Packts Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video beforeData mining is a growing demand on the market as the world is generating data at an increasing pace. R is a popular programming language for statistics. It is very useful for day-to-day data analysis tasks. Data mining is a very broad topic and takes some time to learn. This Learning Path will help you to understand the mathematical basics quickly, and then you can directly apply what youve learned in R. This Learning Path explores data mining techniques, showing you how to apply different mining concepts to various statistical and data applications in a wide range of fields. This Learning Path is the complete learning process for data-happy people. We begin with a thorough introduction to data mining and how R makes it easy with its many packages. We then move on to exploring data mining techniques, showing you how to apply different mining concepts to various statistical and data applications in a wide range of fields using Rs vast set of algorithms. The goal of this Learning Path is to help you understand the basics of data mining with R and then get you working on real-world datasets and projects. This Learning Path is authored by some of the best in their fields.
