Whose Scat Is That? An 'Easily Digestible' Intro to Predictive Modeling & caret!
R-Ladies London, the UK branch of the international R-Ladies Global community, invites you to our October Workshop! As a social initiative, our events are always free to attend. To register for future events, join our official Meetup Group, and follow us on Twitter @RLadiesLondon!
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, is running a special tutorial especially for R-Ladies London.
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!
TIMINGS: because of Imperial security, attendees MUST be gathered in front of the building between 6-6.15pm to be signed-off, before being let through by security at 6.15pm prompt, for workshop start at 6.30pm. LATECOMERS ARRIVING AFTER 6.15pm WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN - please comply as much as is possible to avoid disappointment.
As always, all are welcome to attend as learners regardless of gender, R proficiency, or other attribute - we aim to be a fully inclusive, diverse user group, whilst maintaining our commitment to promoting R amongst women. To this end, as we expect significant demand for this event, we have apportioned a volume of tickets available to male guests of the community.
Code of Conduct: anyone who violates or has previously violated this community's Code of Conduct will be refused entry, expelled, and/or any other action deemed appropriate by the Organiser, regardless of event registration, meetup membership or other condition.
