In addition to the topics that we covered in the first edition, we plan to add:
  • additional material on using the vtreat package for data preparation.

  • Discussion of LIME for model explanation.

  • and sections on modeling techniques that we didn’t cover in the first edition, .

  • such as gradient boosting, regularized regression, and auto-encoders.
