Course Description

Every field of computing is being impacted by Machine Learning: software engineering, data analysis, and artificial intelligence.

In this online, self-paced course discover the machine learning models that interpret large amounts of data. Learn to utilize Python’s libraries to solve predictive problems (supervised learning) and data clustering problems (unsupervised learning). Study machine learning techniques such as multiple linear regressions (Ridge and Lasso), generalized linear models and classification, clustering and dimensionality reduction methods. Gain hands-on experience solving complex and simple real-world problems across a broad array of industries. This course concludes with a capstone project in which you complete a small freelance coding assignment.

For the duration of the course you will have 24/7 access to course materials allowing you to save your progress and resume where you left off at any time.
