I would like to meet and learn from industry professionals who share my passion for data science.
The Machine Learning (ML) class taught by Andrew Ng. on Coursera introduced me to data science. Since then, I took more classes related to Data Science, read books and papers and written Python implementations of some of the latest ML algorithms. I also compete on Kaggle on the side, in a competition to predict the auction sales price of bulldozers, I currently rank 12th out of 427 data scientist from all over the globe.
R, Python, Scikit-Learn, NumPy, MSSQL, Excel can come in handy. I use Matplotlib, d3.js, and Tableau for visualization.
I am a web app developer with strong interest in machine learning. Aside from work, I compete on international data science competitions online. I would like to learn about opportunities here in town.
