Class size for this event is limited to 12 students.  If the class is sold out and you wish to be added to a waiting list, contact the event organizer.

This training course is a compact two day introduction into the foundations of data mining and business analytics as well as into the software RapidMiner. After this training course the participants will have a complete understanding of how Rapid-I software works and is used. The overall data mining process is covered as well as the foundations of the software. Participants will be able to create predictive models in standard data environments typically found within most analyst positions. Due to a high number of practical exercises, the participants will be able to transfer the gained knowledge to own data mining problems and solve them quickly and easily.

After the training course the participants will have the ability to:

  • perform basic data preparations
  • build first predictive models,
  • evaluate the model’s quality
  • score new data sets


Details

  • Target audience: users, analysts, developers, administrators
  • Previous knowledge: basic knowledge of computer programs and mathematics
  • Methods: lectures, discussions, individual and group work, exercises on realistic data.
