What we're about

R-Ladies Dublin is part of R-Ladies Global (https://rladies.org/).

R is a powerful open-source software for statistical analysis and data visualisation.

Our goal is to make R loved and used by more people, especially women and non-binary folks. We meet to exchange knowledge and create network of learners & mentors.

Our Meetups are open to everyone, all levels of R and are free of charge.

We share our presentations and code on GitHub (https://github.com/rladies/meetup-presentations_dublin).

If you want to support R-Ladies Dublin or get involved in our meetups, we'd love to hear from you. Please email Jo at dublin (at) rladies (dot) org.

An introduction to Random Forests using R - RLadies June meetup

Location visible to members

Our next meetup is on Monday, 24th June, kicking off at 6:30pm. The folks at NewsWhip are hosting us again at their offices on 47 Merrion Square. Massive thanks to NewsWhip for your on-going support! We will get stuck into random forests. I am delighted that Bruna Wundervald offered to give a talk-workshop. Bruna is a Ph.D. candidate in Bayesian Machine Learning at the Hamilton Institute, in the National University of Ireland Maynooth. She is a member and co-organiser of the Curitiba and São Paulo R-Ladies chapters in Brazil. She's also active in the worldwide R community. Her current work is focused primarily on developing new machine learning methods following the Bayesian paradigm, variational inference, and multivariate statistics, as well as implementing the methods in different programming languages. She's awesome! Agenda: 18:30 Networking - ask another participant about their latest project in R and if they don't use R, ask why they'd like to learn R. 19:00 Welcome, Jo Niec, R-Ladies Dublin 19:05 Tech stack at NewsWhip, Damien Marshall, Head Of Engineering at NewsWhip 19:15 An introduction to Random Forests using R, Bruna Wunderwald, NUI Maynooth This talk-workshop is suited to all levels of R. What you can expect from it? - an overview of the theory of tree based models: decision trees and random forests - you will learn how to implement and interpret random forests in R
