PredictionIO - Introducing the first Scala-based open source prediction server

In the seminar, I will explain:

  • Why we create PredictionIO (http://www.prediction.io coming soon :-)
  • Why Scala is a perfect choice for data science project
  • An overview of our system architecture
  • How software developers can build predictive applications with Scala and PredictionIO

Simon Chan is a co-founder of TappingStone. He is one of the developers of PredictionIO - the to-be-released open source prediction server written in Scala. Starting off as a software engineer in Silicon Valley after graduating from university, Simon founded three startups in the past 10 years: a tutor matching site in California, which later pivoted to become a profitable tutoring center; a career-centered networking and matching site in Hong Kong; and a social news recommendation site in mainland China. He specializes in machine learning and recommendation technology, with a strong interest in social applications. Simon graduated from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a Computer Science degree. He is a PhD candidate in Machine Learning at University College London.

We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.
