Our meetup group consists of people coming from companies, PhD/Master students. We are interested in having a community of data-scientists in Grenoble so as to learn and work on interesting projects.
Why is it interesting? Well, do you know: -- Given the data about passengers, the computer algorithms are able to predict if a passenger would have survived Titanic crash with 99% accuracy. -- soon your car insurance costs would be computed automatically with your past history of driving. -- the movie suggestions on Netflix are all personalized for you based on your past ratings. -- When you apply for a loan, the algorithms in bank give you a credit rating, depending upon your past account history. -- GPS navigator analyzes the driving routes of humans, in order to generate time saving "human-like" suggestions for routes.
So if you are fascinated by data-science, machine learning, data-visualizations or maths, feel free to drop by for the next meet-up. Even if you have no idea about the topics, but you have desire to learn, do drop by!
