I’ve recently been playing around with dc.js to build some neat interactive data visualizations and dashboards to analyze the performance of machine learning models. The interactive data-slicing and visualizations enabled by dc.js and crossfilter are perfect for digging deep into any type of multi-dimensional data. They help with gaining a more intuitive understanding of the data, and help me better understand the performance and deficiencies of different machine learning models.

That isn’t meant as a criticism, just that it doesn’t look nearly as impressive out of the box as the slickly animated charts that you are likely accustomed to if you have used dc.js a fair bit. This of course is completely understandable since the goal of the
