As part of the Predictive Analytics World conference, the Bay Area R UseRs group is co-locating a panel with representatives from four Bay Area firms which use R on a daily basis.
* Bo Cowgill, Google
* Itamar Rosenn, Facebook
* David Smith, Revolution Computing
* Jim Porzak, The Generations Network
Chaired by Michael Driscoll, Dataspora LLC
We'll begin with an overview of prediction methods in R, and each of the panelists will discuss a case study of how R is used within their organizations.
We'll follow with a question and answer session for the panelists.
For existing R users, we hope this panel will show how R is being used for real world problems. For analysts who may not be familiar with R, we hope to illustrate R's features and demonstrate its value as a business tool.
Audience participation encouraged!
