Course Introduction

Course Overview

The class will introduce you to a wide range of machine learning tools in Python. The main focus is on the concepts, methods, and applications of the general predictive modeling and unsupervised learning and how they are implemented in the Python language environment. The goal is to understand how to use these tools to solve real world problems. After this course you will be able to carry out your experiments with the public available algorithms or develop your own algorithm.

Course Goal

Students will be able to explain the principles of machine learning algorithms and implement these methods to analyze complex datasets and make predictions in Python


  • Knowledge of Python programming
  • Able to munge, analyze, and visualize data in Python
