One of the most common tasks performed by data scientists and data analysts are prediction and machine learning. This course will cover the basic components of building and applying prediction functions with an emphasis on practical applications. The course will provide basic grounding in concepts such as training and tests sets, overfitting, and error rates. The course will also introduce a range of model based and algorithmic machine learning methods including regression, classification trees, Naive Bayes, and random forests. The course will cover the complete process of building prediction functions including data collection, feature creation, algorithms, and evaluation.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PRACTICAL MACHINE LEARNING
A well descriptive experience for this subject; really steps into how to handle information and how to extract info from them. You need to be prepared with Regression Models, it's the base of it.
It was like opening up a door to a whole new world. I have discovered new tools that I will thoroughly enjoy to use for the exploration of data and for predictions. Thanks Team Coursera !
Very good course. Clear explanations and examples give a good overview of the foundations of Machine Learning. After this course the student can build Machine Learning models.
A great course that really helps demystify what machine learning is and how anyone can use it to build prediction models and start to answer tough questions using data.
