Last evening I was privileged to speak at the London Business Analytics Meetup. The talk was titled "An Introduction to Predictive Analytics". I promised the audience that due to my lack of slides I'd summarise my comments into a reference blog with some interesting links and resources to refer to.
Finding the time and clarity of thought to write is an ongoing personal battle that I have with myself. After much procrastination and a few months late I've taken some time out from the trade mission I'm on here in Chicago, taken advantage of the free wifi in my hotel lobby, ordered a pot of truly terrible tea and turned my current playlist right up in an attempt to get this article over the line. So here goes.
I watched a show on Tuesday evening. The kind of show that I really love in a nerdy way. Not one about sex, or drugs, or violence, or murder mystery (although I do enjoy those as well), but, a real, proper, honest-to-god BBC2 documentary (please note, other deities are also available).
