A few interesting databases and R

SciDB is an open source database that organizes data in n-dimensional arrays. Interesting SciDB features include parallel processing, distributed storage, ACID transactions, and parallel time series and linear algebra operations. SciDB powers a number of big data projects including the NIH 1000 genomes browser.

Redis is an open source, fast networked key/value database that supports interesting structured values like hash tables, queues, sorted sets and more. Redis is incredibly versatile and popular.

Dplyr extends the highly regarded split/apply/combine idea of plyr to data frames and related objects in external databases.

Bryan Lewis is the maintainer of the scidb and rredis packages, and is starting to work on integration between SciDB and dplyr. He'll show examples of all three projects. Bryan is a mathematician and chief data scientist for SciDB.

    I would love to see the presentation on May 21st, but I have other commitments. Any chance anyone's going to record this?

      If the speaker agrees, I can tape this as long as the battery in my camera holds up! (I didn't bring my charger to work today). We will see.

      Thanks. I've decided I'll settle for half a loaf, and attend the beginning of tonight's talk. I hope noone minds that I'll have to leave around 7.
