Let's do some more data engineering talks, networking and knowledge sharing! We don't have any talks booked in yet, so let me know if you've got something to talk about. Talks can run anywhere from 5-30 mins. Let me know if you think you've got something to talk about - all skill levels welcome to present something - just about everything is new to someone!
We will also have time after the talks for a community noticeboard where folks will have around 60 seconds to pitch their wares - if you've got an awesome data job going or you are available to fill an awesome job or even that you've found a great open source tool that we should all be contributing to, this will be the time to let us know!
Will Gauvin: Astronomy and Machine Learning - Classifying Galaxy Morphologies
The field of astronomy has a huge big data problem to the point that professional astronomers have turned to machine learning techniques and using citizen science projects, like Galaxy Zoo, to build training sets. In this meetup presentation, we will scratch just the surface of Astronomy and Machine Learning by looking at galaxy morphology classifications using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey data.
