William Cox, Distil's Data Scientist, is a former electrical engineer turned data scientist. He finds the term “data janitor” a bit more realistic. Formerly he worked in the defense industry building systems to track and destroy torpedoes, classify radar signatures, and using lasers to communicate underwater. He now uses his not-so-super powers to detect and track bad bots using machine learning and predictive modeling techniques.
Building a Streaming Log Processing and Machine Learning System at Distil
We decided to upgrade the Distil Machine Learning system to a distributed Kafka and Storm based computing system in our data center. View why and how we did it here.
