NYC R user/Predictive Analytics Meetup on May 12
Last night at the AOL Headquarters in NYC Max Kuhn of Pfizer presented his Caret Package. There were over 100 people in attendance. It is a great package that is often used in Predictive Analytics contests like Kaggle. A copy of his slides are are on the Meetup site here. In fact the last four talks have been great. If you are newer to these Predictive Analytics Contests start with Puniyani's slides, followed by Max's and then to then on to Alex Lin and John Myles White. This is a superb group that attracts great presenters on some really cool topics. Max will be doing a class predictive analytics in R on October 16th and 17th at the New York City Predictive Analytics World.
