R Decision Trees - A Tutorial to Tree Based Modeling in R

What is R Decision Trees?

One of the most intuitive and popular methods of data mining that provides explicit rules for classification and copes well with heterogeneous data, missing data, and nonlinear effects is decision tree. It predicts the target value of an item by mapping observations about the item.

You can perform either classification or regression tasks here. For example, identifying fraudulent…

R Nonlinear Regression Analysis

R Nonlinear Regression Analysis

Nonlinear Regression and Generalized Linear Models:

Regression is nonlinear when at least one of its parameters appears nonlinearly. It commonly sorts and analyzes data of various industries like retail and banking sectors. It also helps to draw conclusions and predict future trends on the basis of user’s activities on the net.

The nonlinear regression analysis is the process of building a…

R Linear Regression

Basics of Linear Regression

Regression analysis is a statistical tool to determine relationships between different types of variables. Variables that remain unaffected by changes made in other variables are known as independent variables, also known as a predictor or explanatory variables while those that are affected are known as dependent variables also known as the response variable.

Linear regression is a statistical procedure…

Manipulating and processing data in R

Manipulating and processing data in R

Data structures provide the way to represent data in data analytics. We can manipulate data in R for analysis and visualization.

One of the most important aspects of computing with data in R is its ability to manipulate data and enable its subsequent analysis and visualization. Let us see few basic data structures in R:

a. Vectors in R

These are…

Apache Spark Streaming

Introduction to Apache Spark Streaming

A data stream is an unbounded sequence of data arriving continuously. Streaming divides continuously flowing input data into discrete units for further processing. Stream processing is low latency processing and analyzing of streaming data.

Spark Streaming was added to Apache spark in 2013, an extension of the core Spark API that provides scalable, high-throughput and fault-tolerant stream…
