RVA Data Hackers is a community of programmers who meet regularly to develop skills and learn about the tools and techniques of Big Data. We discuss how to find, organize, understand and serve data sets large and small. We'll cover anything related to 'big data' -- machine learning, artificial intelligence and architectures to scale Big Data for the Internet. If you're a programmer interested in machine learning algorithms and managing big data, this group is for you. Topics vary from basic concepts to demonstrations of real-world implementations and everything in between. Our mission is to foster a local community of experienced, practicing experts. We're here to have fun, share and learn about an exciting field of computer science.
