Precon #3: Fundamentals of Microsoft Data Science
Friday, November 8, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Fundamentals of Microsoft Data Science
Microsoft provides enterprise-level data mining technology, ranging from supporting individual analysts through scalable server solutions. This one-day seminar provides an overview of advanced Microsoft-based analytics within the context of the applied scientific method. The key technologies demonstrated will be SQL Server 2012 (Analysis Services) and Azure-based HDInsight (Hadoop and Mahout). Some guidance will also be provided for the R and Julia languages. The course instructor brings his past experience in not only consulting but also from teaching statistics at the undergraduate and graduate level (Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Phoenix). The overall goal is to explain data mining in a scientifically accurate way while making the technology practically accessible and even fun.
