Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics Using Python

Course Overview

Programme Code: P200511TDG

Understanding and analysing data is one of the key skills required in the industry today. This course is completely focused on the various aspects of data analytics using Python. Participants will be taught to use and taken through the key libraries for data ingestion and manipulation, exploratory data analysis, model building and data visualization as well as the basic statistics knowledge required to understand the concepts in the latter courses.

Who Should Attend

This particular course should be attended by those who want to learn data analytics using Python should attend this intermediate course. Applicable to students, working professionals and PMETs.

Course Duration

2 Days / 16 Hours (including 2 hours of assessment)

Course Outline

Module 1: Introduction to Machine Learning with scikit-learn

The objective is to understand the basics of machine learning and what it means. The module also introduces the basic concepts of supervised and unsupervised machine learning and introduces a very important library used for machine learning on Python scikit-learn.

Agenda:

  • Introducing the machine learning flow and concepts
  • Functions within scikit-learn
  • Introduction to supervised and unsupervised machine learning

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the basic concepts of scikit-learn
  • Understand and learn the nuances of machine learning and the various learning types

Module 2: Unsupervised Machine Learning

This module aims to equip participants with the fundamentals of unsupervised machine learning using a very popular python library called scikit-learn. Unsupervised learning is very important across various business cases today, right from customer segmentation to property analysis.

Agenda:

  • Understanding unsupervised ML algorithms
  • Introduction to clustering (k-means, SOM)
  • Implementing clustering with real use cases

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn when to apply unsupervised learning algorithms
  • Understand the nuances of how unsupervised machine learning algorithms work

Module 3: Supervised Machine Learning

Supervised machine learning is one of the most popular technique in machine learning today. This module will stress on some of the most popular algorithms in regression and classification and equip participants with an understanding of how the algorithms work and where they can be used.

Agenda:

  • Introduction to various supervised learning algorithms
  • Understanding feature engineering and feature sets
  • Understanding and implementing

- Logistic Regression

- Support Vector Machines

- Decision Trees

- Bayesian Networks

  • Implementing the above algorithms with real use cases

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how to apply supervised learning algorithms to business cases
  • Learn how to code supervised learning algorithms using Python
  • Learn how to test and validate machine learning models

Module 4: Evaluating machine learning models

One of the key steps in the data science lifecycle is to evaluate machine learning models to make sure the right one is selected for use in the business. Also, these models need to be trained and optimised over time. This module aims to do just that by covering the techniques aiding model selection and evaluation and optimisation.

Agenda:

  • Understanding model selection and evaluation methods
  • Optimise machine learning models

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the keys concepts of model evaluation and performance metrics involved to avoid unintended outcomes
  • Learn to optimise machine learning models using various techniques
