Data Mining with R: Go from Beginner to Advanced!

@machinelearnbot

This is a "hands-on" business analytics, or data analytics course teaching how to use the popular, no-cost R software to perform dozens of data mining tasks using real data and data mining cases. It teaches critical data analysis, data mining, and predictive analytics skills, including data exploration, data visualization, and data mining skills using one of the most popular business analytics software suites used in industry and government today. The course is structured as a series of dozens of demonstrations of how to perform classification and predictive data mining tasks, including building classification trees, building and training decision trees, using random forests, linear modeling, regression, generalized linear modeling, logistic regression, and many different cluster analysis techniques. The course also trains and instructs on "best practices" for using R software, teaching and demonstrating how to install R software and RStudio, the characteristics of the basic data types and structures in R, as well as how to input data into an R session from the keyboard, from user prompts, or by importing files stored on a computer's hard drive. All software, slides, data, and R scripts that are performed in the dozens of case-based demonstration video lessons are included in the course materials so students can "take them home" and apply them to their own unique data analysis and mining cases.


Applied Machine Learning in Python Coursera

@machinelearnbot

About this course: This course will introduce the learner to applied machine learning, focusing more on the techniques and methods than on the statistics behind these methods. The course will start with a discussion of how machine learning is different than descriptive statistics, and introduce the scikit learn toolkit through a tutorial. The issue of dimensionality of data will be discussed, and the task of clustering data, as well as evaluating those clusters, will be tackled. Supervised approaches for creating predictive models will be described, and learners will be able to apply the scikit learn predictive modelling methods while understanding process issues related to data generalizability (e.g. The course will end with a look at more advanced techniques, such as building ensembles, and practical limitations of predictive models.


Learning Path: R: Real-World Data Science Solutions with R

@machinelearnbot

R is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R language is widely used among statisticians and data miners for developing statistical software and data analysis. R is open source and allows integration with other applications and systems. Compared to other data analysis platforms, R has an extensive set of data products. Problems faced with data like optimization and analyzation are cleared with R's excellent data visualization feature.


Programming Statistical Applications in R Udemy

@machinelearnbot

Programming Statistical Applications in R is an introductory course teaching the basics of programming mathematical and statistical applications using the R language. The course makes extensive use of the Introduction to Scientific Programming and Simulation using R (spuRs) package from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN). The course is a scientific-programming foundations course and is a useful complement and precursor to the more simulation-application oriented R Programming for Simulation and Monte-Carlo Methods Udemy course. The two courses were originally developed as a two-course sequence (although they do share some exercises in common). Together, both courses provide a powerful set of unique and useful instruction about how to create your own mathematical and statistical functions and applications using R software.

Hoy traemos a este espacio esta infografía de ZDnet, que nos presentan así: Infographic: 50 percent of companies plan to use AI soon, but haven't worked out the details yet Despite lacking experience and skills, many respondents to a recent Tech Pro Research survey said they'd find a way to pull off the implementation in-house. In a recent survey by Tech Pro Research, only 28 percent of respondents, most of whom were in IT leadership positions, said they have firsthand experience with AI or machine learning. However, if the survey results hold true, the majority of respondents will be using the technologies at work in the next few years. Another interesting findings from this survey was that while 42 percent of respondents said their technical staff lack the skills to implement and support AI and machine learning, 41 percent said that all the work in this area would be done in-house. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said their companies were also still working on selecting AI and machine learning vendors.


Spark for Machine Learning Udemy

@machinelearnbot

Spark lets you apply machine learning techniques to data in real time, giving users immediate machine-learning based insights based on what's happening right now. Using Spark, we can create machine learning models and programs that are distributed and much faster compared to standard machine learning toolkits such as R or Python. In this course, you'll learn how to use the Spark MLlib. You'll find out about the supervised and unsupervised ML algorithms. You'll build classifications models, extracting proper futures from text using Word2Vect to achieve this.


Data Analytics Foundations for Accountancy I Coursera

Often, as part of exploratory data analysis, a histogram is used to understand how data are distributed, and in fact this technique can be used to compute a probability mass function (or PMF) from a data set as was shown in an earlier module. However, the binning approach has issues, including a dependance on the number and width of the bins used to compute the histogram. One approach to overcome these issues is to fit a function to the binned data, which is known as parametric estimation. Alternatively, we can construct an approximation to the data by employing a non-parametric density estimation. The most commonly used non-parametric technique is kernel density estimation (or KDE).
