Based in Cambridge Implementing solutions around data sciences also implies many different skills (distributed systems, visualization, numerical computing), so there is always a lot to learn.
In a former life, I did my PhD in online statistical algorithms applied to speech detection. On the practical side, I have started what would become the scikits learn package for machine learning in python, and I am also a core contributor to Numpy/Scipy, the basis of most machine learning tools in python.

My name is David Cournapeau. I enjoy maths and programming, so machine learning and data sciences are a good way to do both. Currently working for Enthought, a company specialized in tools for data analysis
