We are also inviting submissions and case studies on a variety of topics, so please consider applying before the deadline on the 16th of November 2018 (see here for details)!

Come meet Jared Lander, our keynote at DataTech19

We are pleased to announce our first confirmed keynote speaker for DataTech19: Jared Lander, Chief Data Scientist of Lander Analytics (a data science consultancy based in New York City) and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Columbia University. Jared also organises the New York Open Statistical Programming Meetup and the New York R Conference. The applications of his work on data management, multilevel models, machine learning, generalized linear models and statistical computing have ranged from music and fund raising, to finance and humanitarian relief efforts.

He is also the author of R for Everyone: Advanced Analytics and Graphics and is creating a course with DataCamp on Lasso and Elastic-Net Regularized Generalized Linear Models via R package `glmnet`. Recently, he has spoken on topics such as parallel computing in R, deep learning, machine learning in R and time series in R at Strata (both New York and London) and ODSC London this year.

For a chance to hear Jared share his expertise and meet him during the post event networking, please be sure to get a ticket for DataTech19: early birds are on sale now and you can pick one up here.
