Introduction to association rule learning in R with the apriori package

Date: 2018-08-09 at 18:00
Location: Saint Louis, United States

Description Snippet:

By: Alexander Mueller

The famous application of association rule learning is discovering the interesting 'beer and diapers' relationships in large point-of-sale databases, and it is generally an interesting tool for datasets that are very large, thick or resistant to being structured in a rigidly tabular format. I will provide a gentle, very R-specific introduction to association rule learning and the 'apriori' package. Although I will give some general background on association rule learning in general, the focus of the talk will be on practical issues specific to R including elaboration on wrangling data, typing issues, managing the demands of large datasets, and visualizations available for interpretation of results.

The meetup will be held in the CIC building at 20 South Sarah Street, St. Louis, MO 63108. We will be in the Showroom. The building entrance is at the corner of Forest Park Avenue and Sarah Street. You can find directions at Sign-up for this event at meetup.com

R and Python study group

Date: 2018-08-11 at 10:00
Location: West des Moines, United States

Description Snippet:

Are you tired of learning and playing with Python and R alone? Would you like to get together with a few friends and learn together? I have been starting to learn R and Python for data science and following the typical route of videos and practice projects. I really want to ramp up my learning and exposure to different ways. Here is my proposal:

- Gather a small group of 2-5 and learn together.
- Meet at a coffee shop, library, or some other space that has Wi-Fi.
- Pick a project, data set or problem, then work to solve it with different tools.
- Keep it fluid and informal.
- Meet on a regular basis, say weekly to start, and adjust as needed.
- Aim to keep the meetings 2-4 hours long, but this can be adjusted to the project or group. People can come and go as needed.
- It does not have to be the same people each time, so you only have to commit to going once to check it out.

Are you interested? Show up at the meeting spot, have some coffee, meet ... read more at the event page.
