Understanding the World through R
November 8, 2016 (7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)
The world is bubbling over with data. When analyzed, data can provide the inquiring mind with useful information that can suggest outcomes and support decision-making. Be it the data generated about business practices, human behaviours, the biological world; being able to understand what your data is telling you is incredibly empowering. “R” is a free, accessible, and powerful programming language that offers a suite of tools for data analysis.
Our tour guide, Trevor Avery — biostatistician, faculty member at Acadia University, and coordinator of R-bar — will provide us a primer on R. Through a series of examples, he will demonstrate the various strength of R in data analysis and data visualization. No experience with programming is required to learn about what R can do for you. Just bring your inquiring mind.
