Austin ACM SIGKDD Monthly Meeting

The next Austin ACM SIGKDD Monthly Meeting is Wednesday, December 19, 2012, 7-8 PM at Northwest Recreation Center. The topic for the meeting is missing data. A lecture on methods for missing data in statistical modeling based on methods in the book, "Statistical Analysis With Missing Data", by Little and Rubin will be presented. It has been one year since the formation of Austin ACM SIGKDD!!! Following the lecture there will be a combined Anniversary / Christmas party. Please signup to bring some drinks or snacks. We generally have 10-20 people in attendance at the meetings.


Please join ACM SIGKDD. Drop me a line if you join. We need to have elections for officers in February. Only official members of ACM SIGKDD can run. We have to have at least three ACM SIGKDD members to keep the chapter going.


Weekly brown bag lunch for Kaggle Competitions

Austin ACM SIGKDD meets on Monday for a brown bag lunch at Austin Tech Ranch to discuss Kaggle competitions. The lunch is sponsored by Elastic Knowledge. We have been having a good turn out for the meetings, between 8 to 10 people per meeting. We have been discussing the new GE competitions on Kaggle.

People have been having problems finding Austin Tech Ranch on Old Jollyville Road. Please check the map before coming. If you know where the building is that the plane hit a couple of years ago, Tech Ranch is in the last building south on old Jollyville road in that group of buildings.

Please bring your laptop and a power cord.


I have started an open source project to build a data cube on Hadoop and HBase. Data cubes are used to build multi-dimension data models for data warehouses. The project is called Hadoop Cube. One of the goals of the project is to provide the MDX query language for the Hadoop ecosystems. Another goal is to provide linear statistical models and machine learning techniques for Hadoop scaled multi-dimensional data models. Part of the project is related to research I am conducting at Texas A & M on implementing linear statistical models and linear algebra in Hadoop. Contact me if you are interested in participating.


Please join Austin ACM SIGKDD to continue receiving notices of our activities.
