Brian Granger from the IPython/Jupyter project and Peter Wang from Continuum Analytics will be speaking at this PyData NYC meetup. We will also have lightning talks and a short reception. We are lucky to have very high-profile speakers - they are in town for the PyData session at the Strata+Hadoop conference.
Registration ends Tuesday, 29 Sep, at 4pm. Time is very short to register, so please spread the word and register soon. We are meeting in a secured building again, so you will need to bring photo ID to get a security badge (please answer the RSVP questions giving your name as it appears on the photo ID).
The rough schedule is:
• 6:00pm - Doors open
• 6:30pm - Speakers
• Srikrishna Sridhar
• Brian Granger
• Peter Wang
• Lightning Talks
• 8:00pm - Reception
• 9:00pm - Meetup ends
Srikrishna Sridhar, Scaleable Time-Series Analysis using GraphLab Create. There are many instances of data used for machine learning tasks that have a timestamp feature which provides an implicit temporal ordering on the observations, e.g., log data, sensor data, market data. Scaling up time-series related machine learning applications requires more scalable data structures. In this talk, we apply scalable time series analysis in the energy sector on usage data from household appliances and smart homes. Krishna has a PhD in Computer Science from University of Wisconsin-Madison where he worked on high-performance software for large scale problems in mathematical optimization, and data analysis. His work has been used in applications such as health care, industrial production planning, and machine learning.
Brian Granger, Mystery Night at PyData. To keep things exciting, I will talk about a random topic related to Python and Data Science. This topic will likely be related to Project Jupyter, visualization or Data Science education. Brian is an Associate Professor of Physics and Data Science at Cal
Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. He is a leader of the
IPython project, co-founder of Project Jupyter and is an active
contributor to a number of other open source projects focused on data
science in Python. He is a board member of the NumFOCUS Foundation and
a faculty fellow of the Cal Poly Center for Innovation and
One last thing: we've noticed a number of people registering and taking available seats, but then not coming to the event. If you register and are unable to attend, please change your RSVP to a "No" so the seat is released to others who can come.
