A Dashboard with Weak AI

Most dashboards display the same variables each day. I wanted something that was fresh - that changed based on spikes in the data.

How to Build a Data Dashboard using R (knitr), HTML, and Javascript (e.g.,Highcharts)

R has been the perfect language for the back end of this government data dashboard I am developing. It has excellent packages to pipe in data from every significant source Tools like dplyr and tidyr make cleaning and munging data trivial It is ideal for automating analysis In the R script that powers my dashboard, I have everything from simple averages and frequency tables, to a complex algorithm that converts timeseries figures to Z-Scores and then selects the top 3 variables to display based on standard scores from the last 7 days.
