Community

Silicon Valley has developed an extraordinary culture of idea and information sharing. As an integral member of the community, we collaborate with the Silicon Valley Financial Services Cloud to host and participate in tech meetups where new ideas are freely shared and discussed. Recent meetup activity has included:

  • A presentation of Bayesian networks using R and Hadoop, by the Hortonworks Chief Scientist
  • A discussion group including Hal Varian, DJ Patil, Chris Re, Marti Hearst, and others, on the need for education about data science
  • A discussion on the tax accounting of Bitcoin transactions
  • A discussion on automating cloud security, led by noted author Ben Whaley
