Speaker Bio & Abstract
BiographyI've been solving problems for my own enjoyment and profit since 2005 when I quit my last day job (as a software developer). The main areas I like to work on are Computational Geometry and NLP. Some of the problems I've tackled over the years in these application domains have become successful companies with exactly one employee - me.AbstractGeoparsing, geocoding, geofencing and the science of keeping it simpleLocation context is a key component of a wide range of business intelligence applications. It depends on several processes, such as geoparsing, geocoding and geofencing; each of them is currently a fertile ground for open problems. I show a simple solution requiring only minimal computing resources which solves several such problems.
