Book Description

Machine learning is a field of Artificial Intelligence to build systems that learn from data. Given the growing prominence of R—a cross-platform, zero-cost statistical programming environment—there has never been a better time to start applying machine learning to your data.

The book starts with introduction to Cross-Industry Standard Process for Data Mining. It takes you through Multivariate Regression in detail. Moving on, you will also address Classification and Regression trees. You will learn a couple of “Unsupervised techniques.” Finally, the book will walk you through text analysis and time series.

The book will deliver practical and real-world solutions to problems and variety of tasks such as complex recommendation systems.By the end of this book, you will gain expertise in performing R machine learning and will be able to build complex ML projects using R and its packages.
