ICYMI: My talk on Introduction to Probabilistic Machine Learning

Incase you missed it, here is a recording of my talk on Introduction to Probabilisitic Machine Learning at the Las Vegas R & Data Science Meetup groups. I introduced probabilistic machine learning and probabilistic programming with Stan. I discussed the basics of machine learning from a probabilistic/Bayesian perspective and contrasted it with traditional/algorithmic machine learning

A Gallery of ggplot2 Extensions

It is now easier for R users to filter and search for ggplot2-extensions on the Gallery page. You can now search packages based on a filter like: if it is on CRAN; or if  it is for a particular task e.g. time series, networks, tech, etc. It is also easier for R developers to add their extensions to this Gallery.

Webinar: Model-Based Machine Learning and Probabilistic Programming using RStan

I am glad to announce that I shall be presenting a live webinar with Domino Data Labs on July 20, 2016 from 11:00 - 11:30 AM PST on Model-Based Machine Learning and Probabilistic Programming using RStan. If you are interested in adopting machine learning but are overwhelmed by the vast amount of learning algorithms, this webinar will show how to overcome that challenge.

Incase you missed it: My Talk at the United Nations Global Pulse Workshop

In case you missed my talk at the 2016 Data Science Africa Workshop organized by the United Nations Global Pulse Lab, here is the recording. My talk was titled “Sustainable Urban Transport Planning using Big Data from Mobile Phones”.

A Preview of My Talk for the Data Science Africa Workshop organized by the United Nations

I am excited to be invited by the United Nations Global Pulse lab to speak at the 2nd Data Science Africa Workshop scheduled to take place in Kampala, Uganda from 30th June to 1st July. I will be speaking particularly on “Data Science for Sustainable Cities”. My talk is titled: “Sustainable Urban Transport Planning using Big Data from Mobile Phones”.

Webinar: Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis with R

I am glad to announce that I shall be presenting a live webinar with Domino Data Labs on February 24, 2016 from 11:00 - 11:30 AM PST: Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis with R. If you are interested or know someone interested in learning how to manipulate spatial and spatial-temporal data with R, please send them along

Tracking ggplot2 Extensions

The purpose of this blog post is to inform R users of a website that I created to track and list ggplot2 extensions. The site is available at: http://ggplot2-exts.github.io. The purpose of this site is to help other R users easily find ggplot2 extensions that are coming in “fast and furious” from the R community

Using Apache SparkR to Power Shiny Applications: Part I

The objective of this blog post is demonstrate how to use Apache SparkR to power Shiny applications. I have been curious about what the use cases for a “Shiny-SparkR” application would be and how to develop and deploy such an app.
