Introduction to R Programming on Sports Data
Introduction to R Programming on Sports Data. I want to show you how easy it is to create predictive models using sports data
The name of this course is Introduction to R Programming on Sports Data. The knowledge you will get with this indescribable online course is astonishing. I want to show you how easy it is to create predictive models using sports data.
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 Jerry Kim, one of the very best experts in this field.
Description of this course: Introduction to R Programming on Sports Data
Course Description Are you interested in learning about data analysis and machine learning, but don’t know where to start? Are you interested in sports and curious to know how analytics can be applied to sports? In the game of football, are you curious as which positions are the most important (other than the quarterback)? If so, you’ve come to the right course! In this course, I will show you how easy it is to use the statistical software program R Studio in order to use data from the NFL to answer the question of which positions matter the most in the game of football! I will work you through this project so you learn about R by doing, as opposed to watching boring lectures that cover theory without any applications My hope is that going over this project will provide the interest and motivation necessary for you to answer your own statistics and data-related questions using the concepts I cover in this course. I want you to become proactive instead of just being spectators and consumers
