Starting with the basics, Applied Unsupervised Learning with R explains clustering methods, distribution analysis, data encoders, and features of R that enable you to understand your data better and get answers to your most pressing business questions. 

This course begins with the most important and commonly used method for unsupervised learning - clustering - and explains the three main clustering algorithms - k-means, divisive, and agglomerative. Following this, you’ll study market basket analysis, kernel density estimation, principal component analysis, and anomaly detection. By working through interesting activities, you’ll explore data encoders and latent variable models. 

By the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of different anomaly detection methods, such as outlier detection, Mahalanobis distances, and contextual and collective anomaly detection.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Implement clustering methods such as k-means, agglomerative, and divisive
  • Write code in R to analyze market segmentation and consumer behavior
  • Estimate distribution and probabilities of different outcomes
  • Implement dimension reduction using principal component analysis
  • Apply anomaly detection methods to identify fraud
  • Design algorithms with R and learn how to edit or improve code

What Our Clients Say

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

Live Online - May 2020

 

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”

 

Kubernetes for App Developers - GTLFKAD

Live Online - Nov 2020

 

“Really enjoyed the course, it has been an eye opener on opportunities to steer how we approach the cloud from a IT Service Management perspective.”
