On Wednesday, September 26th, I gave a talk about ‘Decoding The Black Box’ at the Frankfurt Data Science Meetup. My slides were created with beautiful.ai and can be found here. DECODING THE BLACK BOX And finally we will have with us Dr.Shirin Glander, whom we were inviting for a long time back. Shirin lives in Münster and works as a Data Scientist at codecentric, she has lots of practical experience.

In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on Monday, June 11th, 2018 Thomas Kluth and Thorben Jensen will give a talk titled Look, something shiny: How to use R Shiny to make Münster traffic data accessible. You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/F7zDN/w54bW/f About a year ago, we stumbled upon rich datasets on traffic dynamics of Münster: count data of bikes, cars, and bus passengers of high resolution. Since that day we have been crunching, modeling, and visualizing it.
