RDataMining Tutorial on Machine Learning with R

I have run a tutorial on Machine Learning with R for the Melbourne Data Science Week in June 2017, which consists of four sessions:

  • R Programming:
    basics of R language and programming, parallel computing, and data import and export
  • Association Rule Mining with R:
    mining and selecting interesting association rules, redundancy removal, and rule visualisation
  • Text Mining with R:
    text mining, word cloud, topic modelling, and sentiment analysis,
  • Social Network Analysis with R:
    graph construction, graph query, centrality measures, and graph visualisation

All materials of the above tutorial, incl. PDF slides, datasets and R scripts can be downloaded as a single ZIP archive at

http://www.rdatamining.com/training/medascin/MLwR.zip

How to use it:

  1. Decompress the ZIP archive, and you will find file and folders below:
  • MLwR.Rproj: RStudio project file
  • code: R scripts
  • data: datasets
  • docs: PDF slides
  • figures: charts
  1. Open the “MLwR.Rproj” file with RStudio
  2. Open each PDF slides file (in folder “docs”) and run its corresponding R scripts (in folder “code”) to learn each topic

Detailed instructions for the tutorial are available at

Melbourne Data Science Week, 29 May – 2 June 2017

Melbourne Data Science Week
29 May – 2 June 2017

Two sold out events from 2016 are combining in 2017 to create what will hopefully be a great Data Science-palooza for Melbourne. Learn about applications, data, ideas and the latest tools for data science. Participate in panel sessions and break-time discussions with your colleagues from industry, academia and government. Hear from the datathon winners about how they did it.

For those who want hands on Data Science training there will be 8 full day tutorials from Mon-Thu.

I will run a tutorial on Machine Learning with R on 1 June, covering association rules, text mining and social network analysis. See details of the tutorial at http://www.datasciencemelbourne.com/medascin2017/session/datamining-applications-with-r/.

The tutorials are 80% full and will shortly sell out, so reserve your place now at  http://www.datasciencemelbourne.com/medascin2017/.
