The course has the purpose of teaching the participants how to develop a Predictive Analytics solution with R, test it, and evaluate its accuracy. The topics include a more theoretical part on the functioning of the models, and a practical part, in which we will use some of the R packages to implement and evaluate predictive analytics models. The algorithms that are part of the program of the course are: Naive Bayes, Decision trees, Neural Networks, K-Means Clustering, Association Rules. These algorithms will be applied to realistic cases. The course requires at least a basic knowledge of the R language. However, fundamental concepts will be reviewed to better understand the part devoted to Predictive Analysis

Main topics:

  • Data preparation: exploration, variables creation, PCA, MICE, how to deal with NULL
  • Predictive Analytics algorithms:Linear regression, Logit, Clustering, Naive Bayes, Decision trees, SVM, Neural Networks
  • Ensemble methods: Random forest, bagging/Boosting
  • Model evaluation: ROC curve, Cross validation, Bootstrapping
  • Integration with other softwares: KNIME, Azure machine learning …
  • Time series analysis: decomposition, Exponential smoothing, ARIMA models
  • Text analytics: Package tm, other packages
  • The course requires at least a basic knowledge of the R language
  • It is suggested to follow the course Data Analysis with R

Participants will be able to develop predictive analytics solutions from a modelling perspective, as well as implementing it with the R software. They will also be able to test model performances and evaluate whether it is worth using them in real life.
For a deeper understanding of different softwares that can be used for Predictive Analysis, we suggest to follow these courses: Predictive Analytics with Rulex, Predictive Analytics with Azure Machine Learning
