Course Description

This online machine learning course is perfect for those who have a solid basis in R and statistics, but are complete beginners with machine learning. After a broad overview of the discipline's most common techniques and applications, you'll gain more insight into the assessment and training of different machine learning models. The rest of the course is dedicated to a first reconnaissance with three of the most basic machine learning tasks: classification, regression and clustering.

Clustering 

As an unsupervised learning technique, clustering requires a different approach than the ones you have seen in the previous chapters. How can you cluster? When is a clustering any good? All these questions will be answered; you'll also learn about k-means clustering and hierarchical clustering along the way. At the end of this chapter and our machine learning video tutorials, you’ll have a basic understanding of all the main principles.
