Hello everyone and welcome to this new hands-on project on Scikit-Learn Library for solving machine learning classification problems. In this project, we will learn how to build and train classifier models using Scikit-Learn library. Scikit-learn is a free machine learning library developed for python. Scikit-learn offers several algorithms for classification, regression, and clustering. Several famous machine learning models are included such as support vector machines, random forests, gradient boosting, and k-means.

Skills you will develop

  • Data Analysis

  • Machine Learning (ML) Algorithms

  • Machine Learning
