RapidMiner Basics Part 1
Two-day class from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lunch and afternoon snacks will be provided.
Be sure to check out our RapidMiner Basics Part 2 course being held in the same location on directly following this class.
RapidMiner Basics Part 1 is a two day course focusing on data mining and predictive analytics with RapidMiner Studio. Over the course of two days students will explore a clean, simplified business use case and build a strong analytical model while becoming familiar with the graphical interface and all of the products features and functionality.
The course is structured in a mentoring fashion where the entire group performs as members of a data science team. After successfully completing this course, participants will have a solid understanding of how RapidMiner Studio functions. Participants will be able to prepare data, create and validate predictive models, and will be ready to extend their knowledge to advanced topics such as RapidMiner Basics Part 2 and RapidMiner Server: Web Apps and Deployment.
Practical exercises during the course prepare students to take the knowledge gained and apply to their own respective data mining problems, solving them quickly and easily. Since the class labs are hands-on and performed on the participants’ personal laptops, students will take actual classwork home with them, which will provide a jumpstart to the real world.
