    Hannah Aizenman

  • Intro on Using Python for Big Data

    An overview of the Python scientific computing stack, with a focus on working with very large datasets. I'll try to introduce the most widely used libraries for scientific computing, Numpy and Scipy, discuss techniques for using them with big data, and touch on some of the machine learning techniques (and possibly libraries) for reducing large data into something manageable. Then I'll go over how to make some of the most common data visualization tasks (plotting a time-series or mapped data using matplotlib) dynamic and web-based.

    More Information:

    About Hannah Aizenman:
