** Appendix to Session 8: Intro to Text Mining in R, ML Estimation + Binomial Logistic Regression**

Welcome to Introduction to R for Data Science, Session 8: Intro to Text Mining in R, ML Estimation + Binomial Logistic Regression [*Web-scraping with tm.plugin.webmining. The tm package corpora structures: assessing document metadata and content. Typical corpus transformations and Term-Document Matrix production. A simple binomial regression model with tf-idf scores as features and its shortcommings due to sparse data. Reminder: Maximum Likelihood Estimation with Nelder-Mead from optim(). ]*

The course is co-organized by Data Science Serbia and Startit. You will find all course material (R scripts, data sets, SlideShare presentations, readings) on these pages.
