The Big Data Exploratorium: Data Mining, from Patents to Memes

A session at Open Source Bridge 2011

Wednesday 22nd June, 2011

2:30pm to 3:15pm (PST)

Dive deep into the suffocating postmodern ocean of data and come out alive on this interactive tour of low-hanging-fruit data mining tools. Learn to make R graphs both pretty and pretty informative; crunch numbers quickly in high level languages, like a boss; even get your Google on with some maps and reduces. It is widely known: Data scientists have all the fun, so join us!

As part of the talk, we plan to make available a data set of historical Reddit front pages, to plumb the very depths of nerd humor evolution.
