What you'll learn in this data science course:

This class will introduce you a wide range of machine learning tools in Python. The main focus is on how to use those tools to solve real world problems. Machine learning is a combination of statistical models with programming.

After successful completion of this course, students will be able to carry out your experiments with the public available algorithms or develop your own algorithm. Specifically, students will:
  • Be fluent with popular machine learning techniques with the scikit learn module
  • Be aware of other available machine learning modules
  • Explain and adopt the machine learning algorithm
Week 1: Introduction
  • What is Machine Learning
  • Mathematics review
  • Linear Regression, Bayesean Classifiers, K-Nearest Neighbors
  • Numpy/Scikit-Learn lab
Week 2: Regressions and Classification
  • Multivariate linear regression
  • Logistic Regression
  • Linear Discriminant Analysis
  • Supervised Learning lab
Week 3: Resampling and Model Selection
  • Cross-Validation
  • Bootstrap
  • Feature selection
  • Model selection and regularization lab
Week 4: Support Vector Machines and Decision Trees
  • Support Vector Machines
  • Decision Trees
  • Forests
  • Decision Tree and SVM lab
Intended Audience and Prerequisite:
Practitioners who wish to learn how to execute on predictive analytics by way of the Python language; anyone who wants “to turn ideas into software, quickly and faithfully.”

The students who have taken NYC Data Science Academy’s “Data Science with Python: Data Analytics” course or for those who already have a firm understanding of Python and are looking to extend those Python skills to machine learning and advanced statistical methods. 

The goal of this course is to bring the students to near-expert level in this field. Be sure to read the course syllabus above to ensure your level is appropriate.
School Notes: We offer a certification licensed by the NYS Board of Education.
