In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, July 9th, 2019, we will have two exciting talks about Word2Vec Text Mining & Parallelization in R!
You can RSVP here: https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/Munster-R-Users-Group/events/262236134/
Thorben Hellweg will talk about Parallelization in R. More information tba!
Maren Reuter from viadee AG will give an introduction into the functionality and use of the Word2Vec algorithm in R.
Text data in its raw form cannot be used as input for machine learning algorithms.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, April 9th, 2019, we will have two exciting talks: Getting started with RMarkdown and Trying to make it in the world of Kaggle!
You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/Gg5th/w54bW/f
Getting started with RMarkdown First, Niklas Wulms from the University Hospital, Münster will give an introduction to RMarkdown:
He started using R in 2018 and learnt the advantages of using only one framework of free software and code.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019, titled Don’t reinvent the wheel: making use of shiny extension packages., Suthira Owlarn will introduce the shiny package and show how she used it to build an interactive web app for her sequencing datasets.
You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/Gg5th/w54bW/f
Shiny is a popular R package for building interactive web apps and dashboards – no web development knowledge required!

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018, titled Using R to help plan the future of transport, Mark Padgham will provide an overview of several inter-related R packages for analysing urban dynamics.
You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/F7zDN/w54bW/f
The primary motivation for developing these packages has been their use in Active Transport Futures - a group of researchers and coders striving to aid cities to better plan for futures in which active travel, particularly walking and cycling, plays an increasingly prominent role (lots of open source code at github.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, August 28th, 2018 Jenny Saatkamp will give a talk titled Blog Mining: Deriving the success of blog posts from metadata and text data. You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/F7zDN/w54bW/f
In our next MünsteR Meetup, Jenny Saatkamp will present her Blog Mining analysis, which is based on 1.500 blog posts from the codecentric company blog (https://blog.codecentric.de/) and makes use of different mining techniques for metadata and text data.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Monday, June 11th, 2018 Thomas Kluth and Thorben Jensen will give a talk titled Look, something shiny: How to use R Shiny to make Münster traffic data accessible. You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/F7zDN/w54bW/f
About a year ago, we stumbled upon rich datasets on traffic dynamics of Münster: count data of bikes, cars, and bus passengers of high resolution. Since that day we have been crunching, modeling, and visualizing it.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 Kai Lichtenberg will talk about deep learning with Keras. You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/DDY1B/w54bW/f
Although neural networks have been around for quite a while now, deep learning really just took of a few years ago. It pretty much all started when Alex Krizhevsky and Geoffrey Hinton utterly crushed classic image recognition in the 2012 ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge by implementing a deep neural network with CUDA on graphics cards.
