Profile Information

Analyst, Software Developer, Other
Company: (acq. by GE)
Areas of Interest (Robotics, Software Architecture, Green Energy, Web 2.0, etc.):
I would like to see co-working solutions in small / transitory areas such as Kauai. I think there is an increasing number of global techies/entrepreneurs such as myself who find value in the serendipity of travel and short term workspaces and the fresh cross-disciplinary ideas that result from them.

I would also love to learn about other Hawaii based companies with core interests and business models using data science / machine learning / or big-data analytics. My background is data-science, software development, astronomy, physics, robotics, machine learning, etc...
Software Language Proficiencies / Interests:
C, Java, Javascript, Python, SQL, XML, Other
About Me:
Co-founder of and researcher at UC Berkeley where I combine astronomy with CS and statistics. My interests are in development and application of stats and machine learning algorithms to big datasets using parallel frameworks and innovative storage engines.

I live both in Berkeley and the north shore of Kauai.

Dan, are you still interested in coworking opportunities? I am trying to gauge the potential for establishing a coworking location on Oahu.

Dan, are you aware of anyone on Oahu who might be able to advise us on applying machine learning to time series data? Thanks, Nelson

Hi Dan. Yes, we work with timeseries data. Please send me an email if you're on Oahu and have time to meet. Thanks, Nelson

Thanks, Dan! We're in the middle of designing the icanology site -- It was great to get lists of mashups that people are doing all in one place.

Yes, Dan. Icanology is a project and a half. Before, it was
Are you related to Maui's Hugh/Jennifer/Lisa Starr or Jonathan Starr?
Keep in touch!

Good to meet you at the LUG meeting on Tuesday night. Are there any openings in your Astronomy group at Berkeley? I'd definitely be interested in scientific programming again and I have a pretty strong resume for it (MS in Computer Vision).

E komo mai Dan! We look forward to seeing you tonight at the Linux users group meeting. Truman Leung sometimes coordinates coworking groups in Honolulu.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. Happy coding!
