Using R for Data Mining Competitions

Dear GTA R group members,

I'm very pleased to announce the next GTA R user’s group meeting. Jonathan Lee will show us how to use R for challenging Data Mining Competitions.

Jon is currently a sessional lecturer and PhD candidate in statistics at the University of Western Ontario. His research interests are in the areas of parallel statistical computing, spatial statistics, machine learning, and data mining.

Venue kindly provided by my fellow co-organizer, Professor Murtaza Haider,  at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University.

The capacity for the room is about 60, so we’ll have to prioritize in order of sign-up for the meeting. There is no charge for this meeting.


When: Friday November 25, 2011 at 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Where: Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University
             55 Dundas Street West
             Lecture Hall, 9th floor, Room 3-129
             Toronto, ON M5G 2H1

    Although I do not have a close connection to the topic, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found to be informative and useful in the presentation. The subject was well presented by the speaker. All in all, an enjoyable couple of hours and worth the trip from London.

    I really enjoyed the presentation. I thought the brief analysis of winning methods was really interesting, but also enjoyed how he presented introductory material as well.
