import the dataset and perform training/testing set splits
Apply feature scaling for normalization
Build an SVM classifier and make Predictions
Build a Confusion Matrix and Visualize the results
In this 1-hour long guided project-based course, you will learn how to use Python to implement a Support Vector Machine algorithm for classification. This type of algorithm classifies output data and makes predictions. The output of this model is a set of visualized scattered plots separated with a straight line. You will learn the fundamental theory and practical illustrations behind Support Vector Machines and learn to fit, examine, and utilize supervised Classification models using SVM to classify data, using Python. We will walk you step-by-step into Machine Learning supervised problems. With every task in this project, you will expand your knowledge, develop new skills, and broaden your experience in Machine Learning. Particularly, you will build a Support Vector Machine algorithm, and by the end of this project, you will be able to build your own SVM classification model with amazing visualization. In order to be successful in this project, you should just know the basics of Python and classification algorithms.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Understand the concept of building a Support Vector Machine classification algorithm with a real-world example
Import and explore the dataset and libraries: numpy, pandas and matplotlib
Split the dataset into training set and testing set
Apply feature scaling to normalize the input features
Fit the SVM classifier to the dataset and making predictions
Visualize training and testing sets results

Straight to the point, take a little bit of time and it is very useful for anyone seeking more knowledge in this domain. Thumbs up to the instructor.
I like the way we got involved into practice by setting goals which are a bit challenging yet we want to achieve successfully.
I really enjoyed working with this project. Thank you so much for the valuable teaching.
Nice experience to get acquinted with the algorithm
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.
