Machine learning is one of the most important and disruptive technologies today, in industries ranging from pharma, to insurance, to marketing. In this course, you will learn how to apply machine learning techniques to data using the R statistical language. You will learn the basics of the machine learning process, from acquiring and exploring data, to selecting and implementing machine learning models, to evaluating their performance. We will cover the most common machine learning problems (regression, classification, and clustering), and introduce you to popular algorithms for solving these problems such as regression, decision trees, and deep learning. We will cover applied examples such as medical diagnoses, hiring decisions, demand forecasting and marketing campaigns.
