Machine Learning in Python

In this course we will gain understanding of the main areas for machine learning in a combination of lectures, demonstrations and working through exercises where we build models in Python. You will learn how data scientists work when building machine learning solutions, and you will gain knowledge of some of the most used tools, libraries and algorithms.

After this course you will have an understanding of what can be achieved with machine learning and have practical experience of how machine learning algorithms are applied. In addition you will know the most important aspects of exploratory data analysis and machine learning model evaluation, and be able to apply a selection of basic models to develop your own machine learning solution using Python. In this course we will alternate between instructor led training and practical Python exercises.
