Dan’s BIO:
Dan has almost 30 years of experience working with large data sets. Starting with the unusual work of analyzing potential jury pools in the 1980s, Dan also did some of the first PC based voter registration analytics in the Chicago area, including putting the first complete list of registered voters on a PC (as hard as that is to imagine today a 50-megabyte hard drive on DOS systems was staggering). Interested in almost anything new and technical, he worked at The Chicago Board of Trade. He taught himself BASIC to write algorithms while working as an Arbitrager in financial futures. After the military, Dan moved to San Francisco. He worked with several small companies and startups designing and implementing some of the first PC-based fax systems (who cares now!), enterprise accounting software, and early middleware connections using the early 3GL/4GL languages. Always perusing the technical edge cases, Dan worked for InfoBright, a Column store Database startup in the US and EMEA, at Lingotek, an In-Q-Tel funded company working in large data set translations and big data analytics companies like Datameer and his current position as a Chief Data Scientist for Open Source in the IBM Channels organization. Dan’s current just for fun Project is working to create an app that will record and analyze bird songs and provide the user with information on the bird and the specifics of the current song.
