The workshop has a strong focus on hands-on implementation and the thinking process behind building a predictive model. We will have both the theory component and in-class R programming exercises throughout the workshop to solidify your understanding of the material. At the end of the workshop, you will be paired with one of our mentors to participate in a Kaggle competition.
The workshop covers the following topics in general:
Beginning R programming
Data Exploration and Visualization. Feature engineering and thinking process in building a predictive model
Introduction to various predictive modeling algorithms and exercises to apply these algorithms on data sets
Metrics and methods for model evaluation and comparison. Best practices.
Building predictive models as a service.
Mentored participation in a Kaggle competition at the end of the workshop. Our mentors are some of the best data scientists in industry.
