Using F# To Solve Real World Problems

A session at Strange Loop 2010

So you have seen a few sessions on F# that introduce the concept. Maybe you are now excited about functional programming - or maybe you need a little more convincing to really see how it is used in the "real world". Come to this session, and see examples of useful F# applications that can potentially have real impact on humanity. In the session, we will cover the following topics:

Using F# based Monte-Carlo simulation to avoid another global financial crisis
Using F# based Natural Language Processing to solve the problem of "incivility on the Internet"
As we go through these examples, you will see how F# is particularly useful for solving these types of problems that involve simulation and categorization.
