How to read a text file in R?

This recipe helps you read a text file in R

Recipe Objective

How to read a text file in R? A text file (.txt extension) is a plain text file which can be accessed using notepad. R can read files with different formats like text file, csv file etc which are stored outside the R environment. Reading a file means, accessing the file in the R environment to perform various operations on the data. This recipe gives an example on how to read a text file in R..

Step 1 - Read a text file

A text file can be read from an url. Syntax for reading a text file - readLines("x.txt")

x <- readLines("https://storage.googleapis.com/dimensionless/python/files/In-Flanders-Fields.txt") head(x)

A text file can also be imported by adding it to te files by clicking into 'Upload to session storage'

x <- readLines("R_61_SampleTextFile.txt") head(x)

Grouping similar schools/colleges using scorecard and other factors
Use cluster analysis to identify the groups of characteristically similar schools in the College Scorecard dataset. Considerations: Clustering Algorithm Data Preparation How will you deal with missing values? Categorical variables? Feature intercorrelations? Feature normalization or scaling? Dimensionality reduction? Hyperparameters How will you set the parameters -- the algorithm's knobs and dials, so to speak -- in order to achieve valid and useful output? Interpretation Is it possible to explain what each cluster represents? Did you retain or prepare a set of features that enables a meaningful interpretation of the clusters? Do the compositions of the clusters seem to make sense? Validation How will you measure the validity of your clustering process? Which metrics will you use and how will you apply them?

Time Series LSTM forecasting
In this project, we will use time-series forecasting to predict the values of a sensor using multiple dependent variables. A variety of machine learning models are applied in this task of time series forecasting. We will see a comparison between the LSTM, ARIMA and Regression models. Classical forecasting methods like ARIMA are still popular and powerful but they lack the overall generalizability that memory-based models like LSTM offer. Every model has its own advantages and disadvantages and that will be discussed. The main objective of this article is to lead you through building a working LSTM model and it's different variants such as Vanilla, Stacked, Bidirectional, etc. There will be special focus on customized data preparation for LSTM.
