9780133886016: Modeling Techniques in Predictive Analytics: Business Problems and Solutions with R
Reseña del editor:

To succeed with predictive analytics, you must understand it on three levels: Strategy and management Methods and models Technology and code This up-to-the-minute reference thoroughly covers all three categories. Now fully updated, this uniquely accessible book will help you use predictive analytics to solve real business problems and drive real competitive advantage. If you're new to the discipline, it will give you the strong foundation you need to get accurate, actionable results. If you're already a modeler, programmer, or manager, it will teach you crucial skills you don't yet have. Unlike competitive books, this guide illuminates the discipline through realistic vignettes and intuitive data visualizations-not complex math. Thomas W. Miller, leader of Northwestern University's pioneering program in predictive analytics, guides you through defining problems, identifying data, crafting and optimizing models, writing effective R code, interpreting results, and more. Every chapter focuses on one of today's key applications for predictive analytics, delivering skills and knowledge to put models to work-and maximize their value. Reflecting extensive student and instructor feedback, this edition adds five classroom-tested case studies, updates all code for new versions of R, explains code behavior more clearly and completely, and covers modern data science methods even more effectively. All data sets, extensive R code, and additional examples available for download at http://www.ftpress.com/miller If you want to make the most of predictive analytics, data science, and big data, this is the book for you. Thomas W. Miller's unique balanced approach combines business context and quantitative tools, appealing to managers, analysts, programmers, and students alike. Miller addresses multiple business cases and challenges, including segmentation, brand positioning, product choice modeling, pricing research, finance, sports, text analytics, sentiment analysis, and social network analysis. He illuminates the use of cross-sectional data, time series, spatial, and spatio-temporal data. You'll learn why each problem matters, what data are relevant, and how to explore the data you've identified. Miller guides you through conceptually modeling each data set with words and figures; and then modeling it again with realistic R programs that deliver actionable insights. You'll walk through model construction, explanatory variable subset selection, and validation, mastering best practices for improving out-of-sample predictive performance. Throughout, Miller employs data visualization and statistical graphics to help you explore data, present models, and evaluate performance. This edition adds five new case studies, updates all code for the newest versions of R, adds more commenting to clarify how the code works, and offers a more detailed and up-to-date primer on data science methods. Gain powerful, actionable, profitable insights about: * Advertising and promotion * Consumer preference and choice * Market baskets and related purchases * Economic forecasting * Operations management * Unstructured text and language * Customer sentiment * Brand and price * Sports team performance * And much more

Reseña del editor:

Compete on analytics: win by understanding your data more deeply than your competitors do! In Modeling Techniques in Predictive Analytics, Revised Edition, the leader of Northwestern University's prestigious analytics program brings together all the up-to-date concepts, techniques, and R code you need to excel in analytics. Thomas W. Miller's balanced approach combines business context and quantitative tools, appealing to managers, analysts, programmers, and students alike. This Revised Edition is updated with new sources throughout, and has been reorganized to be completely modular. Each chapter now stands completely on its own -- thereby supporting even more flexible learning paths, and helping readers quickly access all the knowledge they need to solve any category of problem. Miller addresses multiple business challenges and business cases, including segmentation, brand positioning, product choice modeling, pricing research, finance, sports, Web and text analytics, and social network analysis. He illuminates the use of cross-sectional data, time series, spatial, and even spatio-temporal data. For each problem, Miller explains: * Why the problem is significant * What data is relevant * How to explore your data * How to model your data - first conceptually, with words and figures; and then with mathematics and programs Miller walks through model construction, explanatory variable subset selection, and validation, demonstrating best practices for improving out-of-sample predictive performance. He employs data visualization and statistical graphics in exploring data, presenting models, and evaluating performance. Extensive example code is presented in R, today's #1 system for applied statistics, statistical research, and predictive modeling; all code is set apart from other text so it's easy to find if you want it (and easy to skip if you don't)
