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 and Decision Trees algorithms 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, and h2o. It also provides a good introduction to more advanced techniques e.g. Adaptive Boosting and Random Forests.
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.
The course is suitable for data scientists, researchers, data analysts, developers and engineers, who are currently using Python language (preferably at intermediate level) and would like to expand their skills to include machine learning and predictive analytics toolkit.
Please note this training course doesn’t include Neural Networks and Deep Learning approaches – our “Deep Learning and AI with Python” course is specifically designed to cover these methods in detail.
The course will run for three days (Monday to Wednesday) between 9:30am and 5:00pm and will consist of alternating lecture-style presentations and practical tutorials. The example datasets used during tutorial sessions will come from social sciences, psychology, business and finance fields, however the contents may vary depending on specific interests of participants (based on the Participant’s Skills Inventory). There will be two 15-minute coffee/tea breaks and one 1-hour lunch break on each day of the course.
The programme for this course covers the following concepts and topics:
