Training R: applying Data Science
Our R and data mining training course is focused on the actual application of Data Science. We use the programming language R, knowledge flows, and WEKA as tools to process the data science.
What are the most important challenges discussed in this course? And what are the learning aims?
- What is data science, pattern recognition, and data mining? What, exactly, is R?
- What is an algorithm, and how do you use R to build a reliable predictive model?
- What types of predictive models are there, and when do you use which one?
- How can you master programming in R?
- What are the success factors of R & data mining in terms of implementation?
The training R will answer all of these questions, and more. You’ll also learn how to work with R in practice. An ideal combination of theory and practice.
A new field to explore
Data Science is a new field all about discovering trends and patterns in data. These discoveries then form the basis of predictive models.
Discovering the basic principles of R
- During this training course, you’ll discover the various applications and appearance forms of data science in practice. What role does the data scientist play in an organization? And which possibilities are there to realize new business models? You can then start using the basic principles of R so that you can steer the ship.
- Afterwards, you’ll discover, research, and use the various algorithms: data mining. You’ll do this using WEKA, a collection of ready-made machine learning algorithms. Using this knowledge and knowledge of the algorithms, you’ll work with R in groups or alone. You’ll try out the different algorithms, and learn to look at their applications. You’ll learn how to influence the algorithms and the effects of that.
- Finally, this R training will discuss practical questions. You’ll answer these from the Data Science perspective. You’ll learn to strategically apply R: how do you determine the most successful model, and what is the business value of a prediction?
New possibilities every day with the R training
During this training, you’ll learn new techniques and possibilities every day. You’ll learn to directly apply them and evaluate them so you can use them in your daily practice. After completing this R training you’ll have a solid base to use Data Science in your organization.
Modules of the 5-day training R & data mining
The R & Data Science training course consists of five modules. These modules will immerse you in the specialist field of Data Science and the programming language R. Upon completion, you’ll be able to program in R and develop algorithms. You’ll also learn to implement them.
