Description

The R language is best suited for statistical computations and visualization. Even if you do not have any prior experience in programming or statistical software, this Learning Path will help you get you up and running not only with the basics of R but also statistically modeling.

This learning journey begin by introducing R and setting things up so that you are ready to go using RStudio, the associated IDE. Then, you will look at R as a programming language and see how the standard things are done in it. You will obtain a dataset and then learn how to clean the dataset. Data cleaning constitutes almost 80% of data analysis. You will also explore discrete distributions, continuous distributions, and random number generation. Finally, you will see how to model your data and discover hypothesis testing. You will dive into descriptive statistics and graphs, parametric and nonparametric statistical methods, correlation and regression analysis, and time-series analysis.

By the end of this Learning path, you will be able to use R to model the different types of data with ease.

Dr. Samik Sen is a Theoretical Physicist and loves hard problems to think about. After his Phd, which was about developing computational methods to solve problems for which no solutions existed, he began thinking about how to tackle the maths problem while lecturing. He developed algorithms to generate problem sets and solutions, and learned how to create video lessons. He has developed a large Facebook community teaching school maths around Ireland, with associated e-learning products and YouTube channel. Samik is currently fascinated by machine and deep Learning.He has developed a machine learning system which is performing better than he can himself which was the hope.

Olgun Aydin is a PhD candidate at Department of Statistics, Mimar Sinan University. He has been working on Deep Learning for his PhD thesis. Also working as Data Scientist.He is so familiar with Big Data technologies like Hadoop, Spark and able to use Hive, Impala. He is a big fan of R. Also he really loves to work with Shiny, SparkR.He has many academic papers and proceedings about applications of statistics on different disciplines. Mr. Olgun really loves statistic and loves to investigate new methods, share his experience with people.

Who is the target audience?
• This Learning Path is for R developers and data analysts who have basic knowledge of maths and statistics.
