PYPTUG Monthly meeting "Seeking Exotics" May 30th

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (May 30th 2017) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the ideal language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the perfect tool that no expert would do without. Monthly meetings are in addition to our project nights.


Meeting will start at 6:00pm.

We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, PYPTUG activities and members projects, then on to News from the community.

Main Talk: "Seeking Exotics"

by Francois Dion, Data Scientist, Inmar Inc.


Medicare payments, UPC code descriptions, fertility rate and fires. All of it is data, some of which is erroneous and some of which is anomalous. Seeking Exotics introduces the audience to the world of outliers and anomaly detection through the use of metrics, visualizations and open source machine learning tools.

Lightning talks! 

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
