Certificate Course in Statistical Machine Learning using R

This course is specifically designed for those students/professionals aspiring to do their career in data science. The course intensively covers the Fundamentals of Mathematics and Statistics required to learn Machine learning along with some practical application using R Programming Language. It is scheduled to start from the 18th May 2019.

Course Duration:
It is a 3 month long course which will be mostly conducted on weekends (Saturdays & Sundays) compatible for working professionals. The sessions will be for 3 hours a day which includes theoretical background preparation along with hands on Programming with R. The maximum intake for the batch is 30 students.

Student/Professional who is Graduate/Final Year Under Graduate with a basic exposure to Mathematics and interested to pursue data science is highly encouraged to apply for the course. Note that no programming background is required to join the course. However an exposure to C++ will be an advantage.

Topics to be covered
Mathematics and Statistics play an important and integral part in data science. A very strong background in these two subjects can prove to be beneficial to students aspiring to do career in data science. With this aim the course is divided into four components:
• Introduction to R, Statistical Programming Language.
• Basic Statistics, Probability and Inference.
• Applied Linear Algebra and Matrix Computations.
• Basic Algorithms in Machine Learning.
• Design of Flex boards using Shiny in R will be discussed for Data Presentation.

Basic Algorithms in Machine Learning
The following is the list of the topics that will be covered in the above section along with the case studies.
• Simple and Multiple Linear Regression.
• Advanced Linear Regression which includes Ridge Regression, LASSO and Elastic Net.
• Logistic Regression.
• Naive Bayes Classifier.
• Clustering using K Means.
• ARIMA Modelling Technique (Time Series).
• Market Basket Analysis.
