Examine the latest technological advancements in building a scalable machine learning model with Big Data using R. This book shows you how to work with a machine learning algorithm and use it to build a ML model from raw data. All practical demonstrations will be explored in R, a powerful programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. The various packages and methods available in R will be used to explain the topics. For every machine learning algorithm covered in this book, a 3-D approach of theory, case-study and practice will be given. And where appropriate, the mathematics will be explained through visualization in R. This new paradigm of teaching machine learning will bring about a radical change in perception for many of those who think this subject is difficult to learn. Though theory sometimes looks difficult, especially when there is heavy mathematics involved, the seamless flow from the theoretical aspects to example-driven learning provided in this book makes it easy for someone to connect the dots..
