Title: A Titanic Analysis

Abstract: The RMS Titanic sank in 1912, what can we still learn from it today?  This talk will discuss the steps, process and outcome of using R to create a predictive model.  This model will be used to predict the “survivability” of individuals based off of key characteristics.  This talk will also discuss how creating a predictive model is useful in other catastrophic situations.
