About the Course

Case Study - Predicting Housing Prices In our first case study, predicting house prices, you will create models that predict a continuous value (price) from input features (square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms,...). This is just one of the many places where regression can be applied. Other applications range from predicting health outcomes in medicine, stock prices in finance, and power usage in high-performance computing, to analyzing which regulators are important for gene expression. In this course, you will explore regularized linear regression models for the task of prediction and feature selection. You will be able to handle very large sets of features and select between models of various complexity. You will also analyze the impact of aspects of your data -- such as outliers -- on your selected models and predictions. To fit these models, you will implement optimization algorithms that scale to large datasets. Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course, you will be able to: -Describe the input and output of a regression model. -Compare and contrast bias and variance when modeling data. -Estimate model parameters using optimization algorithms. -Tune parameters with cross validation. -Analyze the performance of the model. -Describe the notion of sparsity and how LASSO leads to sparse solutions. -Deploy methods to select between models. -Exploit the model to form predictions. -Build a regression model to predict prices using a housing dataset. -Implement these techniques in Python....

I really enjoyed all the concepts and implementations I did along this course....except during the Lasso module. I found this module harder than the others but very interesting as well. Great course!

Excellent professor. Fundamentals and math are provided as well. Very good notebooks for the’s just that turicreate library that caused some issues, however the course deserves a 5/5

I think the forum activity is a bit low, and I think in some cases the things are overly describes whereas in others it goes too fast.

Overall, the course was really good. But, it would be great if the concept of co-ordinate descent was explained much more clearly.

Great course - but the exercise and exams are challenging - which is good if you have the programming experience. One really

...really challenging...

...have to be a real statistician and pythonist...

...need time to absorb new skills...

This course is well structured. It covered a good parts of details I was missing on my machine learning path.

Well taught !!Could have been better if practical teaching was more !!I mean teaching via coding was more:)

Quite a hard course...

But laid great foundations and reduced the dependence on graphlab.

Thanks Emily!

Good course! Teachers are perfect and knowledge is overall, but the exercise need some improvement.

Great course. Can only be better if we were taught in the industry standard libraries (fe. SciPy)

Great, difficult course. The Graphlab vs scikit thing is the only reason I dock it a star.

It would have been better if the coding part was also covered in videos only.

좋은 내용, 자세하고 친절한 설명, 적절한 난의도가 좋았습니다. 다만, 일부 모듈이 윈도우10 환경에서 사용하기 어려운 경우가 있습니다.

Course covers in depth many topics. Only some issues with using Pandas.
