I got the chance to present at AWS Summit in NYC on 7/12! I’ve had several people ask me what the speech was about so I thought I’d throw together a few blog posts that walk through the talk. I’m going to break it up in to three posts: Part 1: My CIO Doesn’t Do […]
In this post I’ll cover creating the actual machine learning model to predict bets and how it worked for the fist slate of games. If you haven’t read the background on this project, I’d point you back to my first post in this series where I described the point of the holiday project. Creating the […]
If you’ve done any reading on AI/ML you’ve probably heard someone say that the real challenge is collecting and organizing the data. That discussion is usually about finding good data, but I can tell you that it’s also a bit tricky to get data that you have access to organized enough for ML algorithms to […]
Why do a Big Data Project over the Holiday? In 2021 the machine learning market was a little over $15B. That is projected to increase 10x between now and 2028. It’s the fastest growing area of technology (think mobile 10 years ago) and therefor it is top of mind for my clients. In addition, the […]
If you’ve met me for more than a few minutes you’ve heard me talk about my passion project, Leave the House Out of It (lthoi.com).

After a year of not doing very much with the project I’ve had the itch to make some upgrades. Before I did, I wanted to upgrade the CI/CD pipeline I use to manage the code.
One of my favorite experiences has always been going to Las Vegas on an NFL Sunday. Looking at all of the potential wagers, reading up on all of the games, talking with my friends about what they see, and placing a few bets while drinking that stale coffee at an abandoned Blackjack table is a […]
I’ve decided to start a bit of a series of blog posts called “Clever Idea”. I’ll use the space to talk about something I’m working on either in my hobby project (an app for picking Football games with your friends) or at work that I think is clever. The intent will partly be to share […]
