The dimension reduction and classification techniques taught in this program are helping me enormously in my work at the Bank.
I much enjoyed your text mining course last year and plan to take the deep learning one - thanks for creating it
I like the format of those courses. There is a lot to learn, but it's concentrated on the key points. For somebody working full time it beats a semester-long course.
Dr. Pruim was an outstanding instructor, extremely knowledgeable, respectful and prompt. This course has given me a strong foundation for continued learning
This course has been a life/work changer for me. Within 2 weeks of taking this class, I was able to produce far more informative plots than I ever had before. I'm inspired to take more classes and learn as much as I can about this wonderful…
I was very impressed with how well Randall Pruim interacted with the class through the discussion forum. I also was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly all the logistical "on-line" issues went. I have already signed up for another course
This course gave me a solid background on structure of databases and how to use SQL statements to query a database
This [SQL - Introduction to Database Queries course] is the single most useful course I have ever taken in regards to helping me in the workplace.
This was a real eye-opener to me. In short, a real joy to follow this course and be part of this learning process. It also helped me to see links I didn't see before where I could use different methods to improve upon.
This course is an excellent follow up to the R basic course. A lot of new and helpful material was added and contributed to a more advanced understanding of R programming
I have a much better understanding of the *apply functions, as well as using aggregate and xtabs to replicate pivot tables in Excel. This will be very helpful for the type of data analysis work I do
This course was extremely helpful in facilitating my understanding of programming in R fundamentals. I feel confident moving forward onto the next section of R programming
This was a great introduction to Programming in R. I feel like I have some basic concepts down and I am looking forward to taking more courses to keep developing my skills in this programming language. I can definitely see the potential for data analysis…
I am working for Scotiabank/International Banking-Marketing (Toronto-Canada). Since we are manipulating tons of data at the customer level for more than 27 countries, R would be the perfect complement tool (we have been using SAS) for customer analytics. I am new on this R world…
It was great to get a better sense of the Python language. The course gave a great overview of the data analysis and visualization tools.
The instructor Joris Mays was very effective, especially in the discussion board where his feedback was timely, clear and very thorough
The course, Introduction to R Programming Part Two, taught by Joris Meys was EXCELLENT! All of the course materials were extremely helpful in allowing me not only to understand the details of R programming but also to gain a solid perspective on the fundamentals of…
I found this course to be very helpful. It wasn't like other courses where you just run example code and change a few things here and there. I learned a lot and have even applied what I've learned in this course to the other course I'm enrolled in currently.…
This course will definitely be used for my work. This course should be called Intro to R for Busy People. I'm really glad I took this course and will recommend it to others.
I am now confident that I can use R and continue learning on my own. The course also helped me to explore other resources within the R community online. I'm looking forward to using R in data analysis for my masters thesis and beyond.
This is the best online course I have ever taken. Very well prepared. Covers a lot of real-life problems. Good job, thank you very much!
As a SAS programmer, I believe I will continue to use SAS for data manipulation but will utilize R when running models and exploring large data sets.
I appreciated the discussion board feedback as well as comments back on the homework assignments. Both of those things have helped me become a more efficient programmer
Both the instructor and TA were exceptionally prompt in their responses to queries. The comments and suggestions were on point. Thank you for an enjoyable, informative course
This is really a fantastic course. The materials were well done and the exercises really helped me develop and apply the concepts. Very, very well done. I will recommend it to my colleagues
As always it was a pleasure taking a course from Professor Indurkhya. This course was a model of what Statistics.com courses can be.
The subject of identifying anomalies is a central task of academic historians, and this course allowed me the welcome luxury to reflect on their nature and methods of discovery.
Using information gleaned from the course concerning a not-well-known distance measure (Gower dissimilarity) useful for cluster models that combine data from mixed variables, including nominal, ordinal, and numeric variables, I was able to refine a model I was working on for an academic conference paper.…
The two instructors are to be congratulated in putting together a jewel of a short course, one of my very favorite among the many I have taken at Statistics.com. The discussion with such experts was particularly valuable and greatly enhanced the value of the course.…
This course will help me evaluate and code speech recognition tools and develop information extraction models. It will guide me toward what to consider and keep me from falling into some traps.
I am very appreciative of the instructor and the teaching assistants for their availability and contribution to this class.
