Data Science Workshop - Machine learning in R -

The “Machine learning in R” workshop on the 23. May 2018 is aimed at participants already familiar with the basics of R. The first part (~ 1 hour) will introduce participants to the basic concepts of supervised (classification / regression) and unsupervised (clustering) learning. Afterwards you will learn how to efficiently and easily apply the most common techniques in R using the comprehensive mlr package. Our instructor, Jakob Richter is an experienced data scientists and as a co-developer of mlr knows the ins and outs of the package. He will demonstrate some of its key features on a practical example enabling you to apply mlr on your problems to find a good pefrorming prediction model, analyze and tweaking the performance using mlrs tuning methods.
