Paul Murrell: Is Image Everything?

R-core member Paul Murrell will give the keynote presentation. Venue kindly provided by the awesome Socialize folks in SOMA central.

We'll meet at 6:30PM for networking and refreshments, and the main program will begin at 7PM.

Is image() Everything?
Paul Murrell 

Native support for rendering raster images was recently added to the R graphics engine.  This talk will discuss why this support was added and what the consequences are, with a mixture of cheesy and meaty examples.

Paul Murrell is a senior lecturer in the Department of Statistics at The University of Auckland, New Zealand.  He is a member of the core development team for R, with a focus on graphics.

    Paul's slides are available for download from his home page: http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~paul/ and there's a smaller version in the Files area (but with poorer image quality).

    I was floored by the notion that you could use R to perform image manipulation. Pretty awesome talk by Paul Murrell, who told me not to tell anyone he is actually Chuck Norris's emissary. It's no accident that Jim Porzak's beard and Chuck Norris's beard are strangely similar.

    I'm in NYC so I can't make this, but I wish I could. Meetup won't allow me to change my RSVP. Will there be a recording?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
