for the win

We have a professional development budget here at Big Lake Data. As such, I recently completed a graduate course in data mining at Stanford University. The best part of the course was competing as a team with two other working-professionals on a predictive modeling contest sponsored by Kaggle. We programmed everything in R. And for a guy like me, who hacked my way into R, collaborating with a couple of wicked-smart computer scientists was a revelation.

We won. You can read the hoary details of how we did it from the Kaggle winners’ blog. No cash prize, but substantial bragging rights awarded . . . and claimed.

Predictive modeling? Other types of analytics? Yes, we can help you with that. Get in touch.
