I have been interested in Big Data for decades given my all my Graduate degrees in Data and Analytics, Operations Research, IT and Systems Engineering. I have worked on very large scale data projects in Fraud Detection, Compliance Improvement involving billions of transactions and Terabytes of data using latest generation of analytical tools. My interest is in the latest Predictive Analytics tools such as SPSS Modeler, RapidMiner, Tableau, Enterprise Miner and latest generation Hadoop Ecosystem tools and techniques.
Latest Data Science technologies and tools and how they are applied in different domains to solve business problems.
I think having a key focal point of having Industry speakers describing a project, tool or methodology in Data Science will be great. There should also be a Social hour or networking opportunity for members to interact and discuss their ideas and experience.
I more interested in learning and participating but can help organize or present topics of interest as needed.
I have been part of the NIST Working Group helping articluate the Big Data Standards, Architecture and Taxonomy as well as working with various key companies such as AWS, IBM and sveral others in solving specific Big Data problems.
I am Technical Director and Senior Data Scientist with ICF International at NASDAQ Management Consulting Company with 15-20 years of experience in Predictive Analytics and Data Science with various Federal agencies using analytical tools & techniques
