April 25: Put an LLM on it!


Long-time meetup member and repeat NYR speaker Bryan Lewis returns for a talk about LLMs.

After the talk we will randomly select two attendees (both in-person and virtual) to receive free tickets to The New York R Conference taking place May 16-17.

Thank you to NYU for hosting us.

Everybody attending must RSVP through the registration form at There is a charge for in-person and virtual tickets are free. Space is extremely limited and in-person registration closes at 2 PM the day of the talk.

About the Talk:Oh no, not another talk on *that* topic. No fear: We will discuss (experimental) ways to think of data like time-series that fit in to the LLM zeitgeist from a training/set up perspective only. Along the way we’ll advertise some criminally under-utilized R packages.

About Bryan:A mathematician well-known to open-source software communities, Bryan was the chief data scientist for Revolution Analytics and the SciDB database project. He has worked with Intel, Microsoft, DARPA, and many others on projects in computational finance, genomics, and other fields. Bryan is a coauthor of the CRC Press textbook “A Computational Approach to Statistical Learning.”

Bryan lives in Appalachia, teaches math at his local community college, and is a whitewater kayaker, amateur mycologist and forager.

The venue doors open at 5:30 PM America/New_York where we will continue enjoying pizza together (we encourage the virtual audience to have pizza as well). The talk, and livestream, begins at 6:00 PM America/New_York.
