How will you identify fake reports?. I think it could be a good idea, but the map can be intentionally modified by random people as I see it.

It is difficult as we do not ask for any personal information of the reporter (except email address) and all reports are filed anonymously. At present, we are validating the genuineness of the reporter through email verification. I understand that won't ensure complete genuineness but the idea is not to focus on individual reports. An area will be tagged high-risk only when sufficient numbers of cases of a particular crime are filed on the platform. Even if there are a few fake entries, the threat will definitely be real and the idea is to bring that forward. Moreover, we are doing manual moderation and in future we plan to add crowd-moderation that can help in identifying fake reports to some extent .

SEEKING WORK - Remote (Buenos Aires, Argentina based) I've building apps with Python for over 4 years, mainly with Django as framework, but I also worked with: tornado server, rabbitmq, postgresql, mysql, mongodb, redis, elasticsearch and neo4j. I've some experience working with frontend techonologies too, some javascript/jquery and a bit of CSS.

I'm slowly transitioning to ML/NLP technologies. I enjoy dealing with data and finding patterns in it. I've been playing a bit with R and with some great python libraries: pandas, scikit-learn and nltk.

If you're interested, my e-mail is in the profile.

Yes, I'm thinking about consulting for non-profits in order to know what the problems are and what can I do to help. It's difficult to come up with ideas when you don't really know the people and her struggles.

I saw the thread created about it here in hnews, but they're only ycombinator startups and there's little/none description about what they do.

Maybe parsing the crunchbase site I can create the spreadsheet myself.

As far as I know, crunchbase doesn't provide a spreasheet where you can quickly look, filter, group companies and startups.

I began the mlclass from coursera but I'd like a more advanced approach.

I found some courses(I don't know if there are more):

Andrew Ng Stanford CS229: http://cs229.stanford.edu/info.html

Caltech(the one from the OP link): http://work.caltech.edu/telecourse.html

Tom Mitchell Carnegie Mellon: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~tom/10701_sp11/

I'm considering following the Tom Mitchell course as it seems to go deeper into the details, also because it uses a pretty cool bibliography.

What do you think, am I making the right choice?

I'm in that situation, my life will be probably easier in another country but I'll keep on struggling here.

Sadly, If I were from another country, I wouldn't even consider coming here for business.

Sorry if I'm just ignoring something(I'm not from the USA) but isn't it possible to say you were freelancing or something similar to cover the gap?.
