Data Science Colloquium with Alexander Kagoshima


On Monday, 28th January 2014, Alexander Kagoshima from Pivotal Germany will give a talk with the topic "A Data Science Field Report" in the computer science colloquium. The presentation will take place at 14.00 c.t. in the seminar room 2.101. The abstract of the talk is as follows:
"Pivotal runs a Data Science practice to support numerous customers across the globe in using the Pivotal technology stack by developing innovative approaches to leverage their data assets. The Pivotal Data Science team comes from a lot of different backgrounds and applies a wide variety of mathematical methods, including but not limited to stochastic modelling, operations research and machine learning to generate actionable data-driven insights. A key point of this team's work is the application of analytical algorithms to Big Data, which makes it absolutely necessary to use scalable methods and run algorithms in a parallelized fashion. In this talk, Alexander Kagoshima, the first member of the Pivotal EMEA Data Science team, will give a field report as to what this type of work means in practice. He will give Pivotal's definition of Data Science, discuss Pivotal's data storing and processing technologies and how they help the Data Scientist in their day-to-day work and explain the life cycle of a Data Science customer engagement. Additionally, there will be a detailed discussion of a selected Data Science project that was performed for a customer in Germany."

Mentoring of a school intern

Currently, we have a school intern in our group. Her name is Christina Eilers. She will stay in our group for two weeks. She is supervised by Verena Honsel. The internship takes place in the context of a normal school education. The topics will be in the field of data analytics and social networks.
