I've previously talked a bit about predictive analytics, the post is here.
The amount of data nowadays is changing our daily lives, from individuals to business organizations to politics. From mining data, interpreting data, decision making, and managing it, what's beyond the hype?
DataGotham is a two-day event (today and tomorrow) organized by New York City's data community that will bring together professionals from finance, fashion, education and startups to the Fortune 500.
It features numbers of big shots and companies, including Etsy, Foursquare, Tumblr, LivingSocial, NYU Stern, Knewton, Kickstarter etc. The data scientists from these companies/institutes are going to share their experiences and strategies in coping with the Big Data.
A complete speakers list can be found here.
Live stream begins on Friday, September 14th at 8:45 AM EDT. But it's just right downtown, maybe we can just go check it out and ask questions :)
