I gave a “lightning talk” at last night’s Bay Area R Users Group. This was a format where we had ten minutes to talk about how various ways in which we use R. I decided to talk about what little progress I made on the Heritage Health Prize. This was a concerted three-month effort at Courant to learn R, Hadoop, and data mining . PS: The rankings there are inaccurate now–I haven’t touched it since the first progress prize in August and I think I’m about 4321748th place now.
I had a great time–everyone was nice and I had a lot of fruitful discussions with people after the event.comments powered by Disqus
