Machine learning goings-on in Stockholm
The predictive analytics scene in Stockholm hasn’t been very vibrant, but at least we now have the Machine Learning Stockholm meetup group, which had its inaugural session hosted at Spotify on February 25 under the heading “Graph-parallel machine learning”. There was a short introduction to graph-centric computing paradigms and hands-on demos of GraphLab and Giraph.
The Stockholm R useR group has hosted good analytics-themed meetups from time to time.
This past Saturday (March 8) On Saturday (March 29), they organized will organize a hackathon with two tracks: one predictive modelling contest about predicting flat prices (always a timely theme in this town) and one “R for beginners” track.
Finally, the Stockholm-based Watty are looking for a head of machine learning development (or maybe several machine learning engineers; see ad) to lead a team that will diagnose the energy use of buildings and work to minimize energy waste.
