This course explores several modern machine learning and data science techniques in R. As you probably know, R is one of the most used tools among data scientists. We showcase a wide array of statistical and machine learning techniques. In particular:
Most of the examples presented in this course come from real datasets collected from the web such as Kaggle, the US Census Bureau, etc. All the lectures can be downloaded and come with the corresponding material. The teaching approach is to briefly introduce each technique, and focus on the computational aspect. The mathematical formulas are avoided as much as possible, so as to concentrate on the practical implementations.
This course covers most of what you would need to work as a data scientist, or compete in Kaggle competitions. It is assumed that you already have some exposure to data science / statistics.
