Nastel XRay is not just “boring” analytics
When most people think about analytics and data science, they don’t think fun. The XRay team applied analytics to a pertinent topic, the US elections discussions on various forums. The end result was a website that analyzes the various discussions and how it could play out in November. As the site says, we don’t care about what the data suggests one way or the other, but the analysis of the data itself was the key interest. Check it out HERE.

Why don’t I have an option to import data into my repository?
