I put together a quick blog post last week on the Lumesis blog about unemployment. You can see it here. It’s a joy to play with some of the data on the platform: now that I’m more heavily involved in development I have more respect for the guys who built the platform. Doing the analysis is still tough though: I feel like there’s still more here I’m not getting. I need to find a better way to implement machine learning algos that will alert me to outliers in that set.
