May R Meetup: Modeling for Money

Are you excited about the NATO summit? That will be nothing compared to our explosive May Meet-up. Join us at Jak's Tap on Wednesday, May 30. As always, there will be beer and pizza courtesy of Revolution Analytics.

Anthony Goldbloom is the founder and CEO of Kaggle, the web site for predictive modeling competitions. His presentation is "Making Data Science a Sport". He'll explain how data scientists use R and other tools to win the Kaggle prize money.

Eric Knell of Credit Suisse is healthy again and ready tell us about the software tools and techniques they use. His team is writing large-scale analytics in R. Who knows. After some beers, maybe he'll spill the beans on a few trading secrets, too.

RSVP today. We hope to see you there.

    Completely awesome to hear the CEO of Kaggle's views on Kaggle, analytics, and competition. Of course, it's the regular crowd that keeps me coming back for more.

    I'm sorry I missed the first part... I hope to see those slides online.

    Great talks. Thanks to Eric Knell for sharing his experience with developing full fledged software with R. Quite impressive. Anthony Goldbloom's anecdotes were very entertaining and the info on Kaggle was useful.

    The first presentation was completely ununderstandable and useless. The second one was somewhat interesting but not really useful.

    Thanks for organizing. The talks were interesting. Now we just need to put together a Kaggle team to earn some pizza money...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
