Supervised machine learning is used in a wide range of industries across sectors such as finance, online advertising, and analytics, and it’s here to stay. Supervised learning allows you to train your system to make pricing predictions, campaign adjustments, customer recommendations, and much more, while allowing the system to self-adjust and make decisions on its own. This makes it crucial to know how a machine “learns” under the hood.
This course will guide you through the implementation and nuances of many popular supervised machine learning algorithms while facilitating a deep understanding along the way. You’ll embark on this journey with a quick course overview and see how supervised machine learning differs from unsupervised learning.
Next, we’ll explore parametric models such as linear and logistic regression, non-parametric methods such as decision trees, and various clustering techniques to facilitate decision-making and predictions. As we proceed, you’ll work hands-on with recommender systems, which are widely used by online companies to increase user interaction and enrich shopping potential. Finally, you’ll wrap up with a brief foray into neural networks and transfer learning.
By the end of the video course, you’ll be equipped with hands-on techniques to gain the practical know-how needed to quickly and powerfully apply these algorithms to new problems.
This course is suitable for developers/aspiring data scientists who want to enter the field of data science and are new to machine learning. Intermediate knowledge of Python is required for the course.
