Are you interested in understanding machine learning concepts and building real-time machine learning projects with R, but don’t know where to start? Then, this is the perfect course for you!


Visualize patterns and associations using a range of graphs and find frequent itemsets using the Eclat algorithm


Compare the differences between different regression methods to discover how they solve problems


Incorporate R and Hadoop to solve machine learning problems on big data


Harness the power of robust and optimized R packages to work on projects that solve real-world problems in machine learning and data science

Duration: 8 hours

The aim of machine learning is to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, and find useful information from data. In addition to this, through incorporation with data analysis, machine learning can be used to perform predictive analysis. With machine learning, the analysis of business operations and processes is not limited to human scale thinking; machine scale analysis enables businesses to capture hidden values in big data.

This course will take you from the very basics of R to creating insightful machine learning models with R.

We start off with basic R operations, reading data into R, manipulating data, forming simple statistics for visualizing data. We will then walk through the processes of transforming, analyzing, and visualizing the RMS Titanic data. You will also learn how to perform descriptive statistics.

This course will teach you to use regression models. We will then see how to fit data in tree-based classifier, Naive Bayes classifier, and so on.

We then move on to introducing powerful classification networks, neural networks, and support vector machines. During this journey, we will introduce the power of ensemble learners to produce better classification and regression results.

We will see how to apply the clustering technique to segment customers and further compare differences between each clustering method.

We will discover associated terms and underline frequent patterns from transaction data.

We will go through the process of compressing and restoring images, using the dimension reduction approach and R Hadoop, starting from setting up the environment to actual big data processing and machine learning on big data.

By the end of this course, we will build our own project in the e-commerce domain. Then, we will tackle the problem of personalization.

By taking this course, you will gain a detailed and practical knowledge of R and machine learning concepts to build complex machine learning models.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Create and inspect the transaction dataset and perform association analysis with the Apriori algorithm
  • Predict possible churn users with the classification approach
  • Implement the clustering method to segment customer data
  • Compress images with the dimension reduction method
  • Build a product recommendation system
