Welcome to Analyze Boulder 36! We're so thrilled to be hosting a special Boulder Startup Week edition of AB for a FOURTH year. We've rounded up some fantastic presentations for the event:
Theresa Becker presents a web-based visualization of co-mutation data to assist researchers and clinicians in understanding the complex mutational dynamic of cancer, with potential future application in personalized medicine.
Damian Wandler highlights some sneaky ways bias can end up in well-intentioned AB tests, how machine learning can be the nemesis of causal inference, and some methods to address these issues.
Aman Ahuja will talk about applications of data science in the non-profit sector: how they can be different from popular views of data science, what we can all learn from these projects, and why it’s important that we do so.
Erich Wellinger will show us how, what, and when media sources have covered various topics in the 2016 Presidential Election, analyzed using the web-scraping and Natural Language Processing techniques.
As always, we'll be pouring great beer from Vindication Brewing Company (http://vindicationbrewing.com/) for your enjoyment before, during, and after the presentations.
If you would like to attend remotely (no RSVP needed), please see below.
Please contact us (http://speakers.analyzeboulder.com/) if you want to give a 5-minute flash talk on any data-related subject!
