Set up a machine learning application in a "zero configuration" environment such as Google's Colab(oratory) Research platform.
Set up and configure the What-If Tool to analyze the behavior of exemplary machine learning prediction models.
In this 1-hour long guided project, you will learn how to use the "What-If" Tool (WIT) in the context of training and testing machine learning prediction models. In particular, you will learn a) how to set up a machine learning application in Python by using interactive Python notebook(s) on Google's Colab(oratory) environment, a.k.a. "zero configuration" environment, b) import and prepare the data, c) train and test classifiers as prediction models, d) analyze the behavior of the trained prediction models by using WIT for specific data points (individual basis), e) moving on to the analysis of the behavior of the trained prediction models by using WIT global basis, i.e., all test data considered. 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.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Set up the environment for the "What-If" tool (WIT) as an extension in Jupyter and as a Google's Colaboratory notebook, including importing of the dataset (e.g., white wine quality data)
Train classifiers, e.g., Decision Tree and Random Forest, as exemplary machine learning prediction models to make predictions about the quality of white wines.
Launch the What-If Tool (WIT) widget. This task will allow us to get a first understanding on how our prediction model(s) behave at both individual and global levels.
Use the What-If Tool (WIT) features to explain the behavior of a prediction model on an individual basis.
Use the What-If Tool (WIT) advanced features to explain the behavior of a prediction model on an individual basis.
Use the What-If Tool (WIT) features to explain the behavior of a prediction model on a global basis.

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.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
