Machine Learning for Beginners (in R!)

In this 3-hour intensive workshop, you will learn the basic of machine learning in R. This would be a taster session to walk through some of the basics of regression and classification and how to create models in R.

The materials of this class would be based loosely on the classes done in 2017  . Although we would not spend too much time on the basics, the workshop would be self-contained and R beginners are welcome. R beginners would receive an instruction how to setup the R environment and some materials to get you started in advance of the workshop.

In this session, Chris Choy (10+ years using R) would be teaching the workshop. He is a data scientist with experience in developing data mining solutions for clients in manufacturing, banking and retail industry. Prior to joining the business world in 2014, he earned his Dphil in Oxford with a research focus in high dimensional statistics.
