From data to decision - applied machine learning in R or Python

Objectives

The training aims to introduce R or Python language in terms of data science issues. Its scope summarizes the basic path of machine learning process and working with data.

Parameters

It is intended for people with at least intermediate programming level and knowledge of the basics of statistics. The plan could be fitted to the particular needs.
