Just wanted to show my work and give you my thoughts on this project, which concludes finishing the entire Data Analyst in R pathway . I’ll probably give my thoughts on the whole R pathway in a later post. Going back to the project, I found it challenging from the standpoint of understanding the theory behind each step (particularly in regards to Hyperparameter Tuning). Although it was reassuring when I talked to a few software engineers I know that works in a FinTech and at Shopify that it’s pretty much guesswork.
Obviously what was covered in this section was a good intro into Machine Learning, but you’ll definitely need to do more work outside of it to really get a better understanding. My best help came from a youtube channel of a data scientist working at RStudio found here. Definitely something worth checking out if you need to understand some concepts through a worked example.
Anyways, check out my work and let me know what you think or what I can work on going out. It’ll be much appreciated.
