What we're about

We are a group of data scientists, software engineers, and business analysts passionate in applying advances in machine learning, predicative analytics, and natural language processing to solving *real world* problems. As yak shavers (http://www.hanselman.com/blog/YakShavingDefinedIllGetThatDoneAsSoonAsIShaveThisYak.aspx), we are technology and language agnostic, embracing whatever it takes to get the job done.

We hope to establish a vibrant data science community where we can learn from one another, explore topics of mutual interest, host hackathons, and perhaps even enter a kaggle competition together.
