NOTE: THE DATE HAS CHANGED TO MONDAY APRIL 29, 6:30 PM #=== Talks Speaker: Ash Pahwa Title: Deep Learning using R and TensorFlow (Part 2) Abstract: Google released TensorFlow software in 2015 targeted for the Deep Learning applications. Two primary misconceptions about TensorFlow are as follows. First, it can only be used with Python and second, it can only be used for building deep learning applications This talk will demystify these concepts. First, TensorFlow can also be used with R and any programming language. Second, TensorFlow’s main objective is to solve the mathematical problem (including differential equations) which contains multi-dimensional arrays (or tensors). Deep Learning Neural Networks is just another application of TensorFlow. In this second part, neural networks optimization techniques will be discussed. The implementation of Gradient Descent and Adam (Adaptive Momentum Estimation) optimization techniques will be covered using R and TensorFlow. --- Speaker: Peter Stemler Title: REST APIs and Shiny A brief show and tell of how you can use R to pull data from multiple business softwares into a Shiny app.
We are excited to announce that the first Orange Country R Users Group (OCRUG) data science hackathon now has tickets available. It is a weekend long event on May 18 and 19th. ********************** You can purchase tickets on eventbrite. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ocrug-data-science-hackathon-registration-58927749485 ********************** During this event, we will be exploring an interesting data set, starting from the raw data all the way through to a final "end product" (e.g. a data visualization, an interesting data insight, a predictive model, etc.). This event is open to all experience levels, from the complete beginner to the highly experienced. Participants will work in teams to "hack" through the data and will present their work at the end of the event for prizes including books, conference tickets (DataScienceGo), a year long membership to DataCamp.com, and more. You are free to create your own team, or we will assist in team creation if you do not have one. This is a great way to network, share, and learn from others. The main goal of the hackathon is to promote team work and foster education and learning in a welcoming environment. Though teams will competing to present their best work at the end of the event for prizes, communication and providing assistance across teams is highly encouraged. We will provide in-person training during the hackathon and online training prior to the event. Participants will need to bring their own computers during the event but we will also be providing cloud-based computing credits (AWS credits) to access additional computing resources. This is a great way to expand your experience and use industry class resources to work on large data sets. For example, you might choose to use a big EC2 instance or Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) with Spark or Hadoop. Everyone who registers by[masked] will be given free 30-days of access to DataCamp.com. This is a great site that will help prepare you for the event and improve your R and Data Science skills. You will have access to a huge number of courses on R, Python, SQL, Spark, Git, Shell and spreadsheets. We have set up a GitHub repository that has more information about the hackathon. Such as the schedule; how to use the AWS credits; setting up slack and much more. Further information will be provided prior to the event. https://github.com/ocrug/hackathon-2019 Schedule: https://github.com/ocrug/hackathon-2019/blob/master/schedule.md Slack: https://github.com/ocrug/hackathon-2019/blob/master/slack.md Your ticket includes, meals, snacks and drinks during the event. Optionally, parking at UCI is $10 per day. All participants must abide by the OCRUG Code of Conduct and R Consortium Code of Conduct. https://github.com/ocrug/hackathon-2019/blob/master/code-of-conduct.md https://wiki.r-consortium.org/view/R_Consortium_and_the_R_Community_Code_of_Conduct
