Analyze Boulder is a community of 2,600 data geeks who live, work, and play in Boulder, Colorado. Our members give fast, accessible, high-energy TED-style talks once a month on any data topic. Our lineup for our Boulder Startup Week Edition: Gary McClellan will present an analysis of recidivism data and bail decisions based on an algorithm showing (a) the algorithm isn't very good and (b) that it is dramatically biased against African-Americans. Janelle Shane will highlight results of neural network experiments gone delightfully wrong. Using silly datasets as examples, she'll talk about some ways that algorithms fail. Land Belenky will be presenting 'Art Guesser', an ensemble of convolutional neural networks trained to identify the style of famous works of art. We will start with social time / beer from 6-6:20pm, followed by the live event, and then we stick around and chat over beers afterwards.

I've long had an interest in developing interactive web-based applets not for computing statistics but rather for teaching statistics. My current research interest is using signal detection theory to evaluate algorithms... Read More →

I run a machine learning humor blog called aiweirdness.com where I train neural networks, a type of machine learning algorithm, to write unintentional humor as they struggle to imitate human datasets. Talk to me about the time I brought chocolate horseradish brownies to an Analyze... Read More →
