Learn how to create a Random Forest pipeline in PySpark
Learn how to choose best model parameters using Cross Validation and Hyperparameter tuning in PySpark
Learn how to create predictions and assess model's performance in PySpark
By the end of this project, you will learn how to create machine learning pipelines using Python and Spark, free, open-source programs that you can download. You will learn how to load your dataset in Spark and learn how to perform basic cleaning techniques such as removing columns with high missing values and removing rows with missing values. You will then create a machine learning pipeline with a random forest regression model. You will use cross validation and parameter tuning to select the best model from the pipeline. Lastly, you will evaluate your model’s performance using various metrics. A pipeline in Spark combines multiple execution steps in the order of their execution. So rather than executing the steps individually, one can put them in a pipeline to streamline the machine learning process. You can save this pipeline, share it with your colleagues, and load it back again effortlessly. Note: You should have a Gmail account which you will use to sign into Google Colab. 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:
Install Spark on Google Colab and load a dataset in PySpark
Describe and clean your dataset
Create a Random Forest pipeline to predict car prices
Create a cross validator for hyperparameter tuning
Train your model and predict test set car prices
Evaluate your model’s performance via several metrics

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.
