Python Chatbot: Build You Own Simple but Useful Chatbot with Python

A chatbot is a program which is able to engage in conversation with a human in a seamless and  a natural way. Technically this conversation can be by text or by computer speech. A general purpose Chatbot is some ways off in the future so Chatbots that exist today are are often designed for a… Continue reading Python Chatbot: Build You Own Simple but Useful Chatbot with Python

Python – How to Solve Simultaneous Equations

Python in combination with Numpy allows for using python to solve simultaneous equations in a few simple steps. Using python to solve simultaneous equations relies on matrix linear algebra and can be done by using a built-in function (method 1) or manually (method 2) manually manipulating the matrices  to solve. So how to solve simultaneous equations… Continue reading Python – How to Solve Simultaneous Equations

Solving Second Order Differential Equations in Python

This presentation outlines how to solve second order differential equations in python. The solution is obtained numerically using the python SciPy ode engine (integrate module). This solution is therefore not in analytic form but the output is as if the analytic function was computed for each time step. The method used here is generally applicable… Continue reading Solving Second Order Differential Equations in Python
