My New Book and Other Matters

May 22, 2015

(This article was first published on Mad (Data) Scientist, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I haven’t posted for a while, so here are some news items:

  • My new book, Parallel Computation for Data Science, will be out in June or July. I believe it will be useful to anyone doing computationally intensive work.
  • After a few months being busy with the book and other things, I have returned to my Snowdoop project and my associated package, partools. I recently gave a talk on Snowdoop to the Berkeley R Group, and you will be hearing more here on this blog.
  • I’ve begun a new book on regression/predictive analytics, finishing two chapters so far.
  • I’ve been doing some research on the missing-value problem, and am developing a package for it too.

Lots of fun stuff to do these days. 🙂
