The Department of Mathematics, VIT-AP, organized a 3 day FDP on Statistical data analysis and Machine learning using R during 10th to 12th July 2018. 60 faculty members from all the departments, including Management and English & Soft Skills, took part in the programme. This FDP provided deep insights into statistical data analysis with the help of R. Dr. Indranil Mukhopadhyay along with Mrs. Sharmistha Das beautifully crafted the Programme. They kept the sessions quite interactive and were ever ready to help the participants. In these 3 days, Dr. Mukhopadhyay explained how to do Regression analysis, Hypothesis testing, and Machine learning using R, along with simultaneous hands-on sessions. He lucidly explained the concepts of the workshop and made it easier for everyone to understand. Lastly, he advised the participants to focus on intuition while dealing with statistical data and provided a perspective to look at statistics as the study of the variances in data.
