I have a degree in Mathematics, but now am working and continuing my education in the Computer Science field.
I've always been heavily into hockey statistics and trivia, but in the last few years I've become more interested in using all available data to be able to predict future results better than anyone has been able to so far.
About a year and a half ago my interest was at its peak and I wrote a program to retrieve all event and shift data from NHL.com so I could have all available raw data available for mining. It worked but was not very robust, and the algorithms I was using in my data mining were inefficient.
These days I have a number of other projects that must take precedence, so I am sure I won't be able to contribute as much in terms of substance as I would like, but I will definitely be reading. Maybe this will help spark some motivation again.
