Next first steps – selected applications of R (200)

Speaker: Thomas Hütter

You enjoyed the walk-through for R newbies, now you want to take the next steps and get your eyes and hands on some R code? Let’s elaborate on two topics you might have seen in my “From SQL to R and beyond” presentation, plus we’ll check who obeys Benford’s law and who doesn’t. Here are the three subjects that this slightly code-heavy session will cover: • How to create dynamic T-SQL using R functions, for example to query your multi-company database • Visualizations in R based on shapefiles (those geographic polygons) and some choropleth technique • Applying Benford’s law, which actually is not about crime and fraud, but may help you to detect them
