    I've been working in analytics for over 8 years. I am interested in learning about new and upcoming tech in analytics.

    Hello, I work in a field called Electronic Discovery, and we're tasked with using predictive analytics to identify documents in a legal environment that are responsive to a subpoena. I was wondering if there are any classes that anyone knows of that could help me widen my knowledge.

    Hi all,

    We're students who just graduated from UPenn; we're building a wearable device that tracks if you're getting drowsy and helps you stay alert, and we're now on Kickstarter! It's great for driving or monotonous tasks at work. Check it out at this link and help support us to make Vigo a reality!­ Hope to see you all soon at one of the upcoming meetups

    Can we start to develop an Algorithm for Google Glass data collected by potentially hundreds of millions of users?

    @Brian: Look at Vowpal Wabbit, that runs in parallel and on top of Hadoop (using a very non-standard infrastructure on top of MapReduce).

  • Brian D.

    I would like to see a debate on whether Hadoop is necessary or even possible on some ML algorithms. Take Logistic Regression. The Stanford paper linked to above suggests running a matrix inversion in a reducer. With 10 MM features that becomes quite a task. Mahout uses SGD for logistic regression, which is an online algorithm that isn't really run in parallel.

    INterested and excited about it.

    I'm really excited about the next event. Where will it be located? Did you try the SunGuard Headquarters on Madison Avenue?

    Hi everyone! I work at and we could probably host this Meetup given 6-8 weeks advance notice. Feel free to reach me at kbierce(at)operasolutions-dotcom... I look forward to meeting you all!

    There is an event next week on using Mahout (Hadoop) to predict future events:

    Some links to get this party started, perhaps:

    Some python examples of Hadoop use in Machine Learning -

    Stanford paper on utilizing the mapReduce framework as a paradigm for mutlticore machine-learning -

    Alpha java lib. hoping to provide elegant abstractions for mapreduce M.Learning

    Working on a highly interactive analytics app that will already use MapReduce - will one day be curious to see what kinds of data can be mined from all the user mouse activity that's been catalogued.

    I work with Hadoop, but not so much with machine learning. As such, this seems like a good way to broaden my horizons.
