I am a Senior Technical Training Instructor at Splunk. I teach people how to make big data useable, valuable, and accessible. I teach classes on exploratory data analysis, querying, processing and visualizing data, statistical modeling, data science and machine learning.
I'm interested in cognitive science, machine learning, and linguistics. You can read my senior thesis on the role of morphology in vector space semantics. Since then, I've been focusing on more general NLP techniques.
This was a project that scrapes the list for music shows and plots the points on a map. I found myself loading the list all the time but sometimes forgetting exactly where particular venues were located. Its really just a tool for myself, but maybe some other people will have fun using it as well. It uses YQL to scrape the data and mapbox and leaflet to do the mapping. You can check out code open sourced here.
you follow some of my other smaller projects on my blog or github.
