1. Course description.
Python has become a powerful language of data science and is now commonly used as the leading programming language for predictive analytics and artificial intelligence. During this hands-on “Machine Learning with Python” training course, you will learn to utilise the most cutting edge Python libraries for clustering, customer segmentation, predictive analytics and machine learning on the real-world data.
The course explores practical applications of the most frequently used machine learning approaches such a Multiple Linear, Polynomial (non-linear) and Logistic Regressions, k-Means and Hierarchical Clustering, k-Nearest Neighbours, Naive Bayes, Decision Trees and ensemble algorithms e.g. Random Forests, Adaptive Boosting or Extra Gradient Boosting approaches using Python’s major scientific libraries such as NumPy, pandas, SciPy as well as more specialised, statistical and machine learning oriented packages e.g. scikit-learn, statsmodels, pycaret and h2o.
Apart from this, you will learn to evaluate the predictive models based on the obtained metrics such as sensitivity, specificity, F-score, Kappa etc., and optimise the accuracy and efficiency of these models using various methods of cross-validation, grid-search and performance boosting.
Please note this training course doesn’t include Neural Networks and Deep Learning approaches.
2. Course schedule.
This instructor-led course duration is planned over 6 teaching weeks.
In between the six weekly online live tutorials (2.5 hours long each) you will improve your skills by watching pre-recorded video tutorials at our Mind Project Learning Platform and working through set tasks (e.g. quizzes) as well as homework coding exercises which will require 4-6 hours of your time commitment per week (24-36 hours). We estimate that the total time commitment is 40-50 hours over 6 teaching weeks.
Start date: Wednesday, 17th of March 2021 @10:00 am London (UK) time
Schedule of sessions: Every Wednesday at 10:00 am London (UK) time for 6 weeks
Deadline for registrations: Monday, 15th of March 2021 @ 17:00 London (UK) time
