This LA Open Data and Data Science meetup group is devoted to make open data useful, and to discuss big data technologies. It is a meet-up group bringing together people from data science, civic services, and computing in the greater Los Angeles area.
The focus of the group is to utilize big data technologies to improve the analytics of open data for social good, and to promote data science education and innovation. We plan to run workshops on big data analytics that can be applied to model and visualize open data and other complicated big data sets. Also, we will organize special meetings to discuss special open data and big data science projects.
