On Saturday 30th April, supported by The Data Lab, MBN Solutions and the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences, 5 MBN team members attended a guest lecture by Hadley Wickham at the University of Edinburgh. Hadley is Chief Scientist at RStudio and an Adjunct Professor of Statistics at the University of Auckland and had been invited to present by EdinbR – an Edinburgh “R” user group.

To our delight, MBN’s Head of Business Development, Robin Huggins was asked to chair the subsequent Q & A session. The lecture focussed on presenting some of the more advanced functionality within “R” – with Hadley demonstrating these techniques whilst showing a live case study based on statistics such as life expectancy within different countries and cultures.

Shortly after, lunch and a lively networking session was had. Robin Huggins, Head of Business Development comments, ‘All in all a thoroughly enlightening session.’
