Practical inference: Use Cases from Energy Generation and the Web

  • Aug 27, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This meetup is a joint event with Big Data Analytics (Sydney) and YOW! We now have three speakers lined up to continue the journey into a world of Big Data Analytics. We are very fortunate to have this month's event co-sponsored by YOW!NICTA and DiUS, so there will be an ample supply of beer and pizza! Hope that you can all join us for what is shaping up to be another great meetup.

Charles Blaxland, DiUS Computing: Charles will walk through how a new data science implementation for a financial services organisation used parallel processing and cloud computing to massively speed up the time taken to crunch 600 billion calculations from 208 days to just 8.5 hours.

Jared McKee, Energex Australia: Jared joins us from Brisbane, he is going to present some work that he has done within Energex to spatially simulate electricity demand using machine learning.

Luke Metcalfe, Web Entrepreneur: Luke has developed a system to identify which web properties are likely to be under the same control using web site fingerprinting techniques and inference algorithms.

    Glad everyone enjoyed the talks. We hope to get lots more real world use cases and experiences shared over the coming months. If there is anyone who would like to share a use case, please contact me. As always ... looking for sponsors to keep the beer and pizza flowing! Thanks for everyone coming and making it an awesome night - the speakers - to sponsors - the audience! Hard to get enough chairs for everyone - as we are continually growing! Arrive early next time :)

    Particularly interested in the first talk re: Economic capital risk, pity that it was so fixed. Really did need more chairs/more space to seat people as a large number of people had to stand at the back and not able to hear everything. Pretty good meetup overall and interesting to hear the tools that people use for the challenges presented.

    Really interesting talks tonight. Thanks to all the speakers for sharing real world stories. Particularly enjoyed the Energex talk, especially the story of the "quiet rooms" cluster :)

    Guy's I can't make it, had something come up last minute. Just thought I'd free up a spot for someone.... Sounds like a good one!

    I'm lecturing a new data science course, which clashes on the same evening unfortunately.
