Data Science Meetup, May

Hi,

Let's meet on the 27th!

 

Agenda:

Data visualization as part of the art scene.

How data visualization can become art?What is more important, visually astonishing results, exploring new methods of visualizing big amount of data, or just simply choosing an outstanding subject?Daniel Feles is going to explore these questions trough examples of works from all around the world.

Augmented reality

Making an API from scratch is one of the easiest task, but the information gathering and data organisation is a much more complex challenge. Data are dirty and need to be clean and we have to determine the relationships and hierarchies between them. We have created an API that uses many different sources and I will show you how to use it.

The science of social networks.

Social platforms are becoming more and more open and transparent, each day their users share hundreds of gigabytes of data publicly. Twitter's active users author about half a billion public tweets a day, the majority of which containing links, images, or other data. This unprecedented wealth of real-time data provides opportunities for researchers and businesses to gain precise quantitative insights into the dynamics of human communication. Someone's age, gender, interests, intelligence, afluence, influence but even political views and sexual orientation can be accurately predicted from data collected on Facebook or Twitter. In my talk I will provide an overview of interesting recent research in this space, and also talk about how PeerIndex use this data to power influence marketing applications.

    Want to do a PhD with us, or intern with us, or work with us?

    Needless to say, we are always looking for outstanding engineers and data scientists to join our team. A few positions are advertised at http://blog.peerindex.com/careers If none of the advertised roles fit you, or if you want to do a short term internship with us, we would like to hear from you.

    If you can't decide wether to do a PhD or to work at a startup, I have good news: we are inviting applicants to a PhD studentship in Machine Learning jointly with University College London, please see bit.ly/PI_PhD or send me an email for further info.

    Thanks everyone for coming yesterday and for asking lots of questions. Also thanks for the organisers and Prezi for the amazing venue. If anyone wants to follow up, or just to connect me, don't hesitate to write an email to [masked],
    or find me on twitter: @fhuszar,
    or quora: www.quora.com/inFERENCe,

    I don't think that this API stuff are connected with computer vision, but I'm really interested on what have they done at Mito. Actually If somebody interested on real AR, feel free to ask me during the meetup because thats my focus in my final thesis.
