Training course for Eurostat’s staff on Data Mining

HENDYPLAN has organized a course on “Data Mining” on 17-18 November 2014 ; the course is targeted at the statistical production units of Eurostat. The instructor is Prof. Bruno Scarpa, professor at the Department of Statistical Sciences – University of Padova  (http://homes1.stat.unipd.it/bruno/)

This two-day course gives a detailed overview of statistical models for data mining, by introducing principal ideas in statistical learning and helping to understand conceptual underpinnings of methods in data mining, regression and classification. In this course we emphasize the tools useful for tackling modern-day data analysis problems and we make use of R software for practicing.
