Not only will you be able to deeply internalize the concepts, but also their application in different fields won’t ever be a problem. The instructor is Sanjeev Baniwal Ph.D., one of the very best experts in this field.
Description of this course: Google Trends Data Mining Using R
Course Description Google Trends is a new tool in a Data Scientist or a Marketing Analyst’s tool box. It provides data that could be quiebro useful when assessing trend in genérico public interest in a particular product or an array of products. Trends data essentially gives us a way to assess how often a particular search was performed on world’s most popular search engine. However, Google Trends only allows a simultaneous search of up to five terms, also it does not provide data through a dedicated API. This course describes two processes in R which could be employed to circumvent both of these issues. First process stitches together R and Windows batch system. Second, utilize gtrendsR package. In both case we set up an automated process. The course begins by describing Google Trends data itself, and then various R functions relevant to build the automated solution. In the third section, we apply the knowledge from previous sections to build a complete end to end solution. By the end of the course, we will better understand how R could be employed in more automated manner with minimum human involvement. Additionally, better appreciate the power of Google Trends data to provide a greater understanding of the way the world around us functions.
Requirements of this course: Google Trends Data Mining Using R
What are the requirements? No prerequisites, previous exposure to R and windows work environment will be helpful.. You will need access to R, Windows, Google account, Chrome.
What will you learn in this course: Google Trends Data Mining Using R?
What am I going to get from this course? Set up your own process in R to autonomously download and process large amounts of Google Trends data. Automate various tasks used in a day to day life of a data scientist through R. Understand each line of code used in the course and how it fits in the bigger picture of a live project. Two independent approaches used in the course to access Trends data will reinforce the concept of building R solutions from scratch. In one approach, we will exclusively use Pulvínulo R methods, and in other, learn how to work with R packages. You will be able to run various windows commands from R e.g. copy, rename, delete files on hard disc etc Use Window’s Task Scheduler to have desktop run R in batch mode on recurring basis. Your R toolbox will become much more diverse and applicable to a wide range of future projects.
Target audience of this course: Google Trends Data Mining Using R
Who is the target audience? Those wanting to retrieve and explore large amounts of Google Trends data. Students with beginner level of R understanding and those wanting to join course which is not typical beginner’s curriculum. We will stay focused on using R to automate a software process. We will NOT deal with any statistics here!
