Event Details

1. Course description.


The powerful statistical capabilities of R programming language include a large selection of machine learning algorithms which can be applied to classification, clustering and predictive analytics. This course explores practical applications of the most frequently used machine learning methods such a k-Nearest Neighbours, Naive Bayes, Regressions and Decision Trees algorithms through R statistical environment. It also provides a good introduction to more advanced techniques e.g. Artificial Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines.  The course aims to achieve the following goals:


  • to introduce attendees to a variety of machine learning algorithms for classification and forecasting, and their practical applications through R language,
  • to present numerous third-party packages which facilitate ML application in R,
  • to guide the attendees through a range of R functions specific to each machine learning algorithm and implement them in practical scenarios with real-world data,
  • to explain the importance of Machine Learning model performance and ways of its evaluation and improvement,
  • to implement selected Machine Learning algorithms using R and H2O framework.


The course will be presented by Simon Walkowiak - an author of "Big Data Analytics with R" and Mind Project's expert in Big Data architecture for predictive modelling. Simon has delivered numerous "Big Data Methods in R" training courses at various institutions, financial/business organisations, governmental departments and UK universities (including Big Data & Analytics Summer School organised by the Institute for Analytics and Data Science). He is also a former Data Curator at the UK Data Archive - the largest socio-economic digital data depository in Europe.


2. Programme. 


The course will run for three days from 9:30am until ~5:00pm on each day and will consist of alternating lecture-style presentations and practical tutorials. The example datasets used during tutorial sessions will come from social sciences, economics and business fields, however the contents may vary depending on specific interests of participants (based on the Participant's Skills Inventory). There will be two 15-minute coffee/tea breaks and one 1-hour lunch break on each day.


3. What is included?


Apart from the contents of the course, Mind Project will provide the participants with the following:


  • a digital (USB memory stick) Course Manual including all presentation slides, R course codes and a list of reference books and online resources,
  • additional home exercises and all data sets available to download,
  • Wi-Fi access,
  • Central London location - at the Ironmongers' Hall, next to the Barbican station and the Museum of London,
  • networking opportunity,
  • Mind Project course attendance certificate.


4. Further instructions.


  • In order to fully benefit from the Seminar, we recommend that attendees bring their personal laptops to the session with the most recent version of R and R Studio software installed and at least one of the following web browsers: Chrome, Safari and/or Internet Explorer. As R is a free environment you can download it directly from website and R Studio is available at Please contact us should you have any questions or issues with the installation process. No specific R packages are required before the course (the course tutors will explain this during the training).
  • This course is targeted at users with some R experience (preferably at Intermediate level) and interest in Machine Learning algorithms. Our “Applied Data Science in R” training course is a good pre-requisite to participate in this course. 
  • Participants are encouraged to complete the online Participant's Skills Inventory available at to allow Mind Project and our course tutors to customise the contents of the course depending on the level of participants' knowledge and their areas of interest. The data obtained through the Participant's Skills Inventory will be held fully-confidential and will only be used to provide a quality data analysis training.
  • The deadline for registrations on this training course is Sunday, 6th of November 2016 at 18:00 London (UK) time. However, Mind Project reserves the right to end the registration process earlier if all places are booked before the deadline.
