Machine Learning/Data Mining in R

          

Patricia Hoffman and Mike Bowles teach a set of Machine Learning / Data Mining classes using R starting in January, in Silicon Valley.

From: Tricia Hoffman
Date: Dec 5, 2010

Patricia Hoffman Mike Bowles and I are teaching a set of Machine Learning / Data Mining classes using R starting in January. We have been teaching these classes for about a year at the Hacker Dojo. At the bottom of this email are links to the different classes and more details about them.

People can sign up for the beginning class (Machine Learning 101) here:
