Introduce yourself to the basics of machine learning with R 3.5
Get to grips with R techniques for cleaning and preparing your data for analysis and visualize your results
Learn to build predictive models with the help of various machine learning techniques
Use R to visualize data spread across multiple dimensions and extract useful features
Use interactive data analysis with R to get insights into data
Implement supervised and unsupervised learning, and NLP using R libraries
Machine Learning with R Quick Start Guide takes you on a data-driven journey that starts with the very basics of R and machine learning. It gradually builds upon core concepts so you can handle the varied complexities of data and understand each stage of the machine learning pipeline.
From data collection to implementing Natural Language Processing (NLP), this book covers it all. You will implement key machine learning algorithms to understand how they are used to build smart models. You will cover tasks such as clustering, logistic regressions, random forests, support vector machines, and more. Furthermore, you will also look at more advanced aspects such as training neural networks and topic modeling.
By the end of the book, you will be able to apply the concepts of machine learning, deal with data-related problems, and solve them using the powerful yet simple language that is R.
Use R 3.5 to implement real-world examples in machine learning
Implement key machine learning algorithms to understand the working mechanism of smart models
Create end-to-end machine learning pipelines using modern libraries from the R ecosystem
