The meeting consists of two R talks and a free buffet + networking time
R and big data: "Interactive big data analysis with R, SparkR and MongoDB: a friendly walkthrough" by Thimoty Barbieri and Marco Biglieri
R and Statistical Learning: "Power consumption prediction based on statistical learning techniques" by Davide Pandini
Buffet offered by Quantide and networking time
What's the price?
The event is free and open to everybody. Due to logistic reason, the meeting is open to max 45 participants, and registration is needed.
Where is it?

I want to know more about the talks..
R and big data: Spark and MongoDB are a fantastic opportunity to enhance R with big-processing and big-data features. We present a walkthrough to setup a working environment which will put Spark's parallel processing and Mongo's huge data handling capabilities at your fingertips in R. We will discuss the main features of SparkR with MongoDB and provide a toy example.
R and statistical learning: In the semiconductor industry, early power estimation is a critical requirement for Systems-on-Chip architects and marketing, which must provide competitive, yet realistic, power consumption quotations to customers in order to achieve design wins. In this talk, we will present an innovative approach for early power consumption estimation based on statistical learning techniques. The proposed statistical model has been developed in R and validated on two taped-out products for networking in leading-edge CMOS technology.
..and the speakers..
