Simulating A Universe in Tidyverse: Using R to Generate Statistical Simulations

Details

Tidyverse meets simulations during this talk from Sebastian Teran Hidalgo.

Thank you to Rise NY for hosting us.

About the Talk:
This talk will cover different tidyverse packages (dplyr, tidyr, purrr, ggplot2) and how to use them to create and work with statistical simulations. We will look at how to use simulations for statistical insights, power analyses with A/B testing, and to create aRt. The target audience is R users that want to start using simulations in their work or those who have experience with simulations but not with the tidyverse.
