In this meetup we will discuss the tools, methods and technologies used by many startups and entereprises to analyse large scale data (big data), obtain predictive and actionable insight, generate business value from data, and exploit business opportunities from data products. We'll have data scientists talking about topics like: data analytics, distributed data analytics, data mining, machine learning, scalable data analytics, predictive analytic, statistical computing, applied statistics, R language, data visualisation, data science opportunities & challenges, data science learning & training...

We'll avoid boring, theoretical, or hard-core presentations with an aim to have interesting, amusing, practical talks showcasing data science applications and data scientists work And we will have beer and pizza too :-)
