[The Vermont Complex Systems Center at the University of Vermont presented this talk on April 13, 2012, as part of its Complex Systems Spire Speaker Series.]

Hilary Mason discusses data science and how it's done at bitly, covering both the fundamental math and algorithmic tools they employ, as well as their philosophy behind gathering and analyzing big data.

Hilary Mason is the lead scientist at bit.ly, where she is finding sense in vast data sets. Her work involves both pure research and development of product-focused features. She is a former computer science professor with a background in machine learning and data mining, has published numerous academic papers, and regularly releases code on her personal site, www.hilarymason.com.

She is a co-founder of HackNY (hackny.org), a non-profit organization that connects talented student hackers from around the world with startups in NYC. Mason recently started the data science blog Dataists (dataists.com) and is a member of hacker collective NYC Resistor. She has discovered two new species, loves to bake cookies, and asks way too many questions.
