The “joy” of order? Seriously? Isn’t “order” practically the number one ingredient of all things boring? Didn’t our parents work hard so we can live in these beautifully chaotic times where every thing is in constant flow and we can embrace in creative chaos? Well, yes. And no. Chaos and order are just two sides of the same coin and one needs the other so we can appreciate their very different qualities.

In this talk a I will try to give you a few insights as what order is in the first place, how to find it and what you can use it for. I’ll show you various techniques of data analysis, clustering, machine learning, image classification and data visualization many of which do not even require you to be a scientist or mathematician to have fun with. And no worries – this session will not be code-heavy but is rather supposed to direct your gaze to this fascinating field of data and hopefully inspire you to start your own explorations into that world.
