R and Big Data at Big Data Summit at UI Research Park

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.

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.
