Research | Current

The current research project objective is to create a platfom for large-scale statistical computing, utilising the versatility and power of R.
Such a platform will allow statisticians to easily define and run complex distributed algorithms from within the R environment, rather than having to rely on external tools that don't have statistical computation as a goal.
This platform will be demonstrated through the implementation of complex iterative models in R, and applying these models to real-world tasks on large-scale problems.
