Our Data & Analytics Director Wendy Parker is co-teaching a Data Mining course at the University of Washington. She recently invited Lucas Parker of Visible Technologies to speak to the class regarding how they use data mining.

We greatly appreciated Lucas’ discussion of his experience putting models to use and some of the interesting findings he made along the way.
