Analyzing a WhatsApp group chat with Seaborn, NetworkX and Transformers

We had a company shutdown recently. Simfoni operates ‘Anytime Anywhere’, which means that anyone can work whatever hours they feel are appropriate from wherever they want to. Every quarter we mandate a full company shutdown over a long weekend to make sure that we all take time away from work at the same time and come back to a clear inbox.

For me this meant a bunch of playing with my kids and hanging out in the garden.

But it also meant playing with some fun tech courtesy of a brief challenge I was set: what insights could I generate quickly from a WhatsApp chat list.

I had a go using some of my favourite tools: Seaborn for easy data visualization; Huggingface Transformers for ML insights and Networkx for graph analysis.
