April is Shiny!

April 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

Spring is here! That means this month is all about all things Shiny (if that makes sense)!

We have two speakers who are regulars on the R-Ladies Copenhagen circuit, Diana Lucatero and Ivana Hybenova. Special thanks go to Deloitte Risk Advisory for sponsoring this event!

Talk 1: Data science- from academia to industry
On this lighting talk, Diana will share her experience deploying advanced analytics in academia & industry with the main focus being the differences in communication & security considerations. The talk will include:
(1) A very introductory sketch of shiny (what it is and why)
(2) A hands on demonstration of how you can build & deploy a simple web app.
(3) A 10 min exploration session of some cool interactive visualizations.
(4) A demonstration on how you can install R packages in a secure manner (it’s all about risk, risk!).

Diana is a data science consultant in Deloitte Risk Advisory. She has experience with advanced analytics in environmental science & now she is applying her knowledge in the field of risk analytics. In the old days, she was a Matlab junkie, but now she has learned her lesson & joined the shiny-dark-R-side!

Talk 2: Using Shiny to troubleshoot machine learning tasks
In this talk, Ivana will show us how to use R Shiny to solve a machine learning task quicker!

She has built an app that loads in a cleaned dataset and train several regression models: linear, support vector machine (SVM), random forest for regression, and generalized boosted regression.

We will even tune the algorithms from within the app, where Ivana will demonstrate the app and review the code. Even if you have not tried to ‘machine-learn’ yourself, it is one more reason to join as it will be super easy to perform and understand!

Shiny experts: Be aware that this talk is introductory. You’re of course welcome to join, you’ll have fun anyway!

When: April 11th
Where: Deloitte Horizon
Time: 17:30 – 20:00

What to bring: laptop with RStudio installed. We will give you more details soon on which packages you will need in case you would like to code during the session.

Snacks, drinks and sandwiches will be provided. See you all soon!
