Introduction to Trainspotting

September 6th, 2016 Here at Silicon Valley Data Science, we have a slight obsession with the Caltrain. Our interest stems from the fact that half of our employees rely on the Caltrain to get to work each day. We also want to give back to the community, and we love when we can do that with data. In addition to helping clients build robust data systems or use data to solve business challenges, we like to work on R&D projects to explore technologies and experiment with new algorithms, hypotheses, and ideas. We previously analyzed delays using Caltrain’s real-time API to improve arrival predictions, and we have modeled the sounds of passing trains to tell them apart. In this post we’ll start looking at the nuts and bolts of making our Caltrain work…
