  • AMA About Why I Prefer Python to My Other Computer Languages

    Metis Community Slack

    NOTE: This is a live "Ask Me Anything" within the Metis Community Slack channel. To join, apply at the link below. http://bit.ly/MetisCommunitySlack Once you're in, join the #general channel and ask away! Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. Created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991, Python's design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its notable use of significant whitespace. Its language constructs and object-oriented approach aims to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects. Hear from Metis NYC based Senior Data Scientist Vinny Senguttuvan about why he prefers the Python language He'll also compare Python to his other languages such as; Visual Basic, Java, C, C++, JavaScript, Matlab, etc. Bring your questions about different programming languages and be ready for a discussion about different computer programming languages. Vinny, a Metis data science instructor, views data as a facet of perception. Vinny comes to Metis after leading a team of Data Scientists at High 5 Games. Prior to that he taught Machine Learning at General Assembly and built tools for Animators and Effects Artists at Blue Sky Studios (the company that made Ice Age, Rio and The Peanuts Movie). He has a Masters in Computational Engineering and another in Creative Writing. He enjoys the nexus of mathematics, computer programming, human perception and arts. Over the past three years, Vinny has been knee-deep in large distributed data -- aggregating, building recommendation systems, measuring popularity and predicting Lifetime Value. In that time, he also finished a first draft of his novel. An avid programmer, Vinny has won various programming contests including the Regional ACM Collegiate Programming Contest. He has taught at the University of Miami and has given talks and presentations at various colleges and conferences.

  • Livestream: Intro to Linear Algebra for Data Science

    Metis Livestream

    This event will be Livestreamed here: https://livestream.com/accounts/23925505/events/8707282 Before there was machine learning, there was linear algebra. And if you’d like to be proficient in data science, a basic understanding of linear algebra is essential. If you’ve ever wished to dive deeper into the math of your favorite algorithms, or if you’ve been meaning to crack open that college linear algebra book for a refresher but didn’t know where to start, this is the event for you! We’ll be going at a fairly quick clip through the fundamentals of linear algebra. The intention is not so much to learn all the linear algebra you’d ever need for data science, but rather to give you a solid footing so that you can kickstart your own studies. We’ll be starting with the basics and will assume no prior knowledge in linear algebra. We’ll spend about 90 minutes going through a lecture, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. No technical background is required and you don’t need to bring a laptop (unless you’d like one to take notes on). You might want to bring a notebook and pencil to take notes. There will be time before and after to mingle and ask questions or for recommendations on your personal math journey. Are you thinking about applying to the Metis Data Science Bootcamp? Check out the Metis Admissions Prep here: https://www.thisismetis.com/admissions-prep Lara Kattan is a Senior Data Scientist at Metis. Sis constantly awe struck by how math and statistical models can so reasonably approximate the messy real world, and loves to share her passion for the theory. Lara comes to Metis from McKinsey, where she worked with financial institutions on risk modeling. Prior to settling into the practical world of consulting, Lara received a master's from the University of Chicago, where she had the privilege of thinking about problems with no real-world implications. There her passion for unstructured thinking and novel problem solving were nurtured and she took the lessons learned with her into conference rooms and PowerPoint decks. The statistical and mathematical elegance of data science are what animate her the most, but she gets her biggest joy from demystifying the rigorous mathematics for all audiences. If forced to snap out of her mathematical reveries, she's probably doing yoga, riding a bike, or drinking too much coffee.

  • Ask Me Anything About the Math Needed for Data Science

    Metis Community Slack

    NOTE: This is a live "Ask Me Anything" within the Metis Community Slack channel. To join, apply at the link below. http://bit.ly/MetisCommunitySlack Once you're in, join the #general channel and ask away! Learning the theoretical background for data science or machine learning can be a daunting experience as it involves multiple fields of mathematics. Metis Senior Data Scientist Kimberly Fessel holds a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in math biology at the Ohio State University. In this AMA Kim will answer your questions about the mathematics needed to start your journey into the world of data science. Below is a quick overview of the math needed for data science. Linear Algebra Used in machine learning (& deep learning) to understand how algorithms work under the hood. Basically, it’s all about vector/matrix/tensor operations, no black magic is involved! Calculus Used in machine learning (&deep learning) to formulate the functions used to train algorithms to reach their objective, known by loss/cost/objective functions. Statistics and Probability Used in data science to analyze and visualize data, in order to discover (infer) helpful insights. Kimberly uses her background in applied math to discover data's what, why, and how. Kimberly joins Metis from MRM//McCann, a leading digital advertising agency, where she focused on helping clients understand their customers by leveraging unstructured data with modern NLP techniques. She is passionate about data storytelling and the power of compelling data visualizations to challenge pre-conceived assumptions. Kimberly's enthusiasm for teaching comes from her days as an academic. She holds a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in math biology at the Ohio State University. In her spare time, Kimberly likes to stay active and particularly enjoys swing dancing, rollerblading, and jogging with her dog.
