May C++ Meetup: Statistical programming with C++

  • May 14, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Eric Schles will present on statistical programming with C++. Location details will be provided in early May. Depending on the location, we may up the attendance limit then.


Abstract: Statistics in C++ can be useful because of the efficiency of the language.  Come take a guided tour of the fundamental constructs:  Starting with an introduction to distributions including how to visualize them in C++.  Next point statistics like means and standard deviations.  Then onto Ordinary least squares and visualization of OLS in data.  Last but not least an introduction to programming decision trees and neural networks.


About Eric: Eric Schles is a Graduate student and Researcher at Polytechnic Institute of New York University.  Has master's and undergraduate degrees in Economics and Mathematics.  For his masters work he specialized in Econometrics, Financial Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Computational Econometrics, Abstract Algebra and Topology.  His research focuses on implementing large systems in order to capture data for economic and political interpretation.  He has worked as a Researcher at the Stern School of business, at the Economics Department of SUNY Buffalo and Cybersecurity research at NYU-Poly. In his professional life he has been a consulting Entrepreneur, helping launch over 20 early stage start ups and consulted as an economist/statistician.  He also lectures part time for the ACM club at Courant weekly.

      Gary, I agree with your points. So we know there are serious interest in this topic --- Hope there are more seminars along the line with deeper insights and proven production level experience. But don't forget Eric is from academia and he said the audience is general public. Personally I work with C++ everyday, and I use classic statistic tools and proven methods to analysis my huge amount of data, and I had been wondering how the new weapons from the data science or big data field can empower me. Eric did show me a nice starting point.

      This is a community group and we should support members that volunteer to present with constructive feedback. The quality of talks depends on members of the community, so please consider volunteering or recommending a speaker or topic to the organizers. This is your meetup, so please help us give you content that you want. Get in touch with Andrew or me for more info on getting involved. Thanks.

    I found it very valuable to see what level of competence is considered presentable these days.

    Hi Eric, this sounds great. Will you also say a word about the best stats packages in C++ out there? Especially ones that are free and can be included in proprietary code, such as there are. :)

      Yes, I will! I'll be demoing waffles

    Hi All -

    Two reminders about the meetup tomorrow:

    1) This meetup is at the NEW 10gen offices, at 229 West 43rd St, 5th Floor. You will need to check in at the front desk of the building and show ID to come up to the 5th floor. Your name will only be on the list if you are RSVP'ed or waitlisted.

    2) If you RSVP'ed but you will not be able to attend, please update your status ASAP so that people on the wait list have an opportunity to attend. It is also very helpful for us so that we have an accurate estimate of how many people will be attending.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.

    yes, want to be there.

    Sure will! I will be covering a lot. However the advanced concepts (towards the end of the lecture) will probably be over your head. Linear regression is pretty easy.

    Is this an advanced lecture? I don't have much experience in C++. Will I be able to get anything out of this? Thanks.
