amst-R-dam December meetup w/ Special guest

Welcome to the Amst-R-dam December meetup.

First talk is given by Jared Lender,  who is organizing the New York R meetup. On our request he will talk about working with statistical programming in the US and compare Silicon Valley and New York. He will also show one his favorite R projects. Jared is a statistical consultant and adjunct professor at Columbia. Jared's home page.

Incidentally the second speaker, Chris Davis, co-organizer of this meetup, is also from the US, although he's based in NL. Chris is a post doc at TU Delft and he recently held his dissertation on the thesis  "Making Sense of Open Data". He previously gave a talk on Enipedia and the semantic web using R.  This time he will demonstrate a combination of Google Refine, RServe, and R which supports a workflow enabling individual users to clean up horribly messy data and then perform entity matching against other databases, by communicating with a reconciliation service running on a server.

Be there or be square!

Werner, Chris and Øyvind

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
