THIS TUTORIAL HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW
R has become the “lingua franca” of statistics and predictive analytics due to its open-source nature. Now even the largest companies in the world are adopting R, not only because it is free but because many believe R is even more flexible and powerful than its billion-dollar proprietary rivals, SAS and SPSS.
This hands-on workshop will provide the attendee an introduction to R, an open-source statistical computing environment that some say is even more powerful and flexible than SAS and SPSS. Additionally, the session will also provide an introduction to predictive analytics theory and R’s ability to apply predictive analytics theory to real-world situations.
TUTORIAL REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR ATTENDEES
Attendees should bring a Windows or Mac laptop with the latest version of R installed. R can be downloaded at r-project.org.
