Distributed Analysis of the 2016 World Chess Championship

January 19, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us Thursday, January 19th to hear from Daniel Whitenack, Data Scientist and Lead Developer Advocate at Pachyderm. He’ll analyze and visualize chess game data from the recent 2016 chess championship, and will use distributed data pipelines, obscure chess engines, and a variety of data science tooling to get the job done. In the end, you’ll gain some per game and championship insights along with some intuition about each of the players’ strengths and weaknesses.

Event Schedule: 
6:30 – 7:00: Arrive, enjoy food & drinks
7:00 – 7:30: Daniel presents
7:30 – 8:00: Q&A + networking
