Our speaker, Scott Wallihan, will be covering how to expand R’s functionality through custom packages. This topic will be covered over two meetings. In our April meeting, we will cover the basics of creating R packages in standard R code, and also in C and C++. In the following meeting, we will cover how to write high-performance R packages using multithreaded C/C++ programs, and also CUDA, enabling R programs to leverage the highly parallel computational power of NVIDEA’s GPU compute devices, including ordinary video cards.
