Learn about the challenges associated with modeling uncertainty in computational systems and how programming models are being used to improve systems, such as GPS. Kathryn McKinley, principal researcher, Microsoft Research, and Todd Mytkowicz, researcher, Microsoft Research, share their expertise in this interview recorded during Faculty Summit 2015.
Let's dive together into the the world of Star Wars! We'll use the force of F# to process publicly available datasets relating to the Star Wars movies and we'll find out who's the most important character in the stories and why were the prequels so unsuccessful. On the way, you'll see why F# is a great language for data science - from preprocessing the data to visualizing them - and you'll also learn how you can use similar data processing pipelines to get interesting insights from your own data.
