DAMAPDX: Data Mining for Data Modelers (Formulating business problems as data mining problems)
200 SW Market Street

The DAMA Portland Chapter is dedicated to delivering thought provoking, data-centric presentations that will make you more successful in your job

This will be a brief introduction to some of the important concepts that arise in data mining in general and classification analysis in particular. The focus in this presentation will be helping attendees to develop their ability to frame business problems as data mining problems.

Through a demonstration driven presentation format, attendees will be exposed to a variety of data mining topics. Throughout the demo, attention will be paid to points of intersection with traditional data modeler work products including the data dictionary and dimensional data model. I will also leave you with a variety of links and references for additional study on your own.

Particular topics that will be addressed:

  • Formulating business problems as data mining problems
  • Supervised Learning
  • Classification methods including Decision Tree and Logistic Regression
  • Model Validation
  • No math!

Registration Required

Please register at the DAMA PDX site (continental breakfast served)

Framing Business Problems as Data Mining Problems - Portland DAMA Jan 21st
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Greetings Fellow Lovers of Data-

Start the year off learning about Data Mining. Join me at DAMA Portland's January chapter meeting to learn how to frame Business Problems as Data Mining problems with Asoka Diggs, a Data Scientist at Intel.

This will be a brief introduction to some of the important concepts that arise in data mining in general and classification analysis in particular. The focus in this presentation will be helping attendees to develop their ability to frame business problems as data mining problems, to understand some of the terminology and mental models prevalent in data mining, and to being able to recognize situations where data mining might apply.

Through a demonstration driven presentation format, attendees will be exposed to a variety of data mining topics. Throughout the demo, attention will be paid to points of intersection with traditional data modeler work products including the data dictionary and dimensional data model. There will also be a variety of links and references for additional study on your own.

Particular topics that will be addressed:

  • Formulating business problems as data mining problems
  • Supervised Learning
  • Classification methods including Decision Tree and Logistic Regression
  • Model Validation
  • No math!

Speaker:

Asoka Diggs is a Data Scientist with Intel Corp. in Hillsboro, OR. He has 15 years of experience in a variety of data management disciplines, including database administration, ER modeling, ETL development, and data architecture. He recently completed his MS Predictive Analytics from Northwestern University and is now a practicing Data Scientist. It turns out that there IS something even more fun than ER modeling, and he now spends his work time practicing his new analytic modeling skills, and teaching others how to participate and contribute to predictive analytic projects.

Semantic Data Mining and Deep Learning Datasets @DAMAPDX
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Dr. Dejing Dou leads the Advanced Integration and Mining (AIM) Lab at the University of Oregon.

In this talk, we focus on the use of formal (Semantic Web) ontologies in two data mining and deep learning tasks, using health datasets as the data domain. We will show how Semantic association mining allowed discovery of indirect (hidden) associations within the datasets (in this case, among diseases and drugs within electronic health records). We will also show how Ontology-based deep learning was used to predict human physical activities within a health social network.

Portland Data Science Group - Designing Intelligence

Automation is the future of computing and conversational interfaces are the future of human-computer interactions. However, creating these systems requires us to reverse engineer some of the most fundamental aspects of life, which can be difficult and overwhelming — especially if you don’t know where to start. 


 Designing Intelligence will: 
• Help the you understand what’s happening in the artificial intelligence space and where it’s been. 
• Explain why you’ll be making one of these systems sooner than you think. 
• Teach you how to create the products that will thrive in the age of automation. 
• Give you language to help you sell your ideas to your team and bring your dreams to life. This is one talk you’ll regret missing.

Guest Speaker Joe Toscano will be presenting - @realjoet.

Formerly an Experience Designer for R/GA, Joe worked as a consultant for Google, where he and his team oversaw the Google product ecosystem and helped Google take products to market. This meant he and his team had to understand how each product strategically fit within the Google ecosystem now, how each product would evolve, over time, and how the decisions being made by individual teams would affect Google’s larger business goals, as a whole. Understanding this allowed him and his team to be confident that the decisions they were making would strategically move Google’s business forward.

Joe has since left his job at R/GA to pursue writing his book, Designing Intelligence. The book is being written to help people understand the current state of automation, where it's been and where it's going, how to design products that will thrive in the age of automation, and what role we, as technical talent, play in creating an inclusive future through automation. He hopes to help create ethical automation designers who not only understand best practices of making these systems but also understand the impact they'll be making on the world, through automation.

Note the earlier-than-normal start time of 6p.
