Explore how R can provide insights to your data: Go from statistics and analysis to full deep data science.

Covered topics:

  • Structure your data and most importantly - Wrangle^ visualize and explore data.
  • Learn from your data - Gain insights and information from data. Play with your data - Manipulate and clean it. Let your data do the talking - Visualize data using ggplot.
  • Deploy the most popular machine algorithms like Random forest^ and Decision trees to build powerful models.
  • Learn to explore data in R^ using summarizations^ aggregations^ and visualizations.
  • Learn to extract data stored in different formats^ transform it if necessary^ and load it into R ready for exploration.
  • Extend exploration via summarization and aggregation to look at patterns and trends within and between data groups.
  • Facilitate data exploration with an introduction to the dplyr package.
  • Produce visually appealing plots to demonstrate the insights you have gained.


Data is everywhere and growing faster than ever before! It has now become a challenge to deal with such huge amount of data as it is highly time-consuming. This has created a rising demand for people who can mine and interpret data. There is enormous value in data processing and analysis - and that is where a data scientist steps into the spotlight. R can help you work with the data you already have. You can do this by learning R data commands^ exploring your data^ aggregating the data into summary information^ and visualizing the results to share with others.

This comprehensive 2-in-1 course follows a step-by-step practical approach to getting grips with the basics of Reinforcement Learning with R and build your own intelligent systems. Initially^ you’ll learn how to implement Reinforcement Learning techniques using the R programming language. You’ll also learn concepts and key algorithms in Reinforcement Learning. Moving further^ you’ll dive into Temporal Difference Learning^ an algorithm that combines Monte Carlo methods and dynamic programming. Finally^ you’ll implement typical applications for model-based and model-free RL.

Towards the end of this course^ you ll get insights into your data with R: Break down data^ summarize information^ and produce visually appealing plots to demonstrate powerful insights.

Contents and Overview

This training program includes 2 complete courses^ carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course^ Programming for Data Science with R^ covers statistics and analysis to full deep data science. This course will help candidates having basic knowledge of R Programming elevate to the next level. R can be used to tease actionable insights out of gigabytes of data^ and this course will show you exactly how to do it. Here^ we will be building on the advanced and efficient ways of doing different parts of analytics- right from data cleaning^ visualizing to building high performing models You’ll start your journey by loading data^ visualizing it and interpreting it while providing intuitive solutions. Further^ you will learn to apply machine learning algorithms to real-world problems in R. By the end of the course^ get geared up to tackle real-life data challenges by analyzing complex datasets. This^ in turn^ will bring out insights that companies can convert into actions.

The second course^ Hands-On Data Exploration with R^ covers exploring how R can provide insights to your data. This course will teach you how to put R to practical use in a world where decisions are data-driven. We start off by understanding how to prepare your data for analysis. You will learn how to organize data in a way that is easily workable. We will then explore data and understand how easy it is to gain insights from it by summarizing^ aggregating^ and visualizing data in R. By the end of this course^ you will be equipped with the skills you need to explore a Retail^ Telecom^ or any other dataset handed to you^ break down its key feature into easily digestible information^ summarize this information^ and produce visually appealing plots to demonstrate these insights.

Towards the end of this course^ you ll get insights into your data with R: Break down data^ summarize information^ and produce visually appealing plots to demonstrate powerful insights.
