Data Science Projects with Python will help you get comfortable with using the Python environment for data science. This course will start you on your journey to mastering topics within machine learning. These skills will help you deliver the kind of state-of-the-art predictive models that are being used to deliver value to businesses across industries.

Data Science Projects with Python is designed to give you practical guidance on industry-standard data analysis and machine learning tools in Python, with the help of realistic data. The course will help you understand how you can use pandas and Matplotlib to critically examine a dataset with summary statistics and graphs and extract the insights you seek to derive. You will continue to build on your knowledge as you learn how to prepare data and feed it to machine learning algorithms, such as regularized logistic regression and random forest, using the scikit-learn package. You’ll discover how to tune the algorithms to provide the best predictions on new and, unseen data. As you delve into later chapters, you’ll be able to understand the working and output of these algorithms and gain insight into not only the predictive capabilities of the models but also their reasons for making these predictions.
By the end of this course, you will have the skills you need to confidently use various machine learning algorithms to perform detailed data analysis and extract meaningful insights from data.

Duration: 2 Days


Data Science Projects with Python takes a case study approach to simulate the working conditions you will experience when applying data science and machine learning concepts. You will be presented with a problem and a data set and walked through the steps of defining an answerable question, deciding what analysis methods to use, and implementing all of this in Python to create a deliverable.
