Workshop on Predictive Analytics with R (2/2017)

About Workshop:

The increased importance to Big Data Analytics has given rise to demand for a new set of skills, which use computational techniques and analytic framework in tandem. Decision making is critically dependent on the proper use of tools and techniques. Modelling of the problem framework is a crucial initial step in the process. In its bid to empower researchers, academicians and practitioners to effectively leverage this, the Centre for Research Studies, BIMTECH is launching a two day workshop on Predictive Analytics using R.

This two day programme on predictive analytics will be based on the popular R statistical software.  It will introduce participants to the R programming eco-system using a mix of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises. This will be followed by two in-demand analytic modules, viz., ‘Text Mining and Social Media Analytics’  followed by  ‘Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modeling’.

About R:

R is a programming language and software used for statistical analysis and graphical representation. Created by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman and supported by the R foundation, it is mostly used by researchers, data miners and statisticians. It is freely available for Windows, LINUX, UNIX and Macintosh operating systems.

Proposed Dates for workshop: 16 and 17 September 2017 (Saturday and Sunday)
