Crash the Party at All Analytics …
I have been calling us data geeks – but turns out our new name is actually the more respectable data scientist. Wonder if we get white lab coats with our names over the pocket? That would be so cool. You know you want one also!
Anyway, check out AllAnalytics.Com – there is a community of folks talking about big data, data analysis, and even trends for the future. They wrote an article about the book – shown below – but there is so much more to the site.
Great Place to Get Ideas
All Analytics is a great resource for SAS users – they discuss a lot of the topics that we work with everyday. I love learning about all the different ways us data scientists are solving problems. Today they are discussing how those personals – Find Your Mate sites work. I say you cannot apply analytics to love … but maybe I’m a romantic scientist. Tell me if you were able to calculate your perfect mate!
