Panel Discussion - The R and Science of Predictive Analytics: Four Case Studies in R

Jim Porzak, The Generations Network (

Chaired by Michael Driscoll, Dataspora LLC (

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!
