By the end of this project-based course, you will learn the basics of the R programming language. I will start with the basics such as installing new library packages with CRAN, until we get you started with some data manipulations tasks. I'll introduce you to the most commonly used statistical functions of R, and finally we'll code a very simple Neural Network in R which we'll analyze cereal using an open-source dataset from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). This project will provide valuable experience in your Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence development journey. Familiarity with programming fundamentals is heavily recommended. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
