Would like to meet local data science people, gain some deeper knowledge about the field and the latest methods, and see some interesting applications
I worked on large physics experiments for five years probing big data for hints of new phenomena, worked ~a year with genetic/biological/medical data at Vanderbilt, modeling disease-gene correlations, and spent several years in the publishing industry using data science to reinvent the domain in a more digital world
Python/C++, Statistics, Machine Learning, D3, High Performance Computing, and lots of other stuff
