R-Tutorial: Machine Learning in R with mlr3

The tutorial includes an introduction to supervised learning. Principles of statistical modelling (such as simple linear regression) are assumed to be known and placed in the nomenclature of machine learning. Using the R package mlr3, it is shown how regression, classification and survival time models can be fitted and used to predict new observations. Further topics include (among others):

  • Resampling and Benchmarking
  • Parallelisation
  • Preprocessing and pipelining
  • Hyperparameter optimisation

The tutorial does not include exercises, but the demonstrated code can be tried out live on a computer pool PC or on personal laptops.
