Understanding the World with F#
The F# Software Foundation has been working hard to make F# the best tool for doing data science, not just on the .NET and Mono platforms. This video shows the recently announced F# libraries for interactive data analysis, for accessing data from a variety of sources including REST based services, CSV files and online data sources like WorldBank and Freebase.
In three demos, you'll learn how to acquire and understand data with F#. You'll see how to analyze the survival rate of Titanic passengers, how to correlate different indicators about countries in the world and how to link US debt data with information about US presidents and visualize the results.
