—— FAQ

I want to know more about the talks..

R and big data: Spark and MongoDB are a fantastic opportunity to enhance R with big-processing and big-data features. We present a walkthrough to setup a working environment which will put Spark’s parallel processing and Mongo’s huge data handling capabilities at your fingertips in R. We will discuss the main features of SparkR with MongoDB and provide a toy example.

R and statistical learning: In the semiconductor industry, early power estimation is a critical requirement for Systems-on-Chip architects and marketing, which must provide competitive, yet realistic, power consumption quotations to customers in order to achieve design wins. In this talk, we will present an innovative approach for early power consumption estimation based on statistical learning techniques. The proposed statistical model has been developed in R and validated on two taped-out products for networking in leading-edge CMOS technology.
