| In this course, we use R to solve data analytics problems in real world applications. We use R data analysis and machine learning methods learned in the previous courses, placing the emphasis on the regression and classification methods for data prediction, and the Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms for text processing.
At the end of the course, participants will present a small project using data of their choice and will use R descriptive and predictive data analytics, and NLP methods.
Some of the fields where the methods can be applied include: telecommunications, IT, health sciences, financial industries, logistics, education, social media, etc.
|Topics to be covered include:|
Please note that the instructor reserves the right to modify this schedule.
|Week 1||Topic 1 and 2|
|Week 2||Topic 3|
|Week 3||Topic 4 and 5|
|Week 4||Topic 6|
SOFTWARE TO BE USED
For the course, we will mainly use R, which is the industry standard for statistical learning and provides functions for most of the methods.
LABS and DATASETS
In addition to the prepared datasets for the labs, participants will present a small project using data of their choice at the end of the course and will use R descriptive & predictive data analytic and NPL algorithms.
