Posted: September 5, 2015 in News, Projects, Uncategorized

MachineLearning_book_cover_smallI’m very proud (and relieved) to announce that my year-long+ book project is finally done! “Machine Learning and Data Science: An Introduction to Statistical Learning Methods with R” will be available later this year from Technics Publications. The book provides an introduction to the entire data science process, highlighting the ways that machine learning can be used to solve business problems. Both supervised and unsupervised statistical learning techniques are included. The R statistical programming language is used throughout. Here is the table of contents:


Chapter 1: Machine Learning Overview

Chapter 2: Data Access

Chapter 3: Data Munging

Chapter 4: Exploratory Data Analysis

Chapter 5: Regression

Chapter 6: Classification

Chapter 7: Evaluating Model Performance

Chapter 8: Unsupervised Learning

The book is perfect for newbies just entering the data science field who wish to quickly get up to speed with the technology. I plan to use the book for the introductory courses I teach for corporations and universities. You can pre-order the book on Amazon HERE.
