Learn Intuitive Machine Learning Techniques by Exploring a Classic Problem for only £99 [RRP £199]
In an age of decision fatigue and information overload, this “Machine Learning: Decision Trees & Random Forests” course is a crisp yet thorough primer on two great Machine Learning techniques that help cut through the noise: decision trees and random forests.
Design and Implement the solution to a famous problem in machine learning: predicting survival probabilities aboard the Titanic. Understand the perils of overfitting, and how random forests help overcome this risk. Identify the use-cases for Decision Trees as well as Random Forests.
No prerequisites required, but knowledge of some undergraduate level mathematics would help, but is not mandatory. Working knowledge of Python would be helpful if you want to perform the coding exercise and understand the provided source code.
Taught by a Stanford-educated, ex-Googler and an IIT, IIM – educated ex-Flipkart lead analyst. This team has decades of practical experience in quant trading, analytics and e-commerce.
Python Activity: Surviving aboard the Titanic! Build a decision tree to predict the survival of a passenger on the Titanic. This is a challenge posed by Kaggle (a competitive online data science community). We’ll start off by exploring the data and transforming the data into feature vectors that can be fed to a Decision Tree Classifier.
What the course will teach you:
Planting the seed: What are Decision Trees?
Growing the Tree: Decision Tree Learning
Branching out: Information Gain
Decision Tree Algorithms
Installing Python: Anaconda & PIP
Back to Basics: Numpy & Scipy in Python
