Course Description

IBM SPSS Modeler is a data mining workbench that allows you to build predictive models quickly and intuitively without programming. Analysts typically use SPSS Modeler to analyze data by mining historical data and then deploying models to generate predictions for recent (or even real-time) data.

Overview: Modeler's New R Nodes is a series of self-paced videos. This course is divided into four parts:

    ·What are the new Modeler R Nodes and why are they an exciting addition?

    ·What is R and what are some of the best ways to learn more about it?

    ·Adding new graphics capability with R

    ·Adding new statistics capability with R

We discuss one of the exiting new features of Modeler 16. We show some R functionality in the R environment itself, but the seminar will culminate in the demonstration of R capabilites in a Modeler stream. Advice will be given on how best to develop more skills in this area, but you will have some working knowledge from these videos alone.

What are the requirements?

  • Knowledge or experience with IBM SPSS Modeler or completion of an introductory level data mining course and on the job data mining experience.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Describe the new features and why they are useful
  • Learn more R through self study
  • Add new graphics capability in Modeler
  • Add new statistics capability in Modeler

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone that has experience with IBM SPSS Modeler or has completed an introductory level data mining course and would like to learn how to use Modeler and R together.
