Primary tabs

Course Code

MLFWR1

Duration Duration

14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)

Requirements Requirements

Knowledge of R programming language. Basic familiarity with statistics and linear algebra is recommended.

Overview Overview

The aim of this course is to provide a basic proficiency in applying Machine Learning methods in practice. Through the use of the R programming platform and its various libraries, and based on a multitude of practical examples this course teaches how to use the most important building blocks of Machine Learning, how to make data modeling decisions, interpret the outputs of the algorithms and validate the results.

Our goal is to give you the skills to understand and use the most fundamental tools from the Machine Learning toolbox confidently and avoid the common pitfalls of Data Sciences applications.
