May 24, 2018: Out of memory matrices

In this session, we will talk about the package bigstatsr. The package bigstatsr provides a special class of matrix than can be used to store some data in a matrix-like format on your disk but to access it almost as if it were in memory. It is particularly useful is you have a large matrix to analyze but not enough RAM on your computer. We will then see the statistical and helper functions that are provided by the package bigstatsr for this kind of matrices.
