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!!

great experience and learning lots of technique to apply on real world data, and get important and insightful information from raw data. motivated to proceed further in this domain and course as well.

Complete course on supervised learning

Would be nice to cover PCA and unsupervised learning in the assignments

the final assignment was too hard compared to the other assignments and the contens given in the last module

A little dated. Overall a good introduction. The informal explanation of SVM was particularly effective.

Nice there could just be a bit more of a case study to see the difference and decision ways in practices

great course but could be improved with a better explaining of the class on board for abstract concepts.

Very intuitive course...and carefully designed so that it does not overwhelm the students with details

Compared to previous two courses in this specialization, this course need more time for self-learning.

Great course overall. Only reason for 4 stars is some of the assignments could use a bit more clarity.

Easy to learn the course, just be focussed. Its an applied ML course, not to expect any mathematics.

I found the dataset in the last assignment difficult to interprit. I was hoping for a simpler one.

Wish there were a little more theory, realize it's an "Applied" course but still seemed lacking

The python packages used in the course are becoming outdated

adding useless difficulties.
