SF Data Mining is looking forward to an exciting Peninsula event in downtown Palo Alto. We are fortunate to have a talk hosted by and at Ayasdi.
Ayasdi is very excited to host the first ever Palo Alto SF Data Mining Meetup at their headquarters.
During the Meetup, Jesse Paquette will teach you about how the ancient branch of mathematics called topology is being leveraged for big data analysis in the form of Topological Data Analysis (TDA). More specifically, you will learn why and how topology has been applied to big data in order to automatically surface hidden signals within high dimensional, high volume datasets.
Following Jesse, Muthu Alagappan, who was named to the 2013 Forbes 30 under 30 Sports list, will demo how he has leveraged Ayasdi Iris with TDA to reinvent and redefine the positions of basketball. His findings have led to him helping some of the top NBA teams in the nation, as well as landing him speaking opportunities at SXSW, TEDx, and MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
