Hi APRA-NW'ers,

Some last minute announcements for programs in the Portland area! Come join one or both presentations on data analytics being held in Portland this week and the end of April. Stay tuned for Seattle dates!

FRIDAY, APRIL 15 11:00 AM-12:30 PM
Zen and the HeART of Data Mining
Speaker: David Robertson
Recorded at APRA International conference 2010
The world is not perfect, and neither is our data. When analyzing data, it is critical to acknowledge error and discover the tools that highlight those levels of correlations interacting among the variables. The first step in data mining and predictive modeling is doing everything possible to create models that minimize this error. This session will use Microsoft Excel as analytical engine — a powerful tool available to all.
April 15th, University of Oregon Portland Development Office
70 NW Couch St
