Job Description

I am developing a mobile application with a machine learning capability. I am looking to work with someone familiar with writing learning algorithms into code (R or Octave) to act as a brainstorming partner as I build the algorithms and them write programs around them.

I have the data fields, variables, and desired outputs from the app defined, I just need someone with expertise to tranform that information
1) Into an algorithm
2) into a machine learning program that can make recommendations to the end user

This job will consist of real-time brainstorming sessions once or twice a week until completion. My app's infrastructure is written in Ruby on Rails, so I would be looking for an algorithm language that can be wrapped in Ruby (such as R or Octave)
