Ian Ozsvald & Bart Baddeley will demo four areas of data science using Python. The goal is to introduce a number of these areas that may not be familiar to more traditional Python developers, this could open into an extended future session if there's interest.
The talk will cover:
• Using the IPython Notebook and Scikit-learn to begin solving the Kaggle Titanic machine learning problem
• Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning for social media analysis using scikit-learn
• Using Pandas and QGIS to solve the Future Cities London hackweekend challenge
• High Performance Python using profiling techniques, Cython and new tools like Numba to calculate at C-like speeds
