Ancho - Monte Carlo (and other) simulations

On August 6th, Tony Becker will give a talk about his project called "Ancho." Ancho is a system for modeling uncertainties, using what you *do* know to better understand what you *don't* know. In more precise terms, it is a framework for running Monte Carlo and other dynamic, stochastic simulations, written mostly in Python, using Cassandra as its data store, and designed to be run on temporary clusters so you can get answers in minutes rather than days. The plan is that it will eventually be usable by people who don't know how all the underlying pieces work.

Tony will do a basic demo, as well as look at some use cases, and the reasons behind various technology choices.

Visitors to will find some writing about the project, but not much published code. Tony is participating in Julython and this is hoping for a lot of "talk-driven development" to occur.

    Just looking for a place to start coding. Perhaps enjoy my Pi.

    At the STL Machine Learning group's meeting last night, I promised to bring some traditional fermented beverages to the meetup on 8/6. Please RSVP to ensure that I bring enough.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
