The Manchester R user group met last Tuesday in a temporary venue next to the Manchester Art Gallery in the city centre.
We had a full house and were delighted to welcome representatives from both Manchester Universities as well as a number of leading research institutions. The commercial sector was again well represented with attendees from several high profile online retail organisations as well as marketing and analytics consultancies.
The group enjoyed 3 excellent presentations:
Mango’s own Chris Campbell spoke about some interesting work we are doing with Activinsights on automating human behavioural classification using data feeds from wrist-worn accelerometer devices. Tom Liptrot who does great work for one of Europe’s top cancer hospitals gave a fascinating account of the development of his first Shiny app, Predictshine and Graeme Hutcheson from Manchester University shared his experiences of how effectively R can be used to deal with missing data.
