Anthony Khong



I am a data scientist working at Agoda, an innovative accommodation website that places a huge emphasis in machine learning algorithms. I have been using Python on a daily basis since 2013 as a freelance data scientist and algorithmic trader. I am also a functional programming enthusiast, and my experience mainly comes from writing Scala code in Agoda and using Haskell for scripting. I enjoy writing functional-style code in Python, and have been actively trying to marry the two for years. My other passion include high-performance computing, Bayesian statistics and Vim.

I have never spoken in a conference before. However, I have a number of public speaking experiences such as training in Agoda and giving undergraduate-level lectures in machine learning and economics. I have also been involved in a few pro-bono projects that required public speaking.
