Hands-On: Machine Learning with Python Made Easy—No, Really!


Hands-On: Machine Learning with Python Made Easy—No, Really!

Getting started with advanced analytics and machine learning can be intimidating. Where do I start? How much math do I need? What algorithms should I use? The good news is that getting started with machine learning is easy—no really, it is!

In this hands-on course, you will be provided all the fundamentals for understanding and effectively training predictive models using the mighty random forest algorithm. Focusing on core concepts and intuitions means that no complicated math is required.

With this understanding, you'll be equipped to tackle the next topics: feature importance and feature engineering. We'll wrap up the day by discussing how to determine if your model is any good. Lastly, you will be given a road map of suggested topics to take on as you continue your data science journey.
