Practical Machine Learning

An introduction to R and Python programming languages, plus a deep coverage of the mathematics, algorithms and technology of Machine learning.

This 5-day course is designed for people who are already working with Big Data and analysing large statistical sets. By attending this course you'll learn what an effective Machine Learning approach looks like in an organisation.

You'll learn to understand different models of Machine Learning and how to implement them. Also covered is how to validate the statistical quality and the metrics attached to that data and how to implement them practically using Python and R.

Target Audience:

This course is aimed at fledging Machine Learning practitioners, and data analysts who wish to gain more in depth knowledge of Machine Learning.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this course attendees will know:

  •   Fundamental mathematics and statistics required for understanding Machine Learning
  •   The workings of some the most commonly used Machine Learning algorithms
  •   Cross validation techniques and the different metrics used to determine the quality of Machine Learning models built
  •   How to pick the best Machine Learning model for a given task

At the end of this course attendees will be able to:

  •   Perform data preparation using R or Python
  •   Build machine learning models using R or Python
