I spent yesterday at the very enjoyable Big Data Summit held at the University of Illinois Research Park at the edge of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. campus.

My (short) presentation was part of a panel session on R and Big Data which Doug Simpson of the UIUC Statistics department had put together very well. We heard from a vendor / technology provider with Christopher Nguyen from Adatao talking about their “Big R”, from industry with Andy Stevens talking about a number of some real-life challenges with big data at John Deere, from academia with Jonathon Greenberg talking about R and HPC for geospatial research and I added a few short comments and links about R, HPC and Rcpp. My few slides are now up on my talks / presentations page.

Overall, a good day with a number of interesting presentations and of course a number of engaging hallway discussions.
