  • Text mining methods for extracting information from large amounts of text
  • Use advanced digital services from Google,  Amazon, IBM, etc
  • And much much more

The workshop-series has no prerequisites and will cover everything from installation, R fundamentals and structure to basic programming and visualization tools.
