Welcome to Predicting Credit Card Fraud with R. In this project-based course, you will learn how to use R to identify fraudulent credit card transactions with a variety of classification methods and use R to generate synthetic samples to address the common problem of classification bias for highly imbalanced datasets—the class of interest (fraud) represents less than 1% of the observations. Class imbalance can make it difficult to detect the effect independent variables have on fraud, ultimately leading to higher misclassification rates. Fixing the imbalance allows the minority class (fraud) to be better learned by the classifier algorithms. After completing the project, you will be able to apply the methods introduced in the project to a wide range of classification problems that typically confront class imbalance, including predicting loan default, customer churn, cancer diagnosis, early high school dropout risk, and malware detection. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Aprende paso a paso

En un video que se reproduce en una pantalla dividida con tu área de trabajo, tu instructor te guiará en cada paso:

  1. Task 1: Explore why imbalanced datasets are problematic for classification algorithms.

  2. Task 2: Use R to explore a dataset.

  3. Task 3: Create random testing and training datasets using the caret package in R.

  4. Task 4: Use R to synthetically balance your training dataset using three techniques from the smotefamily package.

  5. Task 5: Train three classification algorithms (decision tree, naïve Bayes, and linear discriminant analysis) using the natively imbalanced dataset, and generate the predictions for the test dataset.

  6. Task 6: Use R to visually compare your models using the recall, precision, and F measure classification accuracy metrics.
