  • Course Machine Learning with R : Content

    In the course Machine Learning with R you will learn how to apply the R language and the R libraries in modeling projects and machine learning. Machine Learning is part of artificial intelligence and concerns the study of algorithms that automatically improve based on experience. Machine learning algorithms create a model based on training data and can then make predictions about new data.

    Review R

    First of all, a review discusses the fundamentals of R such as data types and functions. Then a number of important libraries such as dplyr and ggplot2 are treated.

    Machine Learning

    Next the principles of machine learning, building models based on data and the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning are explained.


    Linear regression and logistic regression and the differences between them are discussed. Then attention is paid to how models can be checked for accuracy by looking at summaries, coefficients and plots.

    Functional R

    Subsequently the course covers how functional programming techniques in R can be applied. Here other solutions for iteration through various map and other functions are discussed.

    Sparklyr Intro

    Attention is also paid to the access of Apache Spark from R by means of a distributed data frame implementation with operations such as selection, filtering and aggregation.


    Visualization of data in interactive web applications directly from R via the Shiny package is also on the program.

    Decision Trees

    Next the course Machine Learning with R discusses Decision Trees. This Machine Learning algorithm is based on classification.

    Other Algorithms

    Finally the course ends with the discussion of various other Machine Learning algorithms such as Naive Bayes, Principal Component Analysis and Support Vector Machines.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
