Learn to build the Linear Regression Model using Pyspark ML to predict admission
Learn to setup Pyspark and work with Pyspark dataframes in Colab Environment
Learn to clean and prepare data for analysis.
In this 1 hour long project-based course, you will learn to build a linear regression model using Pyspark ML to predict students' admission at the university. We will use the graduate admission 2 data set from Kaggle. Our goal is to use a Simple Linear Regression Machine Learning Algorithm from the Pyspark Machine learning library to predict the chances of getting admission. We will be carrying out the entire project on the Google Colab environment with the installation of Pyspark. You will need a free Gmail account to complete this project. Please be aware of the fact that the dataset and the model in this project, can not be used in the real-life. We are only using this data for the learning purposes. By the end of this project, you will be able to build the linear regression model using Pyspark ML to predict admission chances.You will also be able to setup and work with Pyspark on the Google Colab environment. Additionally, you will also be able to clean and prepare data for analysis. You should be familiar with the Python Programming language and you should have a theoretical understanding of Linear Regression algorithm. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
