This year once again I was lucky to be part of the BPDM (Broadening Participation in Data Mining) team (http://www.dataminingshop.com/) and I had a chance to go once again to the ACM SIGKDD (KDD for short) conference in data mining, this year held in San Francisco. More information about the conference at http://www.kdd.org.
It was a packed schedule, filled with multiple keynote speakers, panels, paper presentations, poster sessions, and of course, meeting new people.
Thanks to the people at Zynga, we also spent a day at their headquarters getting a few additional talks organized by BPDM.
All in all, great fun, great talks, and great memories.
