## Using R for parallelizing OpenBUGS on a single Windows PC

August 22, 2012
By

It seems that most of the R-parallelizing business takes place on Linux clusters. And it makes sense. Why would you want to paralellize R on just a few processors (2 or 4) of a Windows laptop PC when the whole…Read more →

Earlier this year data scientist Ryan Rosario gave a talk on parellel computing with R to the Los Angeles R User Group, and he recently made the slides from the talk available online. They're a great resource for anyone looking to make use of multi-processor systems a Hadoop based architechure to speed computations with big data. Ryan's talk was...

## Data Parallelism Using Oracle R Enterprise

August 2, 2012
By

Modern computer processors are adequately optimized for many statistical calculations, but large data operations may require hours or days to return a result.  Oracle R Enterprise (ORE), a set of R packages designed to process large data computations in Oracle Database, can run many R operations in parallel, significantly reducing processing time. ORE supports parallelism through the transparency layer,...

$Next R meeting in Paris INSEE: ggplot2 and parallel computing$

Hi, our group of R users from INSEE, aka FLR, meets monthly in Paris. Next meeting is on Wed 13 (tomorrow), 1-2 pm, room 539 (an ID is needed to come in,  map to access INSEE R), about ggplot2 and parallel computing. Since the first meeting in February, presentations have included hot topics like webscrapping, C in R, RStudio, SQLite

## Book Review: Parallel R

June 5, 2012

You have a problem: R is single-threaded, but your code would be faster if it could simultaneously run on more than one core.  You have access to a cluster and/or your computer has multiple cores.  Parallel R, by Q. Ethan McCallum and Stephen...

## The first version of my “inference from iterative simulation using parallel sequences” paper!

May 9, 2012

From August 1990. It was in the form of a note sent to all the people in the statistics group of Bell Labs, where I’d worked that summer. To all: Here’s the abstract of the work I’ve done this summer. It’s stored in the file, /fs5/gelman/abstract.bell, and copies of the Figures 1-3 are on Trevor’s The post The...

## A simple example of parallel computing on a Windows (and also Mac) machine
