Local Case Studies in Analytics and Predictive Modeling

Presented by Ben Webster

Data Scientist & Statistician at NLP Logix


Hey Everybody! We are back for one last Meetup before the holidays descend upon us. I'm really excited about the case studies Ben and his team are going to share with us. Its fascinating to see Big Data in action and how its changing the face of business here in our very own community.

As always, there will be free food and drinks and a fun, party-like atmosphere with ping-pong and foosball.

There will also be book giveaways!

Be sure to RSVP, tell a friend, and make it out for this informative and fun meetup!

Topic Description: Ben and his team at NLP Logix have been doing some incredible things with data in the Jacksonville community. They are true evangelists of the transformative power of Data Science and are putting their money where their mouths are.

Ben will share case studies of how they have engaged with local businesses to take their data and uncover fascinating secrets that these businesses never knew were there. Their clients are blown away even by the basic analytical insights in their data, not to mention the amazing predictive power that it holds.

Ben will share the business problems, the data science strategy and methodology, the analytics, and the exciting results from working with these businesses.

Times: 

If you can make it out, please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

    I arrived at 6:45 PM ...

    THE FRONT DOOR TO THE BUILDING WAS LOCKED!!!!! I was really looking forward to this meeting.

    I live and work on the South side; does EVERYONE else work downtown ? I was stuck in traffic from 5:15pm on, one hour and a half!
