Machine Learning for Making Predictions

Welcome to Machine Learning

Welcome data scientist! You are now ready to learn all about Python for Machine Learning. Machine learning is the science of getting computers to learn like humans do and improve their learning over time by feeding them lots of data. Here are a few widely publicized examples of machine learning applications you may already know about:

  • The self-driving Google car
  • Online recommendation offers such as those from Amazon and Netflix
  • Speech recognition software such as Alexa

Machine learning can help us better understand the world around us and aid in major advancements in our society.

This workshop will provide you with the foundation you need to become a data scientist. After completing this workshop, you will be able to use Python and machine learning to model data. Specifically, you’ll learn: what machine learning is and how it works, and how to use Python to train and evaluate your model in order to make predictions.

Python for Data Science workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop. If you don’t have any prior Python programming knowledge, it is highly recommended you complete that workshop first.
