1. Course description.
The powerful statistical capabilities of R programming language include a large selection of machine learning algorithms which can be applied for classification, clustering and predictive analytics. This course explores practical applications of the most frequently used machine learning methods such a k-Nearest Neighbours, Naive Bayes, Regressions and Decision Trees algorithms through R statistical environment. It also provides a good introduction to more advanced techniques e.g. Artificial Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines. The course aims to achieve the following goals:
The course will be presented by Simon Walkowiak – an author of “Big Data Analytics with R”. Simon is Mind Project’s expert in Big Data architecture for predictive modelling and has delivered numerous Big Data and Machine Learning training courses at various institutions, financial/business organisations, governmental departments and UK universities (including Big Data & Analytics Summer School organised by the Institute for Analytics and Data Science). He is also a former Data Curator at the UK Data Archive – the largest socio-economic digital data depository in Europe.
The course will run for three days (Wednesday to Friday) between 9:30am and ~5:00pm and will consist of alternating lecture-style presentations and practical tutorials. The example datasets used during tutorial sessions will come from social sciences, psychology and business fields, however the contents may vary depending on specific interests of participants (based on the Participant's Skills Inventory). There will be two 15-minute coffee/tea breaks and one 1-hour lunch break on each day of the course.
