About the Course

This course will introduce the learner to applied machine learning, focusing more on the techniques and methods than on the statistics behind these methods. The course will start with a discussion of how machine learning is different than descriptive statistics, and introduce the scikit learn toolkit through a tutorial. The issue of dimensionality of data will be discussed, and the task of clustering data, as well as evaluating those clusters, will be tackled. Supervised approaches for creating predictive models will be described, and learners will be able to apply the scikit learn predictive modelling methods while understanding process issues related to data generalizability (e.g. cross validation, overfitting). The course will end with a look at more advanced techniques, such as building ensembles, and practical limitations of predictive models. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify the difference between a supervised (classification) and unsupervised (clustering) technique, identify which technique they need to apply for a particular dataset and need, engineer features to meet that need, and write python code to carry out an analysis. This course should be taken after Introduction to Data Science in Python and Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python and before Applied Text Mining in Python and Applied Social Analysis in Python....

Very well structured course, and very interesting too! Has made me want to pursue a career in machine learning. I originally just wanted to learn to program, without true goal, now I have one thanks!!

good one to quickly start learning ML - covering models, what they do, and how to tune them. Not going deep into the "how" models work.

Good Course. Not for beginners starting with Machine Learning. Intermediate level. Prior knowledge of python libraries would help.

Very good course. Not very deep, but definitively very wide and appropriate for an overview course of machine learning in python.

I appreciate so much this course even it was so dense and slitly short. It would be useful to extend it over several weeks again.

For applied machine learning, outstanding. It could be improved with bit more theory, which gives more insight to the concept.
