What we're about

Data Science Phoenix is for current and aspiring data science practitioners, data scientists, data miners, statisticians, data analysts, data engineers, data architects, data visualisers, data journalists, data consultants, academics, researchers, people from science and social sciences, and in general people directly involved in data projects. We welcome students and post-docts too.

We are aiming to meet monthly to discuss diverse topics in big data analytics, distributed data analytics, data mining, predictive analytics, applied machine learning (and subtopics such as classification, clustering, neural networks, graphical algorithms, information retrieval, search, computational learning theory, reinforcement learning, collaborative filtering etc.), statistical modeling, statistical computing, heuristics, massive text mining, natural language processing, large scale analytical paradigms, open data, and data visualization.

We will have industrial, academic, and government luminaries as speakers. This meetup will not just be about lectures (from introductory to advanced) and free food and drinks (with help from sponsors). We encourage lively discussion in order to promote professional development and continuous learning so that you can walk away with new ideas, concepts and tools to help you solve your hardest problems.

Fundamental Techniques of Data Science & Feedback Learning for ML Systems

**Please RSVP HERE also (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fundamental-techniques-of-data-science-feedback-learning-for-supervised-systems-tickets-56506080207)** Description: Fundamental Techniques of Data Science: This talk is intended for two groups of audiences: (a) those considering a career in data science, and (b) business executives, who want to learn about how data science can be used to solve their business problems and improve their business decision making. The talk will introduce the field of data science from both a business-oriented and a technical perspective, explaining how business problems can be converted into data problems can then be decomposed into a small set of canonical data science problems, including regression, classification, scoring, clustering, similarity matching, co-occurrence grouping, profiling, link prediction, and data reduction, for which well-known solutions exist. Several examples of these canonical data science techniques and their applications in solving various business use cases will be provided. Feedback Learning for Supervised Machine Learning Systems: This talk is intended for more advanced users of data science and concerns the concept of feedback learning and how it can be used to improve the performance of supervised machine learning systems through the interaction of the learning algorithms with human experts. Sampling approaches that are fundamental to the feedback process, including uncertainty sampling, diversity-based sampling, and misclassification-based sampling will be discussed.
