Text analytics is a crucial skill set in nearly all contexts where data science has an impact, whether that be customer analytics, fraud detection, automation or fintech.

In this course, you will learn a toolbox of skills and techniques, starting from effective data preparation and stretching right through to advanced modelling with deep-learning and neural-network approaches such as word2vec.

This course teaches skills for handling both clustering and classification problems and identifies potential pitfalls in both areas, with an emphasis on linking intuition and technique. All sessions are taught in R, with advice given on the packages available and how they can be effectively used.

Earlybird pricing is available until 7 August 2018.

Testimonials

Having studied stats at Uni I was surprised how far the field has progressed in the last few years, particularly in the area of big data. The great thing about Eugene’s course is I left with a sense that I was up to date with the latest big data modelling concepts but more importantly could also deploy them with some confidence using R. Eugene also made it clear he was available to answer questions after the course, so you are not left hanging. I would absolutely recommend this!
—Damon Rasheed, CEO, Rate Detective

For someone who does not come from an IT background R is a terrifying program. Before doing the Introduction to R course I had previously done other courses in R but always found myself in over my head because they assumed a high level of program experience (even course that required no prior programming knowledge). This course is not like that at all. It starts at ground zero and teaches you everything you need to know to be able to use R confidently in your everyday workplace. It is a must attend for anyone who wants use R!
—Alix Duncan

Data science can be a challenging topic but Eugene’s “Introduction to Machine Learning” course turns complex statistical models into plain English. The course contents and presentation were accessible and I enjoyed the mixture of hands-on rattle() exercises, the challenge of building multiple models with real life data, and the salient theory whiteboard discussions created many “aha” moments.

It was a great introductory course and it gave me with a better grasp of Machine Learning in general, a great framework for thinking about it and practical hands-on skills that I can put to immediate use. I wish I had done this course sooner.
—Charl Swart, Director of Business Operations, Unisys Credit Services
