Details

Max Kuhn, author of the popular caret package (training Regression & Classification models), and Director of Non-Clinical Statistics at Pfizer Global R&D in Connecticut, US will be running a special tutorial especially for R-Ladies whilst visiting the UK for a conference!

This is a unique opportunity, and will be of particular value to Intermediate R users+ who want to learn about predictive modeling in R in general, and using the caret package specifically. The hands-on tutorial will assume a general level of working ability with R, so please be aware there is a knowledge/skill/interest pre-requisite for gaining maximum benefit from this session!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIRED PACKAGES: there will be no public WiFi, therefore you MUST install the required packages beforehand. You can run this code:

pkgs <- c("caret", "nnet", "glmnet", "RANN", "ipred", "rpart")

for(i in pkgs)
