AB June Meetup: CO Flooding, Water Quality, and Factorization
Welcome to Analyze Boulder 62! Analyze Boulder is a community of data geeks who live, work, and play in Boulder, Colorado. The first Wednesday of every month, our members give fast, accessible, high-energy TED-style talks once a month on any data topic. Contact us (http://speakers.analyzeboulder.com/) if you want to present at a future event. We start with social time / beer from 6-6:30pm, followed by the live event, and then we stick around and chat over beers afterwards - please bring cash to contribute for beer. You can also join the event via our live stream (see below). Here's our speaker lineup for the evening: Jim Moffitt will take us on a visual tour of how the 2013 historic Colorado flood unfolded on Twitter. Timothy Salazar applies data science tools to water quality problems - specifically, identifying images of Benthic Macroinvertebrates (which can be used to gauge water quality/stream health) faster and more cheaply than taxonomists manually identifying specimens. Peter Wills discusses factorization machines, a model popular for classification of categorical data, using low-rank interaction terms to be efficiently trainable even for sparse data (i.e. not many interaction records). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu3G_93vh24
