Tutorial: An Introduction into Statistical Computing and Natural Language Processing with R

The Eight International Conference on Advances in Databases, Knowledge, and Data Applications (DBKDA-2016)

June 26 - 30, 2016 - Lisbon, Portugal

Andreas Schmidt, Steffen Scholz

Preparation steps

Because the tutorial contains a number of hands-on-exercises it is recommendable to install the R environment before the tutorial (due to probably small bandwidth in the conference hotel).

So, please go to the R download page and choose the nearest mirror site. The easiest way is to download a precompiled version for your operating system. After downloading the installation file, install the program.

To test, if the program is installed correctly, paste the following code into the input window and type return ...

    x<-seq(-pi, pi, by=0.01)
    plot(x,y, type="l")
a nice sinus plot (like this) should appear
