It’s hard to believe that KDD2008 was the first KDD I’ve attended in seven years. It was striking how much has changed in that time, and that was one of the primary reasons I attended this past year–to see for myself if the reports I’ve heard are true. Sure enough, they are.These reports, primarily from colleagues in industry, were that KDD didn’t have anything they could “take home and use”.
