Key note speakers

Frank Harrell – Professor of Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University who specialises in all things statistical modelling and bayesian. Professor of Statistical Thinking himself:

These are just the initial speakers we have lined up, but there are many more from the NHS and other sectors discussing how R is being used in the NHS and other settings, as well as the future direction of data science and programming languages? I will also be there giving a talk on NHS-R solutions and doing a package demonstration of the NHSDataDictionaRy package – a package for key NHS lookups, and other useful web scraping tools.
