Introduction to Machine Learning with the Tidyverse

These workshops provide a gentle introduction to supervised machine learning: concepts, methods, and R code. Participants learn how to train and assess predictive models with several common machine learning algorithms, as well as how to do feature engineering to improve the predictive accuracy of their models. We focus on teaching intuitive explanations of the models and best practices for predictive modeling. Along the way, we introduce several core tidymodels packages, which provide a grammar for modeling that makes it easy to the right thing, and harder to accidentally do the wrong thing.
