Books co-authored by Prof. U Dinesh Kumar to be launched at IIM Bangalore on July 16

Titled ‘Machine Learning Using R’ and ‘Data Visualization – Storytelling Using Data’, the books aim to make concepts simpler, compelling and comprehensible for students and practitioners

30 June, 2022, Bengaluru: Two books, titled: ‘Machine Learning Using R’ and ‘Data Visualization – Storytelling Using Data’, co-authored by Prof. U Dinesh Kumar, Chairperson, Data Centre and Analytics Lab and faculty in the Decision Sciences area of IIM Bangalore, will be launched at 2.00 pm on July 16 (Saturday), 2022, at the IIMB auditorium. Both the books are published by Wiley.

About the books:

Machine Learning Using R

The book aims to make Machine Learning (ML) concepts and model development using R simpler for students and practitioners. It covers the theoretical concepts behind ML algorithms and illustrates use of R for developing ML models using datasets from customer relationship management, healthcare, finance, human resource management, social media and sports.

The book discusses challenges and remedies in building machine learning models using several real-life cases which the authors have worked on as part of consulting engagements. The contents of the book will help intermediate as well as advanced users to strengthen their know-how of data preparation, data visualization, feature engineering, model development and model interpretation. The book may also be helpful for building a solid foundation for beginners in the field of Data Science.

Co-authored by Kumar Rahul and Prof. U Dinesh Kumar, the book covers four Harvard Published Cases, two Consulting Project Data and Social Media Data discussed over nine chapters in more than 460 pages of content. Model fine tuning using H2O package and caret package are also demonstrated with R codes and Data Sets.

Data Visualization – Storytelling Using Data

The book explains data insights through visuals and shows how to make them compelling and comprehensible through a series of real-world examples. It provides a roadmap that covers everything from understanding ‘why data visualization and storytelling are important’ to learning ‘how to visualize data and communicate it to an audience effectively’.

The book attempts to provide students and industry professionals a practical method for mastering data storytelling skills. The concepts and examples presented will help intermediate and advanced users to learn how to think with data, the know-how of data visualization, as well as telling a story with data on real-life business problems. This book can be used to learn as well as teach basic concepts of data visualization and data storytelling.

The book is co-authored by Sharada Sringeswara, Purvi Tiwari and Prof. U Dinesh Kumar. The sequence of chapters is designed to create a strong foundation for the learners. The first few chapters cover the Introduction to Visualization, Importance of Visualization and Storytelling, and the later chapters build on the concepts learned in the previous chapters, discussed over seven chapters in 250-plus pages of content. The book includes Python Codes, Tableau Workbooks and Data Sets.
