Data Science is NOT rocket science - BayLISA for August 2013

BayLISA welcomes SriSatish Ambati of 0xdata (pronounced "hexadata") to the August 2013 BayLISA meeting.

 

H2O by 0xdata brings better algorithms to big data. H2O is the open source math & machine learning platform for speed and scale. With H2O enterprises can use all of their data (instead of sampling) in real-time for better predictions. Data Scientists can take both simple & sophisticated models to production from the same interactive platform used for modeling, within R and JSON. H2O is also used as an algorithms library for Making Hadoop Do Math. Our earliest customers have built powerful domain specific predictive engines for Recommendations, Pricing and Outlier detection in Fraud & Insurance. 0xdata is the maker of H2O and nurturing a grassroots movement of math, systems and data scientists to herald the new wave of Discovery with Big Data Science.

 

Bio:

Sri is co-founder and ceo of 0xdata (@hexadata), the builders of H2O. H2O democratizes bigdata science and makes hadoop do math for better predictions. Before 0xdata, Sri spent time scaling R over bigdata with researchers at Purdue and Stanford. Prior to that Sri co-founded Platfora and was the Director of Engineering at DataStax. Before that Sri was Partner & Performance engineer at java multi-core startup, Azul Systems, tinkering with the entire ecosystem of enterprise apps at scale. Before that Sri was at sabbatical pursuing Theoretical Neuroscience at Berkeley. Prior to that Sri worked on nosql trie based index for semistructured data at in-memory index startup RightOrder.

 

 

Our meetings are scheduled for 7:30pm on the third Thursday of each month, at Yahoo's 700 1st Ave building in Sunnyvale (near Moffett Field, Juniper, Weird Stuff, and the Sunnyvale water plant/landfill).

 

 

 

BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets to discuss topics of interest to system administrators and managers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

We always welcome presentation topics and volunteer speakers. Use the "Contact us" link on this page to get in touch with BayLISA's directors.

    Hi folks, even though RSVPs close mid-afternoon, we will likely have room for a few more people... so if you joined late, feel free to meet us at Yahoo! at 7:30 for tonight's meeting.
