Machine Learning with Python

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. In this course, you’ll learn about some of the most widely used and successful machine learning techniques.

Workshop Objective

The workshop aims to equip you with essential skills in machine learning through Python. With ample coverage of concepts through case studies, the aim is to demonstrate the usage of the techniques in various business scenarios.
