R is a language that has become one of the most popular tools for manipulating, visualizing and analyzing data. While there are many R courses, learning these skills can involve a steep learning curve, especially for people with no experience in programming or data analysis. This two-day remote course (delivered via Zoom) aims to help with this initial difficulty by equipping learners with essential skills in using R, including data wrangling and plotting.

The course topics include data importing and exporting, handling real-life data sets and creating publication-ready plots with R. The topics will be covered using both hands-on teaching and independent exercises.

An online course with 10 lectures offering a practical introduction to machine learning, including classification, regression, dimensionality reduction and unsupervised learning. Topics covered include linear classification and regression, nearest neighbor methods, support vector machines, decision trees, neural networks, clustering, and anomaly detection.
