The purpose of this course is to present researches and scientists with R machine learning techniques for the analysis of large data sets.
The course, held by data analytics experts, will consist of introductory lectures on Machine Learning techniques and R programming. Examples of parallel R programming will be shown. Participants will use R software for lab exercises using Cineca HPC facilities.
Machine Learning techniques
R parallel packages
Students and researchers with different backgrounds, looking for technologies and methods to analyze large amount of data.
Participants must have basic statistics knowledge and some programming experience (in any language) is recommended. Participants should be also familiar with basic Linux commands since some of them will be used in the course.
