This video is an introduction to R programming in which I provide a tutorial on some statistical analysis (specifically using the t-test and linear regression).

It also demonstrates how to use dplyr and ggplot to do data manipulation and data visualization. Its R programming for beginners really and is filled with graphics, quantitative analysis and some explanations as to how statistics work.

If you’re a statistician, into data science or perhaps someone learning bio-stats and thinking about learning to use R for quantitative analysis, then you’ll find this video useful. Importantly, R is free.

With the rapid emergence of digital devices, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives in incredible ways. That force is data. We generated more data in 2017 than in all the previous 5,000 years of human history.

The massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time is allowing us to address some of humanity’s biggest challenges but as Edward Snowden and the release of NSA documents have shown, the accessibility of all this data comes at a steep price.

This documentary captures the promise and peril of this extraordinary knowledge revolution.
