Tommy J.


Presenter (July 2013)

Member since:

November 12, 2012

What is your level of experience with Statistics, Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning and/or Data Mining?

I'd describe myself as relatively advanced. I've been building statistical models and doing econometric forecasting since 2008. I've been doing work in machine learning since 2012

What tools and technologies do you use?

R is been my platform of choice, with extensions in C++. However, I have a fair amount of experience in several languages.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

I believe that associating with other professionals in this field will serve to educate and motivate me.


I am a statistician, mathematician, or data scientist - depending on the problem or the audience. I am also a Marine Corps veteran.

What Tommy J. is saying about this Meetup Group

The presentations, to me, highlight the diversity of skill sets required for good data science. For example, I am a stats and algorithms guy. These presentations were much more about data storage and management, an absolutely critical--though often under appreciated--side of the discipline. Much of it was over my head, but I appreciate the exposure to these topics because it helps me understand what's happening upstream from my work.
