Working groups sponsored by NULab are organized by faculty and graduate students and are open to all members of the Northeastern community and the Boston area. These groups are open to people working at any skill level—from entry level to expert. For information about participating in a group, please see the links below.

Working Group for Big Data, Analytics, and Statistics
Hosted by the NUlab, Christoph Riedl is holding a weekly un-conference, hackathon-style workshop meeting to talk about big data, data analytics, and statistics. There are (usually) no presentations and no talk but plenty of application and live coding. If you are interested in big data, if you want to share you data analytics work, show a visualization, demo your super-efficient massively parallel implementation of some fancy analysis, or if you simply want to learn about what data analytics projects folks at Northeastern are working on, come and join us. For more information and for a schedule of upcoming meetings, visit the group’s blog.
