I'm familiar with the current classifications of "Big Data" and some of the technology (Hadoop/Pig) that makes working with this data feasible.
Being exposed to different algorithms, theories or techniques; or new and interesting applications of them.
Mathematics, philosophy, science... pretty much anything that is intellectually engaging.
Ask me after a few drinks for a real answer.
Meeting other locals who share some similar interests.
I'm a pure mathematician turned data scientist.
