Enjoyed SPARQLTHON and weekend #memo

In this week I participated SPARQLTHON #78 where held on national institute of genetics.

I am not familiar to SPARQL so it was difficult to develop something with SPARQL, but I tried to use SPARQLWRAPPER which is package for using sparql from python and tried to retrieve information from ChEMBL RDF.

It was good opportunity for me because I could focus on coding and after the hackathon, I could have many fruitful discussion with other participants. I was surprised that traditional analytic method is more useful than deep learning in the area of genetics. Because physicochemical properties control genetics so found rules such as Mendere law are stronger than traditional machine learning methods. Deep learning is useful but I have to consider the case when it will be effective.

And this weekend I and my kids went to cherry-blossom viewing party. In Japan, current season is good for the event. There are many cherry-blossom. It is really beautiful and temperature becomes warmer. I like the season expect be suffering from a hay fever.

Here are some photos of cherry-blossom. Tomorrow is the beginning of a fiscal year. I will enjoy and do my best.
