Here are the slides of the talk I gave at the Apache Hadoop Get Together yesterday. The session was hosted at ImmobilienScout24 right next to the Ostbahnhof in Berlin.
I’ve been to a number of such meetings now which are somewhere in the intersection between academia and industry, and I have to say, I like the way such meetings initiate exchange between researchers and practitioners quite much. It seems there is quite some interest in data science and big data on both sides of the table. Companies are interested in the latest developments and researchers are very much interested in the demands of real-world applications.
So if you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty with some real technical challenges besides all that nice theory, you should definitely check whether such meetings also exist in your town and check them out!
The talk was filmed, check Isabel Drost’s blog for updates.
