Continuing Education Workshop: Foundations of Modern Predictive Analytics

Starts:  Oct 2, 2017 9:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Oct 3, 2017 5:00 PM (ET)
Learn data mining techniques and tools that will allow you to make the link between business needs and your technical skills. This intensive Hands-On course is taught by James Drew who has over 30 years experience and developed by the largest organization of analytics professionals, INFORMS.

As a course participant, you will learn the concepts and practice of a selection of Modern Predictive Analytics (MPA) techniques that you can immediately apply in your everyday analytic life. Through a blend of technical concepts, business examples and real problems, you will learn how to make the link between business needs and your technical skills.

The best way to make this link between business problems and MPA techniques is to actively perform MPA in real business scenarios. The use of readily available commercial software, which you will download onto your laptop prior to class, will allow you to experience the practical effects of MPA concepts and their business application. Although this is neither a software course nor an extensive MPA techniques overview, you will learn how to apply R (a widely used open-source package) to a span of problems.

You will also have ample problem solving practice to prepare you to use your new software and analytic expertise in your own work.
