They discuss the art and science of predictive modeling in the real world, the multifaceted and widely used R caret package, the pluses and perils of programming in R and much more. As a special bonus, Max also describes John Quinlan’s C5.0, an alternate “forest of decision trees” algorithm, the secrets of which were hidden behind commercial licensing for years – and which has recently been ported and made available to the R ecosystem. Max is the Director of Nonclinical Statistics at Pfizer
