Let's share what we know about R (advanced topics meeting)

This is a chance to talk about some of the advanced topics in R. Everyone is welcome of course and even if you are a beginner, you might get a feel of some of the more powerful aspects of the R programming language.

Steve Simon will talk about BUGS (Bayes Using Gibbs Sampling) and R. This is the talk he had planned for the last advanced topics meeting, but we ran out of time.

I'm working on a second speaker, but we need you to share your knowledge with R as well. If you can talk about something in R at any level, please contact me by email or leave a comment below.

    The short talk will illustrate a real-world example of the concepts Steve covers. I make a simple Bayesian model to model the Kansas City 311 water data and use it to give insight into the data and drive applications. Look forward to seeing everyone :)

    Nick Tomasino has volunteered to talk about an MCMC application that uses Python. MCMC (Markov Chain Monte Carlo) is the engine that drives BUGS and I'll give a quick general overview of how MCMC works in my talk.

    We have room for a third speaker, if anyone else has an advanced topic that they want to present.

    We had a couple of interesting suggestions for topics for this meeting. The first was documentation standards and R. I forgot who made that suggestion, but if you're willing to give that talk at this meeting or in August (it would fit just fine at either meeting), just post a comment here or send me an email.

    The second comment was a talk on text mining. The person who suggested it is just getting started and would be unable to give a talk just yet about this. If anyone in the group has done text mining and is willing to talk about it for this group, that would be wonderful.

    If there is something else that you'd like to see, let us
    know.
