For the first virtual event of the New York Dataiku user group@pmasiphelps  (Lead Data Scientist at Dataiku) presented an anomaly detection project in Dataiku DSS, based on the data in The Washington Post’s The Opioid Files.

Anomaly detection is a step in data mining that identifies data points, events, and/or observations that deviate from a dataset's normal behavior. Anomalous data can indicate critical incidents, such as a technical glitch, or potential opportunities, for instance a change in consumer behavior.

Be sure to join the New York user group to be informed of upcoming events and chat with New York based DSS users!
