Analyzing data in an HPC environment using R (April 2021)
|Name||Analyzing data in an HPC environment using R (April 2021)|
|Description||Analyzing data in an HPC environment using R|
|Type of event||Course|
|Location||Online, organised by PDC|
R is a freely available language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques: linear and nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification, clustering. But default R is not executed in parallel and consequently - for huge datasets or for extensive calculations - the analysis of your data can be quite slow.
In this course, which is being organised by PDC in its role as a SNIC PRACE training centre, you will learn what parallelization means, and how to make your R code faster using parallelization. We will also teach you how to run these codes on Tegner, which is a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster at PDC.
- Basic knowledge of R/RStudio and Linux
