Video: R at Work and at Home

The following video was filmed at Melbourne R Users.
The description of the talk from the meetup site:

Eu Jin is a Senior Analyst with Deloitte Analytics in Melbourne. He has over four years experience in data mining and statistical modelling in various industries, developing solutions to solve difficult problems. Prior to joining Deloitte, Eu Jin worked for NAB (National Australia Bank) and TNS in marketing research.

Other than being a senior analyst at Deloitte, Eu Jin is also a competitive data miner (he recently won a Kaggle competition on credit scoring with fellow MelbURNian Alec Stephenson). In this presentation he’ll talk about the benefits of R from a data mining competitor’s point of view and from the point of view of an employee at Deloitte. The key insight from his experiences with R is that although R is the top favourite for recreational use, it’s not quite there yet for full commercial deployment. He’ll show what are some of the good things that R does well and some that it doesn’t do quite well, from his experience working in Deloitte versus using it for recreational purposes.

Unfortunately, we had to fall back on a secondary camera which resulted in some audio issues.
