How does someone from Indiana meet up with Australian co-founders for an exciting new internet startup? What's it like to work across time zones and accents while building a brand new company? What's different between Indiana and California? What's data science and how will machine learning change the world?
Join us for a casual discussion with Jeff Moser, CTO of Kaggle, as he answers these questions and more.
Kaggle is a startup that is "making data science a sport" by running competitions on a wide range of tough problems like improving healthcare, locating dark matter in the universe, predicting shopper activity, and finding beautiful pictures. Kaggle wants to create a meritocracy where the best data scientists can earn more than top athletes.
As always, we'll start with pizza and socializing (Social Pizza™) at 5:30pm and some short intro stuff around 6.
