Talk 1: 35 mins
Title: Bokeh basics and some advanced features
Speaker: Dmitri Stepanov

It is hard to overestimate the importance of data visualisation. Most of the introductory courses/tutorials on data analysis or example notebooks employ libraries such as matplotlib . But how about something more interactive? What if you want to zoom in or get some additional information on a data point by hovering over it on a plot? I will introduce Bokeh library which is packed with tools for such interactive visualisations in browsers. I will briefly cover the basics and focus on slightly more advanced features such as UI controls like buttons and sliders and embedding Bokeh plots into web applications.

Speaker Bio:
Dmitri comes originally from the pharmaceutical domain. Quickly realising that his interests lay instead in computer/data science, he started a project in machine learning. Since three years he is a PhD student at the Freie Universität Berlin working on a machine learning approach to predict human skin penetration by chemical compounds.

Talk 2: 35 mins
