EuroSciPy 2013 write-up

The conference is over, tomorrow I’m sticking around to Sprint on scikit-learn. As last year it has been a lot of fun to catch up with colleagues out here in Brussels. Here’s Logilab’s write-up. Yesterday I spoke on Building an Open Source Data Science company. Topics included how companies benefit from open sourcing their tools, […]

Some Natural Language Processing and ML Papers

After I spoke at DataScienceLondon in June I was given a set of paper references by a couple of people (the bulk were by Levente Török) – thanks to all. They’re listed below. Along the same lines I have one machine learning paper aimed at beginners to recommend (“A Few Useful Things to Know about […]

Thoughts from a month’s backpacking honeymoon

I’m publishing this on the hoof, right now we’re in Istanbul near the end of our honeymoon back home. Here are some app-travelling notes (for our Nexus 4 Androids). Google Translate offers Offline dictionaries for all the European languages, each is 150mb. We downloaded new ones before each country hop. Generally they were very useful, […]

Visualising London, Brighton and the UK using Geo-Tweets

Recently I’ve been grabbing Tweets some some natural language processing analysis (in Python using NetworkX and NLTK) – see this PyCon and PyData conversation analysis. Using the London dataset (visualised in the PyData post) I wondered if the geo-tagged tweets would give a good-looking map of London. It turns out that it does: You can […]

Map/Reduce (Disco) on millions of tweets

Whilst working on data sciencey problems for AdaptiveLab I’m becoming more involved in simple visualisations for proof-of-concepts for clients. This ties in nicely with my PyCon Parallel Computing tutorial with Minesh. I’ve been prototyping a Disco map/reduce tutorial (part 2 for PyCon) using tweets collected during the life of SocialTies during 2011-2012. Using 11,645,331 tweets […]

Lean Processes in StartupChile (short talk this morning)

I gave a short talk this morning with Ryan Lou on the Lean Processes that a startup can use. For me I looked back on the start of ShowMeDo in 2005 (and now) and how we iterated using email, google groups, surveys and lots of discovery by talking to users. I then looked at how […]

PyCon 2012 notes from the end

PyCon 2012 is just coming to a close. There were over 2,200 people here and too many talks to choose between. It was a bloody fine conference. Meeting so many of the Names of the Python world was rather grand, teaching High Performance Computing and getting pats on the back for the creation of ShowMeDo […]

The presentation is below, I’ve also linked to some of the videos below. A.I. in the Real World – Sussex Uni lecture March 2011 View more presentations from […]

Selling ProCasts through

A couple of weeks ago I sold, the screencasting business I built over the last two years. Some of you know that I moved away from the business back at Christmas and left it idle (a rather silly thing to do), here are some notes on how I sold it and how you could […]
