PostgreSQL-embedded Statistical Analysis with PL/R

  • December 20, 2011 · 6:30 PM

R is the leading free software environment for advanced mathematical and statistical computing and graphics. PL/R is a PostgreSQL extension that allows the use of R from within PostgreSQL for advanced analytics in a simple, efficient, and controlled manner. This presentation will introduce the audience to PL/R, illustrate basic usage, and provide a few more advanced examples of its power.

This talk will be led by Joe Conway. Joe is an innovative leader with broad experience in a wide array of disciplines and extensive international business exposure. He has been involved with PostgreSQL as a contributor since 2001. He is also the author and maintainer of a PostgreSQL procedural language handler for the R language, PL/R. Joe is currently President/CEO of credativ USA, which specializes in open source software with a comprehensive range of services, including consulting, architectural and technical advice, software development, training, and personalized support.
