7.3. Finding the Cheaters

In this lesson, you are going to do a simplified version of the analysis outlined in the Tennis Racket article. We have prepared an anonymized data file for you that contains a numeric identifier instead of a name, along with the starting odds and the ending odds of a number of tennis matches. Your goal is to identify the cheaters. You can get the data from puzzle_anon.csv.

Now that you have identified the cheaters, can you match the cheaters with their real names? Here is a dataset that contains their names.

Q-3: What are three main points that you take away from the Tennis Racket article?

Q-4: What are three main points that you take away from the unmasking article? What ethical considerations are important to you when considering un-anonymizing some other data set?
