What is Advanced predictive modeling?

Predictive modeling is a technique that uses mathematical and computational methods to predict
an eventAdvanced predictive modeling in R Image or outcome. A mathematical approach uses an equation-based model that describes the phenomenon under consideration. The model is used to forecast an outcome at some future state or time based upon changes to the model inputs. he model parameters help explain how model inputs influence the outcome. Examples include time series regression models for predicting airline traffic volume or predicting fuel efficiency based on a linear regression model of engine speed versus load.

About R Programming Language

R is an open-source programming language that is widely used as a statistical software and data analysis tool. R generally comes with the Command-line interface. R is available across widely used platforms like Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. Also, the R programming language is the latest cutting-edge tool.

R programming language is an implementation of the S programming language. It also combines with lexical scoping semantics inspired by Scheme.

Why R Programming Language?

  • R programming is used as a leading tool for machine learning, statistics, and
    data analysis.Edureka Image Why R Programming Language Objects, functions, and packages can easily be created by R programming.
  • It’s a platform-independent language. This means it can be applied to all operating systems.
  • It’s an open-source free language. That means anyone can install it in any organization without purchasing a license.
  • R programming language is not only a statistic package but also allows us to integrate with other languages (C, C++). Thus, you can easily interact with many data sources and statistical packages.
  • The R programming language has a vast community of users and it’s growing day by day.
  • R is currently one of the most requested programming languages in the Data Science
    a job market that makes it the hottest trend nowadays.


About this course:

This course will introduce you to some of the most widely used predictive modeling techniques and their core principles. Predictive modeling is emerging as a competitive strategy across many business sectors and can set apart high performing companies. Models such as multiple linear regression, logistic regression, auto-regressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), decision trees, and neural networks are frequently used in solving predictive analytics problems. Regression models will let you gain expertise to understand the relationships among these variables and how their relationships can be exploited to make decisions.
