Heads-up to anyone attending the sold-out Data Science Summit in Las Vegas this week: I'll be there tomorrow and Thursday for the conference and to discuss R on the panel discussion "Data Science Toolset – Recipes That Win" (more details about the panel discussion below.) I'm looking forward to meeting with the other R users there — tweet or email me if you'd like to meet up. 

Data Scientist Summit 2011: Data Science Toolset – Recipes That Win

Data science is an emerging field with a tremendous horizontal application. Organizations from a diverse range of industries that includes entertainment, life sciences, government and financial services employ data scientists to analyze their data with languages like R to help them make better business decisions.

David Smith, Vice President of Community for Revolution Analytics, will join a panel of analytics experts from Cloudscale, Zementis, Informatica and SAS to discuss the tools of choice for today’s data scientist. The panel, part of EMC’s Data Science Summit, will explore a number of themes central to data science, including agility in analytics, challenges posed by “big data” and convergences between different data science tools.
