This 20-hour course covers all the basic machine learning methods & Python modules (especially Scikit-Learn) for implementing them. The five sessions cover: simple & multiple Linear regressions; classification methods including logistic regression, discriminant analysis & naive bayes, support vector machines (SVMs) & tree based methods; cross-validation & feature selection; regularization; principal component analysis (PCA) & clustering algorithms. After successfully completing of this course, you will be able to explain the principles of machine learning algorithms & implement these methods to analyze complex datasets & make predictions.
