The Boruta library and a case study in R


Earl Glynn will talk about the Boruta library in R, which does feature selection. Serge Bushman will present a case study in R. He provided me the following description: "A great way to learn R is to pursue a project with loose timelines. This presentation describes a real-life project with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas City, who wanted to increase the likelihood that their match proposals result in successful relationships. It spans data munging, visualization, modeling, and app-development."
