What programming language do I need?

Most of the concepts are independent from the language, the focus is on general concepts. But when technical example is required it is done in R language, using the funModeling package which you can install by doing: install.packages("funModeling")

Book Focus

  • Stimulate intuition behind concepts: The explanation of how to interpret results brings a deeper understanding of what is being done, boosting the freedom to use that knowledge in other situations regardless of the language.

  • Regarding technical aspects.... model creation consumes around 10% of almost any predictive modeling project; the Live Book and funModeling will try to cover remaining 90%.

Why a live book ? Hopefully this book barely has an end, it will be updated periodically. And you can contribute! below the github link.
