Jake VanderPlas: Mr. Most Insightful


Just call him Mr. Most Insightful. Jake VanderPlas is one of five winners of the 2015 Pronto Data Challenge, taking the prize for Most Insightful. The award was determined by judges “based on which entry they think reveals the most, or provides the most intelligent and surprising learnings from the trip data.” Jake, Senior Data Scientist and Director of Research, Physical Sciences at the eScience Institute, used “machine learning and data mining techniques to provide analytical insight into the collection and individual behaviors of Pronto.”

Congrats, Jake!
