R Live Class – Data Mining with R

May 17-18, Legnano (Milan)


This course introduces some of most important and popular techniques in data-mining applications with R.
Data mining is the computational process of discovering patterns in large data sets.
During the two-days course we will review a wide variety of techniques to catch information from big amount of data: Dimensionality reduction, Clustering, Classification and Prediction examples will be presented and deepened.

Course organization

The course will start with an introduction to basic methods for data description. After that, we will review the most popular techniques for data/dimensionality reduction, as Multidimensional Scaling, Principal Components Analysis, Correspondence Analysis. Next, we will focus on methods for searching for “natural subgroups” within data, as Hierachical/non hierarchical Cluster Analysis, Gaussian Mixtures Models.

The end of first day and the begin of second day will present techniques for classification analysis (Linear/Quadratic Discriminant Analysis, Logistic Regression, K-Nearest-Neighborhood,…).

Finally, in remaining part of second day, we will review some techniques for variables selection, collinearity reduction, and best prediction for regression models (PCA regresssion, Ridge Regression, Lasso Regression, Elastic-Net regression, ..)


Euro 800 + VAT


  • Univariate Descriptive Statistics
