# Overview of the most interesting materials on data analysis and machine learning No. 6 (July 21 - 28, 2014)

In the next issue of the review of the most interesting materials devoted to the topic of data analysis and machine learning, a number of articles are devoted to the practical application of various types of regression. There is an interesting series of articles on the use of machine learning in trading. As usual, a lot of material is devoted to machine learning algorithms (including neural networks). There are some interesting video lectures, as well as many articles about the practical application of the R language in data analysis and machine learning.
