P.S. Community Policies & Code of Conduct:
The leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by minority genders (majority gender speakers may be allowed/invited as one-off guests in exceptional circumstances at the leadership team's discretion). Due to unexpected demand, we have opened learning participation to all genders, dependent on initial and on-going vetting by the leadership team. However, the stated priority of the R-Ladies communities is the development & support specifically of those identifying as a minority gender, and we, therefore, reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures the leadership team deems appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies is expected to fully respect each other, the mandate of this community, and the goodwill on which R-Ladies is founded, or face expulsion/a penalty of any form, at the discretion of the leadership team.

Full community guidelines are found here: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki

About the speaker:
Thiyanga Talagala has a Ph.D. in statistics from Monash Univ., Australia, and currently holds a senior lecturer position at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. She is interested in the theory, implementation, and application of machine learning methods to time-series datasets, as well as visualization of the results. She uses R in her research and has created or contributed to many R packages (https://github.com/thiyangt).

About the talk:
Many applications require data from a large number of time series to be forecast. However, large-scale time-series data present numerous challenges in modeling and implementation due to high dimensionality. Thiyanga´s talk will present three feature-based algorithms for large-scale time-series forecasting.
