Statistical Analysis in PostgreSQL with PL/R- Joe Conway- FOSSASIA 2018

Published on: Saturday, 24 March 2018

Speaker: Joe Conway, VP PostgreSQL Engineering Crunchy Data Solutions

PL/R is a PostgreSQL extension that allows the use of R from within PostgreSQL for advanced analytics in a simple, efficient, and controlled manner. It has been available and actively maintained since January 2003. PL/R works with all supported versions of PostgreSQL, and all recent versions of R. It is used by thousands of people worldwide.

Recent trends in big data favor bringing the analytics closer to the data – meanwhile PL/R has been quietly providing this service for over 15 years! This presentation will introduce the audience to PL/R, discuss the pros and cons of this approach to data analysis, take them through basic usage, and finally illustrate its power with a few advanced examples.
