@Chaitya62 I really like this professor and he has a lecture on boosting, specifically the adaboost method of boosting. A bit long but I think worth it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHBmv7qCey4

I have to demo using D3 in R markdown tomorrow and I can't figure out how to send the data from R to D3 without writing and then reading a CSV file, and have no clue what to google, any hints?
Amelia

is it problematic to write/read a CSV?
how would you rather do it @a-2252 ?

I would rather send the data right from r to d3 without having to write and rewrite files as data is updated.
Amelia
@apottr
Nov 30 2016 22:31
but how?
because it'll be written to a file no matter what
whether you use some sort of server API or something

I am writing R code in an R markdown file that I am also writing the d3 code in. The data all exist in the file already but I can't figure out how to get D3 to recognize them
Let me get somewhere that I can open up laptop and explain better than I am on phone

Alright so I am finally at a computer, I am working in one single file, I load the data in R, science the data in R, and then have to visualize it in D3. The issue I am having is that I can't figure out how to get the data from R to D3 without writing a new data file in R and then reading it back into the same file I scienced and wrote it from which seems like a waste of resources.
Amelia
@apottr
Nov 30 2016 23:06
and you can't pass the data around with some sort of markdown variable?
Alice Jiang
@becausealice2
Nov 30 2016 23:24
Does markdown do variables? O.o
Amelia
@apottr
Nov 30 2016 23:24
I'm still a bit confused as to how you've managed to merge d3 and R code into one file
and how that all fits together

Okay
