The International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS) has announced that it will organise a three-day workshop on ‘R’—the world’s most powerful software environment and language for statistical computing and graphics—from May 5 to May 7, 2015, at Technopark Trivandrum.
R is a free and open source software developed and maintained by a community of passionate enthusiasts. Its ecosystem can handle the most sophisticated statistical analysis and also communicate with other software packages ranging from spreadsheets, graphing tools, and typesetting.
The three-day workshop, which will focus on the use of R in Data Mining, Analytics, and Visualisation, is intended for students, teachers, researchers, and IT professionals.
Graham Williams, Data Scientist at Togaware and Australian Taxation Office and Adjunct Professor at Australian National University and the University of Canberra, will conduct the session. Williams is also the developer of ‘Rattle,’ a mining and analytics tool built on top of R.
