This will be our our first event! Many thanks to TM R&D for providing the venue.
We start at 2.30pm and will leave the TM campus at around 5pm (we will probably continue informally somewhere nearby). Our programme includes 3 interesting talks, that I'm very much looking forward to hearing!
Please spread the word about this group. See you all there!
1) Julian Lee (Revolution Analytics) will deliver a talk on R, titled "Big Data Analytics - Finding Needles in a Haystack".
2) Daniel Walters (Experian Hitwise) will deliver a talk on the Hitwise consumer behaviour analytics platform, titled "Experian Hitwise and Big Data".
3) Hakim Albasrawy (Tandemic) will deliver a lightning talk on an upcoming Hackweekend event that you will all find interesting.
Julian Lee graduated from NUS with a BSc (Hons) and MSc, and is now a Consultant with Revolution Analytics, who provide products and services around the R statistical computing package. Julian has considerable experience in bioinformatics, including a stint at Singapore's National Cancer Centre. He picked up R at his first job because there were insufficient Matlab licenses... and is now a full blooded R advocate!
Daniel Walters is Head of Development of the Experian Hitwise KL Global Development Center, where he oversees the development of products in use by Fortune 500 enterprises. This product line includes the Hitwise consumer behavior insights platform, as well as the Alchemy social media/online advertising platform.
