September was another relatively slow month for new package activity on CRAN: “only” 126 new packages by my count. My Top 40 list is heavy on what I characterize as...continue reading.

Moving predictive machine learning algorithms into large-scale production environments can present many challenges. For example, problems arise when attempting to calculate prediction probabilities (“scores”) for many thousands of…continue reading.

In my training as a consultant, I learned that long hours of analysis were typically followed by equally long hours of preparing for presentations. I had to turn my complex...continue reading.
