Last night I gave an introduction and demo of the caret R package to the Upstate Data Science group, meeting at Furman University. It was fairly well attended (around 20 people), and well received.

It was great to get out of my own comfort zone a bit (since graduate school, I’ve only really given talks on some topic in biostatistics) and meeting statisticians, computer scientists, and other sorts of data scientists from many different fields. This is a relatively new group, and given the interest over the last couple of months or so I think this has been sorely needed in the Upstate South Carolina region.

We’ll be participating in Open Data day in March of this year, so if you are in the Upstate SC region, or don’t mind making the trek from Columbia or Western NC, find us on Meetup. Our next meeting is a data hack night which promises to be interesting.
