Practical Machine Learning in R – a new book by ISSEL

A new book is published by the ISSEL group. The book is about quickly entering the world of creating machine learning models in R. The theory is kept to minimum and there are examples for each of the major algorithms for classification, clustering, features engineering and association rules. The book is a compilation of the leaflets the authors give to their students during the practice labs, in the courses of Pattern Recognition and Data Mining, in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
