Suresh Kalathur Talks About Data Mining At Shri Gurusthan, Northboro
On the cold and dreary day of Saturday, January 17th, Shri Gurusthan, a division of Dwarkamai, conducted yet another Guru Virtues presentation that brightened the day of many devotee’s. This time around the topic was a technology presentation on Data Mining, a useful concept that has been broadly used in various computing technologies. The captivating presentation by Dr. Suresh Kalathur - an assistant professor of computer science and director of analytics programs at Boston University Metropolitan College. - consisted of numerous aspects of data mining from what it is to finding jobs in the particular field. http://cisonline.bu.edu/
The two hour seminar touched upon many of the significant components of data mining and analytics, such as concepts and techniques of data mining, comparing various data mining techniques, and understanding the differences between OLTP, OLAP, and data mining. Also, in depth demonstrations on practical applications were given with the use of open source tools, such as WEKA, R, and BIRT.
However, the seminar was not all about learning the concepts of data mining. Dr. Kalathur also gave the participants a few options for exploring job opportunities in the data mining field. In the current market situation, there is a high contingency of acquiring a data mining position. Data mining is a broad term; therefore, one must choose which branch of the data mining they desire to work in. It can be either business analytics, creative analytics or data analytics.
The outcome of this seminar was a great success. Many people of all ages, backgrounds and experiences participated in this seminar. Some have been in the IT field for as long as 30 years, while others are still in high school looking for a stable career path. The majority of the participants are well versed in mainframe technology and trying to migrate into data mining.
Guru Virtues, the latest technology based open source project organization by Dwarkamai Inc, has been conducting presentations at the various locations of the Dwarkamai foot print, such as Bellerica, Canton, Northborough, Chicago, Denver, Virginia, and Allentown. The presentations are not only about technology, but about any domain knowledge, which enhance the devotee’s lives.
