Hi there! I'm an epidemiologist and informaticist blazing inroads in BI in health care from a scientific perspective. Your intro is interesting! Hope we can connect at an event - I anticipate an exciting convo on many topics.
Dennis, just an FYI that VoltDB is hosting an event on Jan 23rd with featured speaker, Mike Stonebraker at hack/reduce in Cambridge. If you're interested, you can register through this link: http://www.meetup.com/The-New-England...
This is your chance to prototype your ideas before going to VCs or for seed funding.
We all have dream applications that need machine learning and predictive analytics. We can hack those app. using available machine learning APIs (from Microsoft, Google, BigML, BPA EyeQ, and so on). No need to learn those complicated math or gymnastics of matrices.
This is also your way to find a co-founder, good developers, and some good feedback. By the way, investors are also welcome; coding is good for our brain, and it keeps Alzheimer away!
We are the Big-data web, data driven web, and Web^n!
About the Meet-ups :: We meet on Mondays or some Saturdays. We usually meet up in the evening on Mondays, start with a little merry-making and chatting, then coding, and hang out some more. Venues vary, so stay tuned.
