Analyzing User Behavior at Plenty of Fish: Data Science in the Wild

How is Machine Learning and Data Science actually used in the real-world?

Tommy Levi tells you how, and goes into the details of how he has been using them.

Tommy will walk through the opening steps (and missteps) he took in starting to analyze user behavior on the Plenty of Fish site. He will discuss data preparation and wrangling, parallel computing and initial exploration and feature analysis. The goal of the talk is not to focus on any specific algorithms, but to show the steps taken for a real world analysis on large, often messy data and how to get actionable, useful results from such an analysis.

    It was great, and very informative. Thank you very much.
    Is there is way to get the presentation PPT?

      I've talked to Tommy about this. He has to check with legal, to OK it.

    Really useful presentation. I learned a lot. Especially, pointed out lots of detail from collecting data to how to analyze it with algorithm. Thanks for giving a nice talk.

    Great Presentation, with detailed information on some techniques, However, the results could not be shown

    Best presentation I've ever seen around the daily intricacies of so called 'Big Data'. Not chit chat, just getting hands dirty with real problems and real solutions.

    Thanks Tommy and Charles/Don for putting that together.

      Looks like there's spots let in the "Machine Learning" variant but not here :-) [see you there!...?]

    Anybody tried using Machine Learning to define links between OWL-based Math ontologies and instances of math in MathML?
