Tools for Functional Data Science
Data science is full of hard problems, but the complex algorithms and mathematics rank among the least of these. Bad data abounds, and it's easy to make a small mistake that can ruin days or even weeks of work. In this talk you'll see how ideas and tools from functional programming save me time and effort, and how they might be helpful for you as well.
Richard Minerich tirelessly leads Bayard Rock toward the application of cutting edge research to anti-money laundering and fraud while using typed functional programming whenever possible. As an F# MVP he's been running events, speaking, and writing for over six years. You can often find him at one of his events, the monthly NYC F# User Group and the yearly NYC F# Tutorials. He also helps run the NY Haskell Users Group.
