Cet atelier est maintenant complet. Un deuxième atelier est aussi offert le 23 septembre.
Un lunch sera fourni. Si vous ne pouvez plus être présent à l'atelier, svp nous aviser afin de permettre à d'autres participants de pouvoir y assister.
This workshop has no pre-requisite. Having some statistical knowledge in the level of introductory statistics and elementary coding is beneficial.
This is an interactive one-day workshop. We will guide you step by step to get familiar with R focused on elementary machine learning. Bring your laptop with R and RStudio already installed.
R is an open-source statistical software, widely developed in academia and industry with more than 2 million users around the world. Many cutting edge companies such as google use R as their data analysis platform. The aim of this workshop is to introduce some elementary R skills such as data loading, data pre-processing, and data visualization. We will practice some machine learning libraries to execute several supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised learning algorithms.
Machine learning requires a wrap of several skills, such as coding, optimization, statistics, and data analysis. This set of skills facilitates extraction of knowledge from large volumes of structured or unstructured data. It is a subfield of artificial intelligence with the purpose of discovering the underlying pattern of data through predictive modeling. The ultimate goal is to adopt data preprocessing, statistics, and black box predictive algorithms in order to draw conclusions and take (automatic) actions from (large amount of) data.
