Data Science:Data Mining & Natural Language Processing in R
What you'll learn
  • Perform the most important pre-processing tasks needed prior to machine learning in R
  • Carry out data visualization in R
  • Use machine learning for unsupervised classification in R
  • Carry out supervised learning by building classification and regression models in R
  • Evaluate the accuracy of supervised machine learning algorithms and compare their performance in R
  • Carry out sentiment analysis using text data in R





  • Keen interest in learning about data science and data mining
  • Keen interest in mining and deriving insights from text data
  • Should have prior experience of using R and RStudio
  • Should be able to install and read in packages in R
  • Prior exposure to the principles of statistical data analysis , data visualization and summarizing in R will be beneficial but not necessary



Learn to carry out pre-processing, visualization and machine learning tasks such as: clustering, classification and regression in R. You will be able to mine insights from text data and Twitter to give yourself & your company a competitive edge.    


My name is Minerva Singh and I am an Oxford University MPhil (Geography and Environment) graduate. I recently finished a PhD at Cambridge University (Tropical Ecology and Conservation).
I have several years of experience in analyzing real life data from different sources using data science related techniques and producing publications for international peer reviewed journals. Over the course of my research I realized almost all the R data science courses and books out there do not account for the multidimensional nature of the topic and use data science interchangeably with machine learning.
This gives students an incomplete knowledge of the subject. Unlike other courses out there, we are not going to stop at machine learning. We will also cover data mining, web-scraping, text mining and natural language processing along with mining social media sites like Twitter and Facebook for text data.


You’ll start by absorbing the most valuable R Data Science basics and techniques. I use easy-to-understand, hands-on methods to simplify and address even the most difficult concepts in R.
My course will help you implement the methods using real data obtained from different sources. Many courses use made-up data that does not empower students to implement R based data science in real life. After taking this course, you’ll easily use packages like caret, dplyr to work with real data in R. You will also learn to use the common NLP packages to extract insights from text data.  
I will even introduce you to some very important practical case studies - such as detecting loan repayment and tumor detection using machine learning. You will also extract tweets pertaining to trending topics and analyze their underlying sentiments and identify topics with Latent Dirichlet allocation. With this Powerful All-In-One R Data Science course, you’ll know it all: visualization, stats, machine learning, data mining, and neural networks!  

The underlying motivation for the course is to ensure you can apply R based data science on real data into practice today. Start analyzing data for your own projects, whatever your skill level and Impress your potential employers with actual examples of your data science projects.


(a) This course will take you from a basic level to performing some of the most common advanced data science techniques using the powerful R based tools.   

(b) Equip you to use R to perform the different exploratory and visualization tasks for data modelling.   

(c) Introduce you to some of the most important machine learning concepts in a practical manner such that you can apply these concepts for practical data analysis and interpretation.   (d) You will get a strong understanding of some of the most important data mining, text mining and natural language processing techniques.   

(e) & You will be able to decide which data science techniques are best suited to answer your research questions and applicable to your data and interpret the results.

More Specifically, here's what's covered in the course:

  • Getting started with R, R Studio and Rattle for implementing different data science techniques

  • Data Structures and Reading in Pandas, including CSV, Excel, JSON, HTML data.

  • How to Pre-Process and “Wrangle” your R data by removing NAs/No data, handling conditional data, grouping by attributes..etc

  • Creating data visualizations like histograms, boxplots, scatterplots, barplots, pie/line charts, and MORE

  • Statistical analysis, statistical inference, and the relationships between variables.

  • Machine Learning, Supervised Learning, & Unsupervised Learning in R

  • Neural Networks for Classification and Regression

  • Web-Scraping using R

  • Extracting text data from Twitter and Facebook using APIs

  • Text mining

  • Common Natural Language Processing techniques such as sentiment analysis and topic modelling

We will spend some time dealing with some of the theoretical concepts related to data science. However, majority of the course will focus on implementing different techniques on real data and interpret the results.

After each video you will learn a new concept or technique which you may apply to your own projects.

All the data and code used in the course has been made available free of charge and you can use it as you like. You will also have access to additional lectures that are added in the future for FREE.



Who this course is for:
  • Students wishing to learn practical data science and machine learning in R
  • Students wishing to learn the underlying theory and application of data mining in R
  • Students interested in obtaining/mining data from sources such as Twiter
  • Students interested in pre-processing and visualizing real life data
  • Students wishing to analyze and derive insights from text data
  • Students interested in learning basic text mining and Natural Language Processing (NLP) in R
