Course description

Machine Learning Essentials With Python

Machine Learning Essentials with Python is a foundation-level, three-day hands-on course that teaches students core skills and concepts in modern machine learning practices.  This course is geared for attendees experienced with Python, but new to machine learning, who need introductory level coverage of these topics, rather than a deep dive of the math and statistics behind Machine Learning.  Students will learn basic algorithms from scratch. For each machine learning concept, students will first learn about and discuss the foundations, its applicability and limitations, and then  explore the implementation and use, reviewing and working with specific use cases 

Working in a hands-on learning environment, led by our Machine Learning expert instructor, students will learn about and explore: 

  • Popular machine learning algorithms, their applicability and limitations 
  • Practical application of these methods in a machine learning environment 
  • Practical use cases and limitations of algorithms 

Learning Objectives 

This “skills-centric” course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, with extensive practical exercises designed to reinforce fundamental skills, concepts and best practices taught throughout the course.   

Topics Covered: This is a high-level list of topics covered in this course. Please see the detailed Agenda below 

  • Getting Started & Optional Python Quick Refresher 
  • Statistics and Probability Refresher and Python Practice 
  • Probability Density Function; Probability Mass Function; Naive Bayes 
  • Predictive Models 
  • Machine Learning with Python 
  • Recommender Systems 
  • KNN and PCA 
  • Reinforcement Learning 
  • Dealing with Real-World Data  
  • Experimental Design / ML in the Real World 
  • Time Permitting: Deep Learning and Neural Networks 

NOTE: Students who want a more math-centric, deeper dive into detailed statistics and algorithm review might consider this course as an alternative: TTML5504 Machine Learning Foundation: Working with Statistics, Algorithms and Neural Networks.
