Essential Machine Learning with R Training


Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.

Many industries working with large amounts of data have recognised the value of machine learning technology. By gleaning insights from this data, organisations are able to work more efficiently or gain an advantage over competitors.

In this basic machine learning course with R, you will learn the fundamental of machine learning using R. R is a good tool to learn machine learning due to its user friendliness and large community support.

Course Objectives:

  • Identify appropriate machine learning methods to address the problems and issues
  • Perform data analysis using machine learning methods
  • Draw inferences from the data analysis – Using R for machine learning
