In the video presentation below, industry luminary John Chambers makes a keynote presentation at the recent useR! 2014 conference, Interfaces, Efficiency and Big Data.
Here is a topic that receives much debate these days – as diverse fields like statistics, computer science and applied mathematics converge with newly named fields such as data science and big data. Can’t we all get along?
R is a widely used statistical programming language but its interactive use is typically limited to a single machine. To enable large scale data analysis from R, SparkR was announced earlier this year in a blog post. SparkR is an open source R package developed at U.C. Berkeley AMPLab that allows data scientists to analyze large data sets and interactively run jobs on them from the R shell.
