Understanding Machine Learning with R 3

by Jerry Kurata

This course walks through the process of creating a machine learning prediction solution. The course introduces and uses R, the primary language for Machine Learning.

What you'll learn

In this course, you will learn how developers and Data Scientists use Machine Learning to predict events based on data. Specifically, how to format your problem to be solvable, where to get data, and how to combine that data with algorithms to create models that can predict the future. Throughout this course we will use R, one of the best known Machine Learning languages. No previous R experience is required.
