Forecasting Exchange Rates Using R Time Series

Time Series is the historical representation of data points collected at periodic intervals of time. Statistical tools like R use forecasting models to analyse historical time series data to predict future values with reasonable accuracy. In this post I will be using R time series to forecast the exchange rate of Australian dollar using daily closing rate of the dollar collected over a period of two years. Continue reading

Energy Rating Analysis of Air conditioners using R Decision Trees

Decision tree is a data mining model that graphically represents the parameters that are most likely to influence the outcome and the extent of influence. The output is similar to a tree/flowchart with nodes, branches and leaves. The nodes represent the parameters, the branches represent the classification question/decision and the leaves represent the outcome (Screen Capture 1). Internally, decision tree algorithm performs a recursive classification on the input dataset and assigns each record to a segment of the tree where it fits closest. Continue Reading
