CausalImpact Package
Karen Kazor - Oracle Data Cloud -

CausalImpact is a package contributed by the folks at Google to estimate the effect of a treatment or intervention on a individuals observed over time. In online advertising a common example is estimating additional clicks or other actions attributed to a campaign. Karen will discuss some of the ins and outs of this package.

Matt Pocernich - Oracle Data Cloud
Hans Rosling - Truthfulness and googleVis

Inspired by Hans Rosling's book - Factfulness, I will re-visit the googleVis package which was inspired by the very cool animated plots used in his 2006 Ted Talk. This talk will illustrate some the topics from recent book using goolevis and ggplot.

Question for discussion: When and why do you use R Notebooks in lieu of traditional Markdown documents?
