Super-R: Supercomputing and R for Data-Intensive Analysis

SESSION: Super-R: Supercomputing and R for Data-Intensive Analysis

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Weijia Xu, George Ostrouchov, Hui Zhang

ROOM:404

ABSTRACT:
R has become popular for data analysis in many fields, drawing power from its high-level expressiveness and numerous domain-specific packages. While R is clearly a "high productivity" language, it is not known as a "high performance" language. However, recent efforts have resulted in methods for effectively scaling R to the power of supercomputers. This BOF will consist of presentations at the intersection of supercomputing and R, followed by audience discussion to share experiences, needs, and questions. The ultimate goal is to help build a community of users and experts interested in applying R to solve data intensive problems on supercomputers.
