After a successful initial data science meet-up two months ago, iHub Research’s Data Science Lab is welcoming you to the second data science meet-up this Friday 11th July ,2014 at the iHub Research space second floor Bishop Magua Building from 5 pm to 7 pm. Speakers for the event will be Stephen Mwega presenting his dissertation Text Disambiguation that explores auto-correcting misspelt SMS messages, and Michael Hoover from Once Acre Fund who will talk about using data analytics to make better decisions on loaning farmers.
The conversations around data science in Kenya have really come alive over the past year; we know this because we’ve had them with several of you separately. We think it would be interesting to provide a space for awesome people like you to meet each other, get to know what data science projects are going on and create new opportunities in this space. At the core of iHub’s mission is to support start-ups, surface information and connect people. What better way to do this than to host you at our space once every month to share ideas in an informal setting, with food and drink :).
