Olympics Medal Points - Intro to Data Science

• 0:01 - 0:03
All right, why don't we walk through the solution.
• 0:03 - 0:06
• 0:06 - 0:08
as we have in the previous exercises.
• 0:08 - 0:12
First, we're going to create a new, smaller dataframe called metal counts,
• 0:12 - 0:16
which is the olympic_medal_count_df DataFrame, but only the gold, silver, and
• 0:16 - 0:17
bronze columns.
• 0:18 - 0:22
Then we're going to use the numpy.dot function to matrix multiply this
• 0:22 - 0:27
metal_counts_matrix with the 4, 2, 1 array which represents the number of
• 0:27 - 0:30
points that each country would score for a gold, silver, or bronze medal.
• 0:30 - 0:33
So what we're going to get here is an array,
• 0:33 - 0:37
where the value is 4 times the number of gold medals plus 2 times the number of
• 0:37 - 0:41
silver medals plus 1 times the number of bronze medals.
• 0:41 - 0:45
Down here, I'm going to define this Python dictionary called olympic_points,
• 0:45 - 0:46
where again I provide us the keys,
• 0:46 - 0:50
the column names, and as the values panda series, where I provide as
• 0:50 - 0:55
the argument first the list of country names and here, this array points,
• 0:55 - 0:58
which again has the total number of points that each country earned.
• 0:59 - 1:06
Finally, I'm just going to say olympic_points_df is DataFrame of olympic_points.
• 1:06 - 1:09
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pandas and
• 1:09 - 1:11
numpy's functionality.
• 1:11 - 1:14
If you're interested to read more about what these libraries can do,
• 1:14 - 1:17
I encourage you to check out the full documentation which are found in
