Become a KaggleR - An Intro to R using Kaggle Competitions
R is a popular, open-source, statistical computing language and environment that turned 25 years old in 2018. Kaggle is a popular machine learning competition platform. This talk will demonstrate using R to submit solutions in two Kaggle competitions. While machine learning algorithms, like k-NN and ANN classifiers, are discussed, the primary focus will be using the built-in features of R, and additional packages, to perform exploratory data analysis, to handle missing data, and finally, to prepare and evaluate a submission.
