Did you know that Target predicts customer pregnancy from shopping behavior, increasing potential customers by 30%? Ever wondered how Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Netlflix give accurate recommendations about products, friends, personal connections, and movies? Did you know that law enforcement agencies in some states are fighting crime by predicting it and preventing it before it happens? Amazon has recently filed a patent on ‘Anticipatory Shipping‘. Does this sound too good to be true?
This workshop will help you understand all of this and more. More than that, this workshop will enable you to create models for real-world predictive analytics problems like the ones discussed above. You will learn to use R and Azure Machine Learning Studio to build predictive models using real data sets. At the end of the workshop, you will form teams and compete against the best data scientists in the world in a Kaggle competition.
