Books for Machine Learning with R

R is a powerful platform for data analysis and machine learning.

The trial of real work will force you to learn what you must learn to solve your problem.A good reference can help you answer your “how do I…”

It walks you through the platform from installation, basic operations, data analysis and even some machine learning algorithms.

There is a wealth of machine learning algorithms implemented in R, many by the academics and their teams that actually developed them in the first place.

It is a great place to start, but one thing that I think it could do better is point out canonical packages and to elaborate more on some of the wrapper packages available like caret.

Parts 2 and 3 look at regression and classification algorithms and the final Part covers more advanced topics like feature selection.

Following chapters look at cross validation, model selection before moving into non-linear regression, decision trees, SVM and finishing up with unsupervised methods.

Part 2 starts off with model evaluation and works through models in increasing complexity through k-NN, Naive Bayes, Linear Regression, clustering, association rules and SVM.

A good feature of this text are the step-by-step sequences provided in each chapter, providing an actionable framework around the case studies.

These include: predicting algae blooms, stock market returns, fraudulent transactions and classifying microarray samples.

Each study explores various different data preparation, model building and model evaluation methods.

The chapters work through the key machine learning methods using R with smaller case studies throughout.

The book finishes with some larger case studies on sentiment analysis in text and modeling network data.

After the introductory material on loading and handling data in part 1, the standard machine learning algorithms are covered in part 2.
