Clojure for Data Science: an Overview

Below are slides from a talk given to the Bristol Clojurians on April 21st 2015.

The talk was in two parts, each around an hour, and in each I attempted to give a practical overview of several key techniques presented in Clojure for Data Science, including linear & logistic regression and k-means clustering. I also gave a brief demonstration of visualization with Quil and of writing a Hadoop job with Parkour to make use of the Mahout machine learning library.
