We are pleased to announce that our Data Science For Business (#DS4B) Course (HR 201) is OFFICIALLY OPEN! This course is for intermediate to advanced data scientists looking to apply H2O and LIME to a real-world binary classification problem in an organization: Employee Attrition. If you are interested applying data science for business in a real-world setting with advanced tools using a client-proven system that delivers ROI to the organization, then this is the course for you. For a limited time we are offering 15% off enrollment.

What You Learn

Watch the 2-Minute DS4B Course Overview.

The course is large in scope, which is necessary to go into the level of detail to cover:

  • How to understand a business problem

  • How to tie data science to financial impact

  • How to code effectively for data science

  • How to use the tidyverse and program with Tidy Eval

  • How to implement data science project management frameworks

  • How to manage an analysis using an R Project

  • How to use H2O, LIME, and various other R packages that are amazingly useful

“It’s well worth the investment you or your organization are making. I designed this course after what I wished I had when I was first seeking to apply data science in business.”

Tools And Techniques Used

We’ll apply the following tools and techniques using a real-world problem:

  • Business Science Problem Framework for data science project management

  • Costing attrition and developing data science code workflows in R

  • H2O for automated machine learning (AutoML)

  • LIME for black-box model feature explanation

  • Correlation Analysis for pre-modeling feature importance

  • Recommendation Logic for assisting executives and managers with data-driven decision-making

  • recipes for preprocessing data for machine learning algorithms

  • GGally and skimr for exploratory data analysis

  • Tidy Eval for programming in the tidyverse

  • And more!

There’s a lot that HR 201 offers. Learn more on the Course Homepage. Be sure to take a peek at the Course Curriculum to get a glimpse of what’s inside.

H2O Highlights

We’ll use H2O to generate a high performance classifier that predicts employee attrition.

H2O Leaderboard Visualization

We’ll measure the classifier performance using visualizations that data scientists and executives need.

What You Need To Get Started

A basic (novice) knowledge of R, dplyr, and ggplot2 is our expectation. We’ll take care of the rest. If you are unsure, there is a proficiency quiz to check your baseline. Also, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee if the course is too difficult or if you are not completely satisfied.

Education Assistance

Many employers offer assistance to cover the cost of continuous education. Begin discussions with your employer immediately if this is available to you and you are interested in this course. They will benefit from you taking this course.
