GTA R Users Group – Using R for Data Mining Competitions


Here are the presentation slides I used for my talk on “Using R for Data Mining Competitions” at Ryerson University as part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) R User’s Meetup Group.

Special thanks to Anthony Goldbloom from Kaggle and various competition winners for sharing their code and winning solutions. Also, thanks to Leo Guelman and Murtaza Haider for organizing the event!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

  1. Looks really interesting, but that slideshow made me really dizzy and I physically couldn’t keep reading it (seriously! i’m not just trying to be annoying). And it’s not the first time it’s happened to me with that awful prezi gimmick.

    • It was my first time trying a Prezi presentation but it definitely was not the first time I’ve heard that complaint! The motion sickness is certainly an issue but I think being able to see how everything fits in the big picture is a distinct advantage.

  2. Thanks for the presentation.
    It was very informative and you did an excellent job presenting the material!
    (And I liked the animation… it was much better than the out of the powerpoint animations)

  3. Is it possible to get a downloadable PDF of the slides? Thanks
