The Statistics User Forum (SUF), supported by the Office for National Statistics, aims to be the strategic voice of users of official statistics. The Forum acts as an umbrella organisation for user groups, each of which covers a particular area across the spectrum of official statistics. Through the Forum we enable open and constructive dialogue between users and producers of official statistics and encourage communication across the user community.

    We have 1 place remaining on our popular two-day professional level course called Introduction to Machine Learning in R. This course will be held at the Royal Statistical Society on 1 & 2 March 2018. 

    Course: Introduction to Machine Learning in R

    Date: 1 & 2 March 2018

    Presenter: Doug Ashton

    Level: Professional

    CPD: 12 hours

    This is a two day course covering the application of machine-learning methodology to real-world analytics problems. The course outlines the stages involved in a machine learning analysis, and walks through how to perform them using the R programming language and the caret library. Participants will be provided with exercises to complete in R so as to gain hands-on experience in using the methods presented.

    The individual stages of: problem formulation, data preparation, feature engineering, model selection and model refinement will be walked through in detail giving participants a solid process to follow for any machine-learning analysis. This includes methods for evaluating machine-learning models in terms of a performance metric as well as assessing bias and variance.

    Delegates are expected to bring a laptop with the R software installed.
