iNZight for data analysis

VIT – Visual Inference Tool
VIT is a developing collection of software modules for use in teaching and learning experiences aimed at developing the core concepts of statistical inference.

iNZight is packaged together with VIT. Both iNZight and VIT are R libraries but here we have packaged them inside a copy of R in such a way that they appear to the user as standalone software. (The user does not have to interact with R.)

Chris invites you to bring your laptop along to a seminar/workshop demonstrating the latest developments in two software packages.
You might like to download the software to your laptop before the seminar. Internet connectivity is not guaranteed in room 213, but the software will be available to download from a memory stick.

You are welcome to attend laptop-free, if you wish.
