Interpretable Machine Learning Applications: Part 1

Offered By
In this Guided Project, you will:

How to select and compare different prediction models (classification regressors) for a real world dataset (FIFA 2018 Soccer World Cup Statistics).

How to extract the most important features, which impact the classifiers, in a model-agnostic approach, together with caveats.

How to get an insight into the way values of the most important features impact the predictions made by the classifiers.

2-hour course, including time of video recordings, practicing and readings, taking the quiz.

In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create interpretable machine learning applications on the example of two classification regression models, decision tree and random forestc classifiers. You will also learn how to explain such prediction models by extracting the most important features and their values, which mostly impact these prediction models. In this sense, the project will boost your career as Machine Learning (ML) developer and modeler in that you will be able to get a deeper insight into the behaviour of your ML model. The project will also benefit your career as a decision maker in an executive position, or consultant, interested in deploying trusted and accountable ML applications. 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.

Skills you will develop

  • Python basic knowledge

  • Features engineering

  • Machine learning classification (regression) models

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Setting the stage (Python Jupyter Lab web-based Server environment, importing the dataset and file to train and test the designated classification regressors as prediction models).

  2. Train, test and estimate the accuracy (confusion matrix) of a Decision Tree classifier.

  3. Train, test and estimate the accuracy (confusion matrix) of a Random Tree classifier as an alternative to the previous one.

  4. Extract a ranking list of the features, which are most important for each one of our prediction models.

  5. Extract and plot the impact of the values of selected important features on predictions being made by each one of our prediction models.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

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.

Guided Projects are not eligible for refunds. See our full refund policy.

Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.

Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
