2009 Kick-off Meeting
Welcome & Upcoming Meeting Plan.
Panel Discussion - The R and Science of Predictive Analytics: Four Case Studies in R
Bo Cowgill, Google (http://www.google.com)
Itamar Rosenn, Facebook (http://www.facebook.com)
David Smith, Revolution Computing (http://www.revolution-computing.com)
Jim Porzak, The Generations Network (http://www.tgn.com)
Chaired by Michael Driscoll, Dataspora LLC (http://www.dataspora.com/)
We'll begin with an overview of prediction methods in R, and each of the panelists will discuss a case study of how R is used within their organizations.
We'll follow with a question and answer session for the panelists.
For existing R users, we hope this panel will show how R is being used for real world problems. For analysts who may not be familiar with R, we hope to illustrate R's features and demonstrate its value as a business tool.
Audience participation encouraged!
