After the last meetup in July, the Data Science Spain community will meet once again in Barcelona on Wednesday, October 29, with the Pre-Strata Conference meeting, an official promotional event for the largest big data conference in the world, taking place November 19-21 in Barcelona.
The fifth meetup will be held together with GEMLeB and RugBcn and will be sponsored by O’Reilly Strata, which will be raffling books from their publishing house. In addition, one entry ticket will be raffled among all of the community members of Data Science Spain and another one among those participants who have given a presentation in either RugBcn or GEMLeB throughout the year 2014.
The Pre-Strata Conference will begin at 19h and will consist of three parts:
– Omar López: Director of Big Data & Data Science at Synergic Partners. His presentation will focus on data science case studies “Predictive analysis as an agent of change and innovation.”
– Aleix Ruiz de Villa: Scientific developer at Transport Simulation Systems (TSS) will give a presentation on Package Caret and Machine Learning.
– Jordi Puigdellivol: Data Scientist at Synergic Partners, who will speak on Data Visualization through Tableau Public, a tool for telling stories and exploring your data easily and dynamically, offering truly in-depth development.
