En résumé

PhD graduated (data mining) in 2010, then, I moved to the industry working on different sectors (stock market, financial institution, Transport, Insurance) as a software developer (essentially .Net). In 2016, I moved back to Machine learning and big data, and now I’m working as an experienced Data Analyst.
In my free time I love to ride : snowboard, bodyboard, longboard ... defenetly x-board man ;)

  • CEREMADE & LAMSADE - PhD candidate (Data mining)

    2006 - 2010 Scale up an existing data analysis process called symbolic data analysis. The particularity of this model analysis processing is to compute data basin on complex (non atomic) data.
    • The first obstacle was to construct an algebra, called Symbolic Data Analysis (SDA), able to express complex queries for data processing dealing with simple data types (string, int, floats, etc.) and complex one (interval, histogram, probabilistic distribution, vector, etc.). After establishing the state of the art, the relational and nested algebra inspired me to construct a new algebra (SDA) in order to be able to transcript some data mining algorithms into queries in SDA.
    • The second obstacle was the implementation of SDA considering technical constraints such as data persistency, data access, data volume, algebraic language for writing queries, query evaluation, data visualization.
    A prototype was developed using the CLR of SQL SERVER 2005/2008 (deployment hosts) in order to
    + Store data in SQL SERVER using User-Defined Types (UDT).
    + Compute in SQL SERVER complex aggregates using User-Defined Aggregates (UDA).
    + Compute in SQL SERVER complex operations using User-Defined Functions (UDF).
    + Express algebraic queries using XML syntax against an XSD validator.
    + Implement in SQL SERVER the algebraic operators for query evaluation using C# + Store procedures.
    + A WPF app was developed to send queries for evaluation and display the results (summarized table) in charts (Visifire).
    All the implementations were validated with unit tests using NUnit, for the different types, function and queries (data mining algorithms DSTAT, k-means).
    • The third and last obstacle was to apply this approach on some real use cases:
    + Enhance the prediction of electricity consumption forecast based on prediction models.
    + Classifying art images of a museum consortium based on RGB histograms.
