Inaugural Meeting

University of Waterloo Data Science kicked off with our inaugural meeting this past Wednesday, October 26th, 2011. Five people came out and at least three more expressed interest in joining our bi-weekly discussions, starting next Tuesday, November 1st at 2:30 PM in the Stats Club Office M3 3109.

During discussions we’ll talk about anything that anyone found interesting in the past two weeks: this could be a new paper, an interesting technique, a useful tool, or feedback on a work in progress. Members are encouraged to bring something to every discussions: either something to help others (paper, technique, tool), or a question that would help them in whatever they’re working on.

If you are interested in being a part of this community, drop by at our next Tuesday’s meeting. If you are no longer in Waterloo or can’t make the meeting, worry not. We hope to summarize most meeting discussions and post them here on this blog. We won’t be posting about members’ projects that are work in progress, they will be shared once they are published!
