Data Visualization and Machine Learning

Google’s Deep Dream and Neural Nets are all the rage these days.  “Data Scientist” is a legitimate occupation.  But what are these things and what are some of the basic tools of the trade?  Dan Van Boxel from “Dan Does Data” will demonstrate and guide you through some simple data visualization tools using an Ipython notebook in SageMathCloud.  Then, we’ll explore what “neural networks” are at a high level, and some software like Google’s “TensorFlow” for implementing them.

Bring your own data set if you want it examined, or help others visualize their own!

If you can’t attend in person, we’ll be live streaming at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qJMvSLKaOU.
