Regression Analysis; The Assimilation Project
Regression analysis is a simple, powerful and extensible algorithm that represents an accessible entry point into machine learning for mere humans. This talk will cover what regression analysis is, some tools for implementing it to make predictions and categorizations, and show several examples of using regression analysis using the Google Prediction API and the numpy/scipy suite of tools.

The Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring aimed at risk management and mitigation. Discovery finds systems, services, dependencies, including services you aren’t monitoring and systems you’ve forgotten about. About 30% of all outside security breaches come through forgotten systems. Discovery is continuous and has zero-network-footprint. Monitoring is extremely scalable due to a radically distributed architecture. Discovery informs monitoring - simplifying configuration and maintenance.
The Assimilation Project software provides extremely scalable easy-to-configure monitoring, and creates a continually up to date, detailed configuration management database based on the Neo4j graph database. This talk will give an overview of the Assimilation project - some use cases, its capabilities, current status and future plans
