Upcoming talks planned in 2015 include an introduction to Hadoop, the challenges of running an analytics centre of excellence in a large organisation, building models in Excel and data visualisation.
The London Business Analytics Group is a community data and analytics interest group. All meetings are free of charge and open to all. We started in July 2014. Previous talks have included data visualisation, exotic patterns in data, big data in personalised medicine, building data science teams, R and predictive analytics.
Meetings usually start at 6:30pm. The talk and Q&A last for one hour maximum and there is some time for drinks, chat and networking afterwards. We meet about once a month on a weekday evening at a central London venue.
