LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Volt Technical Resources, a staffing business of Volt Information Sciences, Inc., today announced that Dr. James McCaffrey, Associate Vice President, will present new research at the 2012 DevIntersection Conference to be held December 9-12 in Las Vegas. Dr. McCaffrey will deliver a special session on December 11, entitled “Easy Naive Bayes Predictions for Developers.”
“But there is a big gap between the mathematical theory and the ability to implement practical software systems that work with Big Data. Software systems that use Naive Bayes inference have a wide range of potential applications such as advanced predictive analytics for health systems and analyses of financial systems.”
McCaffrey's presentation will highlight new software development techniques for Bayesian inference – mathematical techniques based on probability that can be used for predictive analytics. “Bayesian inference has been studied for many years in academia,” commented McCaffrey. “But there is a big gap between the mathematical theory and the ability to implement practical software systems that work with Big Data. Software systems that use Naive Bayes inference have a wide range of potential applications such as advanced predictive analytics for health systems and analyses of financial systems.”
The DevIntersection Conference is attended by advanced software systems developers, scientific programmers, Web developers, and database professionals. Visit http://www.devintersection.com/.
McCaffrey has more than 30 years of experience in research and software engineering expertise. He manages technical training for software engineers working at the Microsoft Redmond, WA campus. Dr. McCaffrey is also the Senior Contributing Editor for Microsoft’s MSDN Magazine, Microsoft’s technical journal for the software development community.
