What we're about

This Research Methods and Data Science (RMDS) meetup group is devoted to make big data & AI useful, and to promote big data technologies. It is a meet-up group bringing together people from research methodology, data science, data professional services, AI and computing in the greater Los Angeles area.

The focus of the group is about utilizing big data & AI technologies to improve data analytics & research for social good, and to promote research methods and data science innovation. On a regular base, we run workshops on big data analytics that can be applied to model and visualize open data and other complicated big data sets. Also, we will organize special meetings to discuss special data science projects, as well as data science automation and augmentation.

This meetup is also a part of a global Research Methods and Data Science network at www.grmds.org .
