Introduces my Github repo providing R code to accompany the book “Real-World Machine Learning”.

Introducing rwml-R

The book “Real-World Machine Learning” attempts to prepare the reader for the
realities of machine learning. It covers a basic framework for
machine-learning projects, then it dives into extended examples that show how
that basic framework can be applied in realistic situations. It attempts to
provide the “hidden wisdom” on how to go about implementing products and
solutions based on machine learning. The book is a relatively easy read and
definitely worth the investment in time, but all of the supplied code is
contained in
iPython notebooks. I’m working through the book, reproducing all of the code
listings and figures using R markdown, and I’m posting
the results in a github repo: rwml-R.

Example: Mosaic Plot in Figure 2.12

To reproduce the mosaic plot in Figure 2.12 of the book, I use the vcd
package which contains a plethora of excellent tools for exploring categorical
data. The below mosaic plot shows the relationship between passenger gender
and survival in the supplied Titanic Passengers dataset.

Plot generated by above code
