Description : R for Business Analytics looks at some of the most common tasks performed by business analysts and helps the user navigate the wealth of information in R and its 4000 packages. With this information the reader can select the packages that can help process the analytical tasks with minimum effort and maximum usefulness. The use of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) is emphasized in this book to further cut down and bend the famous learning curve in learning R. This book is aimed to help you kick-start with analytics including chapters on data visualization, code examples on web analytics and social media analytics, clustering, regression models, text mining, data mining models and forecasting. The book tries to expose the reader to a breadth of business analytics topics without burying the user in needless depth. The included references and links allow the reader to pursue business analytics topics. This book is aimed at business analysts with basic programming skills for using R for Business Analytics. Note the scope of the book is neither statistical theory nor graduate level research for statistics, but rather it is for business analytics practitioners. Business analytics (BA) refers to the field of exploration and investigation of data generated by businesses. Business Intelligence (BI) is the seamless dissemination of information through the organization, which primarily involves business metrics both past and current for the use of decision support in businesses. Data Mining (DM) is the process of discovering new patterns from large data using algorithms and statistical methods. To differentiate between the three, BI is mostly current reports, BA is models to predict and strategize and DM matches patterns in big data. The R statistical software is the fastest growing analytics platform in the world, and is established in both academia and corporations for robustness, reliability and accuracy. The book utilizes Albert Einstein’s famous remarks on making things as simple as possible, but no simpler. This book will blow the last remaining doubts in your mind about using R in your business environment. Even non-technical users will enjoy the easy-to-use examples. The interviews with creators and corporate users of R make the book very readable. The author firmly believes Isaac Asimov was a better writer in spreading science than any textbook or journal author.

Description : Machine Learning employs techniques and theories drawn from many fields within the broad areas of mathematics, statistics, information science, and computer science, in particular from the sud-domains of machine learning, classification, cluster analysis, data mining, database, and visualization. Machine learning is perhaps the hottest thing in Silicon Valley right now, especially deep learning. We have Google's class on Tensor Flow, which teaches you everything you need to know to work in Silicon Valley's top companies. The reason why it is so hot is because it can take over many repetitive, mindless tasks. It'll make doctor better doctors, and lawyers better lawyers and it makes cars drive themselves. For example, when you're booking a taxi, you're shown how much the trip would cost. Or when you're on the trip, you're shown the path the taxi would take to reach your destination. While booking a ride on Uber, you're always told the amount of time the trip would take and how much it would cost. All of that, is Machine Learning! The overall goal of this book "Machine Learning" is to provide a broad understanding of various faces of Machine Learning environment in an integrated manner. It covers the syllabi of all technical universities in India and aboard. The first edition of this book is also been awarded by AICTE and placed in AICTE's latest Model Curriculum in Engineering & Technology as well as Emerging Technology.

Description : A map projection fundamentally impacts the map making process. Working with Map Projections: A Guide to their Selection explains why, for any given map, there isn’t a single "best" map projection. Selecting a projection is a matter of understanding the compromises and consequences of showing a 3-D space in two dimensions. It presents a clear understanding of the processes necessary to make logical decisions on selecting an appropriate map projection for a given data set. It discusses the logic needed in the selection process, why certain decisions should be made, and explains the consequences of any inappropriate decision made during the selection process. This book focuses clearly on explaining the processes involved in selecting a map projection, and how the map projection will impact the map’s ability to fulfill its purpose, uses real world datasets as the basis for the selection of an appropriate map projection, and provides illustrations of an appropriately and inappropriately selected map projection for a given data set. It takes a novel approach to discussing map projections by avoiding an extensive inventory of mathematical formulae and using mathematics of map projections that matter for many mapping tasks. It also presents information that is directly applicable to the process of selecting map projections and is not tied to a specific software package. Written by leading experts, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone studying or working with geospatial data, from high school students to seasoned professionals and will help readers successfully weigh the pros and cons of choosing one projection over another to suit the map’s intended purpose.
