Choose your tool of choice -  R, Python, or Analytic Solver Data Mining.

Using Analytic Solver Data Mining - an Excel add-in (previously XLMiner):

  1. Predictive Analytics 1:  Machine Learning Tools 
  2. Predictive Analytics 2:  Neural Nets and Regression
  3. Predictive Analytics 3: Dimension Reduction, Clustering and Association Rules


Using R:

  1. Predictive Analytics 1:  Machine Learning Tools - with R
  2. Predictive Analytics 2:  Neural Nets and Regression - with R
  3. Predictive Analytics 3: Dimension Reduction, Clustering and Association Rules - with R


Using Python:

  2. Predictive Analytics 2:  Neural Nets and Regression - with Python
  3. Predictive Analytics 3: Dimension Reduction, Clustering and Association Rules - with Python

 

You'll master:

 

Machine-learning and statistical algorithms for predicting labeled data:

  • Trees
  • K-nearest-neighbors
  • Neural nets
  • Naive Bayes
  • Linear and logistic regression

Preparatory and exploratory methods:

  • Visualization
  • Dimension reduction (principal components)

Unsupervised methods for use with unlabeled data:

  • Clustering
  • Market basket analysis
  • Recommender systems

The program includes work with numerous real data projects, ending with a case study that combines multiple methods. 

 

Here's an example of predictive analytics at work at Pandora, the music-streaming service (excerpt from Data Mining for Business Analytics, by Shmueli, Bruce and Patel, who are also the creators of these courses).
