Certification Course on Data Modelling, Mining & Analytics with R
One Week Certification Course on Data Modelling, Mining & Analytics
23-28 November 2015, ICFOSS, Technopark, Trivandrum
R is today widely recognized as the world's most powerful statistical
software environment. As a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), R has
been developed and maintained by a community of passionate enthusiasts,
who have also been developing modules for extending the capabilities of
the base R package. The R Ecosystem is today capable of not only of the
most sophisticated statistical analyses, but also is able to communicate
with other software packages ranging from spreadsheets, graphing tools
and typesetting tools such as LaTeX.
Data Mining and Analytics is a mainstream business function today
that employs some of the more sophisticated modelling, analysis and
visualization techniques available. Once the domain of expensive
proprietary tools, R and its associated tools are today capable of
carrying out these at a fraction of the costs, in a more flexible and
extensible manner when compared to proprietary tools. Besides, as a FOSS
tool, R avoids the problems of vendor lock-in as well.
The One Week Course will expose participants to basic and
intermediate topics in the use of R in Data Mining, Analytics and
Visualization. The programme is directed at students, teachers,
researchers, and IT professionals. Participants are required to bring
their laptops with Ubuntu installed.
