Machine Learning with Python
This course dives into the basics of machine learning using an approachable, and well-known programming language, Python.
About this course
Data science in the real world often involves the management of data flows for a specific purpose – the modeling of some hypothesis. Machine learning is the art of training models by using existing data along with a statistical method to create a parametric representation that fits the data. In other words, a machine learning algorithm uses statistical processes to learn from examples and then applies what it has learned to future inputs to predict an outcome. These models can be used in data products as engines to create more data and actionable results.Machine learning can classically be summarized with two methodologies – supervised and unsupervised learning.In supervised learning, the “correct answers” are annotated ahead of time and the algorithm tries to fit a decision space based on those answers.In unsupervised learning, algorithms try to group like examples together, inferring similarities usually via distance metrics.These learning types allow us to explore data and categorize them in a meaningful way, predicting where new data will fit into our models.
This course is designed for individuals and organizations requiring:
