Course description

You're looking for a complete Classification modeling course that teaches you everything you need to create a Classification model in R, right?

You've found the right Classification modeling course covering logistic regression, LDA and kNN in R studio!

After completing this course, you will be able to:

· Identify the business problem which can be solved using Classification modeling techniques of Machine Learning.

· Create different Classification modelling model in R and compare their performance.

· Confidently practice, discuss and understand Machine Learning concepts


How this course will help you?

A Verifiable Certificate of Completion is presented to all students who undertake this Machine learning basics course.

If you are a business manager or an executive, or a student who wants to learn and apply machine learning in Real world problems of business, this course will give you a solid base for that by teaching you the most popular Classification techniques of machine learning, such as Logistic Regression, Linear Discriminant Analysis and KNN

Why should you choose this course?

This course covers all the steps that one should take while solving a business problem using classification techniques.

Most courses only focus on teaching how to run the analysis but we believe that what happens before and after running analysis is even more important i.e. before running analysis it is very important that you have the right data and do some pre-processing on it. And after running analysis, you should be able to judge how good your model is and interpret the results to actually be able to help your business.

What makes us qualified to teach you?

The course is taught by Abhishek and Pukhraj. As managers in Global Analytics Consulting firm, we have helped businesses solve their business problem using machine learning techniques and we have used our experience to include the practical aspects of data analysis in this course

We are also the creators of some of the most popular online courses - with over 150,000 enrollments and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones:

This is very good, i love the fact the all explanation given can be understood by a layman - Joshua

Thank you Author for this wonderful course. You are the best and this course is worth any price. - Daisy

What is covered in this course?

This course teaches you all the steps of creating a Linear Regression model, which is the most popular Machine Learning model, to solve business problems.

Below are the course contents of this course on Linear Regression:

· Section 1 - Basics of Statistics

This section is divided into five different lectures starting from types of data then types of statistics then graphical representations to describe the data and then a lecture on measures of center like mean median and mode and lastly measures of dispersion like range and standard deviation

· Section 2 - R basic

This section will help you set up the R and R studio on your system and it'll teach you how to perform some basic operations in R.

· Section 3 - Introduction to Machine Learning

In this section we will learn - What does Machine Learning mean. What are the meanings or different terms associated with machine learning? You will see some examples so that you understand what machine learning actually is. It also contains steps involved in building a machine learning model, not just linear models, any machine learning model.

· Section 4 - Data Pre-processing

In this section you will learn what actions you need to take a step by step to get the data and then prepare it for the analysis these steps are very important.

We start with understanding the importance of business knowledge then we will see how to do data exploration. We learn how to do uni-variate analysis and bi-variate analysis then we cover topics like outlier treatment and missing value imputation.

· Section 5 - Classification Models

This section starts with Logistic regression and then covers Linear Discriminant Analysis and K-Nearest Neighbors.

We have covered the basic theory behind each concept without getting too mathematical about it so that you understand where the concept is coming from and how it is important. But even if you don't understand it, it will be okay as long as you learn how to run and interpret the result as taught in the practical lectures.

We also look at how to quantify models performance using confusion matrix, how categorical variables in the independent variables dataset are interpreted in the results, test-train split and how do we finally interpret the result to find out the answer to a business problem.

By the end of this course, your confidence in creating a classification model in R will soar. You'll have a thorough understanding of how to use Classification modeling to create predictive models and solve business problems.
