* R-Ladies Belo Horizonte - MeetR-Ladies Belo Horizonte - Meet


Who are we? R-Ladies Belo Horizonte is part of a worldwide organization to promote gender diversity in the statistical computing language community. Our main mission is to support minority genres to reach their programming potential by building a collaborative global network of leaders, mentors , learners and developers to facilitate individual and collective progress around the world. We also try to promote, at our events, lectures on female entrepreneurship and diversity so that women in the environment feel engaged in chasing after their market space.

Wednesday 13 November 2019, 05:00pm - 07:00pm Location: Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol St, London EC1Y 8LX About the event: Multiple-systems estimation is a key approach for quantifying hidden populations such as the number of victims of modern slavery. The UK Government published an estimate of 10000–13000 victims, constructed by the present author, as part of the strategy leading to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This estimate was obtained by a stepwise multiple-systems method based on six lists. Further investigation shows that a small proportion of the possible models give rather different answers, and that other model fitting approaches may choose one of these. Three data sets collected in the field of modern slavery, together with a data set about the death toll in the Kosovo conflict, are used to investigate the stability and robustness of various multiple-systems-estimate methods. The crucial aspect is the way that interactions between lists are modelled, because these can substantially affect the results. Model selection and Bayesian approaches are considered in detail, in particular to assess their stability and robustness when applied to real modern slavery data. A new Markov chain Monte Carlo Bayesian approach is developed; overall, this gives robust and stable results at least for the examples considered. The software and data sets are freely and publicly available to facilitate wider implementation and further research. Speaker: Bernard W Silverman (University of Nottingham, UK) This event will be followed by a drinks reception

* Book Club - R for Data ScienceBook Club - R for Data Science


The idea of the book club is to read through an R programming book in stages and work through questions/exercises over a several consecutive meetings. During the meeting attendees have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the content of the book with the session host and each other. If the book includes exercises the meeting offers the opportunity to compare each others answers and work on more difficult problems together. The first book we will work through is the R for Data Science book (available online: https://r4ds.had.co.nz/ ), each fortnight we will discuss one of the sections: Explore, Wrangle, Program, Model, Communicate If this format is successful, future books could include: 1. Advanced R - https://adv-r.hadley.nz/ 2. R packages - http://r-pkgs.had.co.nz/ 3. Deep Learning with R (Not available for free, however, the associated github repo has all exercises)
