“I am most excited about a couple sessions on the show agenda, both presentations feed into the paradigm of building intelligent systems at scale. First is “Business Rules on Hadoop” and second “Enabling R on Hadoop.” From the analytics perspective, we are witnessing more usage of R” - Zubin Dowlaty, VP Mu-Sigma interviewed at the Hadoop Summit, San Jose - June 26-27, 2013 - Antonio Piccolboni

“Ward and Kellis (Reports, September 5 2012) identify regulatory regions in the human genome exhibiting lineage-specific constraint and estimate the extent of purifying selection. There is no statistical rationale for the examples they highlight, and their estimates of the fraction of the genome under constraint are biased by arbitrary designations of completely constrained regions.” - http://arxiv.org/pdf... - Antonio Piccolboni

RHadoop tutorial at Strata NY - http://workstream.piccolboni.info/post...
Using R and Hadoop for statistical computation at scale. Antonio Piccolboni (Self), Joseph Rickert (Revolution Analytics) Tutorial Please note: to attend, your registration must include Tutorials on Monday. This tutorial is aimed at R users who want to use Hadoop to work on big data and Hadoop users who want to do sophisticated analytics. We will introduce to R, Hadoop and the RHadoop project. We will then cover three R packages for Hadoop and the mapreduce model. We will present numerous examples of incremental complexity including the combination of rmr and RevoscaleR to solve modeling problems. - Antonio Piccolboni
