writing of the effects of expectation on confirmation bias “expectations become self-fulfilling prophecies.” By this, he meant that what you expect will become or wi>GET ANSWER
