[Talk Information]
• 當Julia遇上資料科學
Julia是個新興的數值與科學計算程式語言,比起常用的Python、R或MATLAB,他有像C一般的執行速度,也有像Python動態語言般的簡潔語法,這使得他成為科學運算以及資料科學領域相當適合的工具。想知道為什麼要用 Julia嗎? 想知道Julia的特色在哪裡? 想知道 Julia的社群能量嗎? 讓我們一起來探索Julia這個語言吧! 一起來看看Julia碰上資料科學會擦出怎樣的火花。

Date: 2018-08-28 at 19:00
Location: Münster, Germany

Description Snippet:

In our next MünsteR Meetup, Jenny Saatkamp will present her Blog Mining analysis, which is based on 1.500 blog posts from the codecentric company blog (https://blog.codecentric.de/) and makes use of different mining techniques for metadata and text data.

The presentation is divided into two parts:

First, new insights into the blog posts and their success is gained using metadata. Therefore, diverse methods and R-packages are used such as H2O automatic machine learning, lime, clustering and basic explorative statistics. The sources of metadata are the blog itself, Google Analytics and the SEO-Tool Ahrefs.

Getting started simulating data in R: some helpful functions and how to use them

Date: 2018-08-28 at 18:00
Location: Eugene, United States

Description Snippet:

Knowing how to simulate data in R has been incredibly useful to me in my day-to-day work. Simulating data is useful not only for exploring the long-run behavior of a statistic but also allows you to make small datasets for working out hard data manipulation tasks or for testing your intuition about a mathematical relationship or statistical model. But how does a person get started with simulations? In this talk I will go over some of the functions R has available to help with simulating data. I'll discuss functions for random number generation, replicating elements of a vector, and repeated data generation. We'll go in depth on how to use these functions and then practice creating datasets of different shapes and sizes.

Cancer Mutations Scores & Reactivity in Shiny Apps

Date: 2018-08-28 at 18:30
Location: Irvine, United States

Description Snippet:

Talk 1: Classification and Statistical Analysis of Cancer Mutations Scores
By: Yemi Odeyemi (Ph.D. Candidate in Data Science at Chapman University)

The talk will describe part of Yemi's doctoral work on building a statistical and predictive model to classify driver-passenger mutations. A Logit model is used with 10-fold cross-validation. The data was preprocessed to impute missing values using the rule-of-thumb approach, removal of redundant features and feature scaling. Feature selection was determined using a stepwise approach based on AIC. The objective was to determine the optimal class boundary for the probability for discretization. The models were evaluated with Receiver Operator Characteristics - Area under the curve (ROC-AUC) which is based on sensitivity and specificity.

Talk 2: How Reactivity Works in Shiny Apps
By: Tuck Nugn (Senior Data Scientist at Oracle)

Reactivity is not a common programming paradigm but is an important part of the Shiny ... read more at the event page.
