    A Web Data Connector using Python machine learning

    Erik Eklund

      A while ago I was wondering if I could use the Tableau Web Data Connector to upload files to a server running Python then process the data with a machine learning library (such as scikit-learn) and return the predicted values and model validation metrics in a Tableau extract. It worked quite well so I wrote a post on it which can be found here http://doubleee.pythonanywhere.com/wdcblog  

       

      I developed this connector some time ago, so it uses the WDC 1.1 version.  It's a prototype so there are room for improvements... 

      Yeah, the possibilities with Tableau are quite amazing.

       

      All the best!
