Machine Learning With Big Data


This course is 4 of 6 in the Coursera Big Data Specialization. From Coursera: “Want to make sense of the volumes of data you have collected? Need to incorporate data-driven decisions into your process? This course provides an overview of machine learning techniques to explore, analyze, and leverage data. You will be introduced to tools and algorithms you can use to create machine learning models that learn from data, and to … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Machine Learning with the Experts: School Budgets


From DataCamp: “Data Science isn’t just for predicting ad-clicks; it’s also useful for social impact!This course is a case study from a machine learning competition on DrivenData. You’ll explore a problem related to school district budgeting. By building a model to automatically classify items in a school’s budget, it makes it easier and faster for schools to compare their spending with other schools. In this course, you’ll begin by building a … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Unsupervised Learning in Python


From DataCamp: “Say you have a collection of customers with a variety of characteristics such as age, location, and financial history, and you wish to discover patterns and sort them into clusters. Or perhaps you have a set of texts, such as wikipedia pages, and you wish to segment them into categories based on their content. This is the world of unsupervised learning, called as such because you are not guiding, … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Unsupervised Learning in R


From DataCamp: “Many times in machine learning, the goal is to find patterns in data without trying to make predictions. This is called unsupervised learning. One common use case of unsupervised learning is grouping consumers based on demographics and purchasing history to deploy targeted marketing campaigns. Another example is wanting to describe the unmeasured factors that most influence crime differences between cities. This course provides a basic introduction to clustering and … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Machine Learning Toolbox


From DataCamp: “Machine learning is the study and application of algorithms that learn from and make predictions on data. From search results to self-driving cars, it has manifested itself in all areas of our lives and is one of the most exciting and fast-growing fields of research in the world of data science. This course teaches the big ideas in machine learning: how to build and evaluate predictive models, how to … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Supervised Learning with scikit-learn


From DataCamp: “At the end of the day, the value of Data Scientists rests on their ability to describe the world and to make predictions. Machine Learning is the field of teaching machines and computers to learn from existing data to make predictions on new data – will a given tumor be benign or malignant? Which of your customers will take their business elsewhere? Is a particular email spam or not? … Continue Reading

DataCamp – Introduction to Machine Learning


From DataCamp: “This online machine learning course is perfect for those who have a solid basis in R and statistics, but are complete beginners with machine learning. After a broad overview of the discipline’s most common techniques and applications, you’ll gain more insight into the assessment and training of different machine learning models. The rest of the course is dedicated to a first reconnaissance with three of the most basic machine … Continue Reading
