RDataMining Tutorial on Machine Learning with R

posted Jun 5, 2017, 11:30 PM by Yanchang Zhao   [ updated Jun 5, 2017, 11:33 PM ]

I have run a tutorial on Machine Learning with R for the Melbourne Data Science Week in June 2017, which consists of four sessions:

  • R Programming
  • Association Rule Mining with R
  • Text Mining with R
  • Social Network Analysis with R

All materials of the above tutorial, incl. PDF slides, datasets and R scripts can be downloaded as a single ZIP archive at

http://www.rdatamining.com/training/medascin/MLwR.zip

 

How to use it:

  1. Decompress the ZIP archive, and you will find file and folders below:
    • MLwR.Rproj: RStudio project file
    • code: R scripts
    • data: datasets
    • docs: PDF slides
    • figures: charts
  2. Open the “MLwR.Rproj” file with RStudio
  3. Open each PDF slides file (in folder “docs”) and run its corresponding R scripts (in folder “code”) to learn each topic

Detailed instructions for the tutorial are available at http://www.rdatamining.com/training/medascin
