Text Analysis

New Docs/Workshops: Text Analysis with R provides an introduction to dealing with text in a variety ways in the R environment, including basic string manipulation, sentiment analysis, POS tagging, and topic modeling.

New Docs: Topic Modeling Demo offers a hands-on look at topic modeling in an attempt to make a little more clearer what’s going on behind the scenes. A more applied workshop on text analysis (including topic modeling) is currently in the finishing stages. [Read More]

Mixed Models

New Workshop: Mixed Models with R. I’ll be giving a short workshop on campus next week on mixed models, but took the opportunity to lay the groundwork for a more extensive one (day long) that will probably be given in the fall. [Read More]

Updated Document: Introduction to Machine Learning. The first doc I did with LaTeX / Sweave, but I hadn’t updated it in a very long time.

The document is now in html format via Rmarkdown, with some update to the content throughout. [Read More]

New and updated workshops

New/Updated Workshops: My God, it’s full of STARs! Using astrology to get more from your data. New workshop on generalized/structured additive regression models. Also gave an updated talk on Data Processing and Visualization in R.
