Datacratic at Big Data Week Montreal 2015

Datacratic was proud to participate in Big Data Week Montreal last month: we demo'ed our new Machine Learning Database and sponsored a Data Science Award at the Hackathon.

The winners of the Data Science award were a team that did an analysis of a million tweets about feminism. The team members were Zafarali Ahmed, Jerome Boisvert-Chouinard, Dave Gurnsey, Nancy Lin, Reda Lotfi and David Taylor. Congratulations to the whole team!
