Data Science with Python: Machine Learning

Data Science with Python:
Machine Learning

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

* Tuition paid for part-time courses can be applied to the Data Science Bootcamps if admitted within 9 months.
In response to COVID-19, all of our scheduled in-person professional development courses will be temporarily conducted remote/live online.

Our Alumni Feedback

I highly recommend these classes to anyone who wants to take their analytics skills beyond Excel, pivot tables, and averages and into more advanced predictive modeling methods. Luckily, a lot of the work has already been done for us by the developers who created pandas, matplotlib, statsmodels, and scikit-learn. I didn't know anything about these tools prior to taking this class. Vivian makes machine learning easy. At work I can now stand on the shoulders of Python's giants. Pretty cool. Extremely useful.
Sam Brand
I was very happy with the theory, the application, the pace of the class and the amount of homework for a 5 week class (Sundays). Instructor Ryan was available to help us to catch up with questions related to Python or graphics before and after class. To anybody who decides to take this class, I would recommend to do the project. If you choose not to do it, I would suggest that you stay longer in the last class to watch the presentations of your classmates. I learned from doing my own project but I specially found very interesting the presentations of my classmates. Also I think that a previous knowledge of Python is necessary.
Kirsten Schulz
Very solid class with an excellent professor Ryan Courtney. We covered all the bases and the professor was very careful to make sure that everyone was being brought along with the course material but still went out of his way to challenge us. Classic socratic method style of pushing the class. Like most courses it still comes down to what you are willing to put in time and effort wise but it was an excellent guided adventure.
Dylan Dempsey
I have been taking classes at NYC data science academy, there is a reason I came back. I learned so much from both of the instructors I had. They really really do care about you and give you a lot of individual attention. You almost can't slack because they will be right there and push you to finish your problem sets. This is something you can't get just taking an on line class. I highly recommend anyone to take this class in person instead of on line.
Barbara Wang

I took the Data Science with Python: Machine Learning course and I learned a lot. This course helped me to improve my data analysis and general Python skills. It introduced me to several new libraries and algorithms, most of which I plan to use at work. Overall, I had a very positive experience.

The intermediate python machine learning course was a fascinating time. It gave me a much better feel for the variety of practical techniques that can be used in the field, and I’m frankly really excited to apply what I’ve learned in the near future. Make no mistake, the course and topics are challenging, but your perseverance will be rewarded.
