Python Ireland April meetup

Jonathan Sedar will be giving a talk this month. Event is open to everyone, and it's free. We'll be having a few pints afterwards (8PM) at O'Neills Pub across the road on Pearse Street.

Speaker: Jonathan Sedar (@jonsedar)

Title: Text mining: Finding hidden information in CRM data

Description: A client in the energy sector wanted to create predictive behavioural models of business customers at the company level, but the CRM data was messy, often containing several sub-accounts for each business, without any grouping identifiers, and so aggregation was impossible. In this talk I describe a short project where we used text mining, a handful of unsupervised learning techniques, and pragmatic use of human skill under time & budgetary constraints, to identify the true company level structures in the CRM data.

Venue thanks to The Science GalleryThe Science Gallery is a world first. A new type of venue where today's white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out and you can have your say. A place where ideas meet and opinions collide. --

We would also like to thank Intercom for sponsoring our group.
