Today I am delighted to be presenting at the BrightTalk Analytics Summit. I will be presenting on some new open-source tools that are available for doing analytics. In particular, I will be focusing on Python Scikit-Learn, PyStats, Orange, Julia and Octave.

I hope to help people answer the questions:

1. Why is there a need for new analytical tools?

2. What are the potential alternatives?

3. What are some of the pro’s and con’s of each alternative?

4. Demonstrate some specific use-cases for each tool

5. Provide a roadmap to get started using these new tools

My full presentation will be available here.
