Our program for 2019 begins with an exciting hands-on workshop on blockchain data and analytics, led by Stavros Zervoudakis, a Chief Data Scientist who has 17 years of industry experience.

Stavros will review work that was completed recently on applying machine learning algorithms to solve a classification problem with blockchain addresses and smart contracts.

He will conduct a hands-on demonstration of how to query real blockchain data, train the model, and generate output from the model. He will discuss how solving this problem creates value in security-related analytics, user experience optimization and trend analysis.

Space is limited, so sign up early. We request that you cancel RSVP to give others your spot if you cannot make it.

This event is based on a prior meetup titled "Machine Learning algorithms for the classification of blockchain addresses", and is using data from the Blockchain data warehouse hosted by http://www.Bloxy.info , a lab provided by Bloqchain Science .

Bloxy.info is a source of open, reliable, verifiable and objective data about the blockchain. The data is directly extracted from the public blockchain node and processed to be applicable for data mining, information retrieval, graph analysis, machine learning and other well known computer technologies. The data is available as an open interface for any usage and querying by user.

Following Along on your Laptop

If you like to follow along, bring your laptop. You only need a browser as we will leverage cloud servers. In order to benefit, you should be comfortable with rudimentary coding and data analysis; no knowledge of blockchains is assumed.
