• classification trees (rpart)

• feed-forward neural networks and multinomial regression

• random forests

• boosting for classification and regression

• bagging for classification and regression

• penalized regression modelling (lasso/ridge regularized generalized linear models)

• model based recursive partitioning (trees with statistical models at the nodes)

• training and evaluation will be done through the use of the caret and ROCR packages

Course duration: 2 days.
