Outline

1 Statistical Learning

  • Statistical analysis concepts
  • Descriptive statistics
  • Introduction to probability and Bayes theorem
  • Probability distributions
  • Hypothesis testing & scores

2 Python for Machine Learning

  • Python Overview
  • Pandas for pre-Processing and Exploratory Data Analysis
  • Numpy for Statistical Analysis
  • Matplotlib & Seaborn for Data Visualization
  • Scikit Learn

Hands-on: No hands-on

3 Introduction to Machine Learning

  • Machine Learning Modelling Flow
  • How to treat Data in ML
  • Types of Machine Learning
  • Performance Measures
  • Bias-Variance Trade-Off
  • Overfitting & Underfitting

4 Optimization

  • Maxima and Minima
  • Cost Function
  • Learning Rate
  • Optimization Techniques

5 Supervised Learning

  • Linear Regression
  • Case Study
  • Logistic Regression
  • KNN Classification
  • Naive Bayesian classifiers
  • SVM - Support Vector Machines
  • With attributes describing various aspect of residential homes, you are required to build a regression model to predict the property prices using optimization techniques like gradient descent.
  • This dataset classifies people described by a set of attributes as good or bad credit risks. Using logistic regression, build a model to predict good or bad customers to help the bank decide on granting loans to its customers.
  • Predict if a patient is likely to get any chronic kidney disease depending on the health metrics.
  • We receive 100s of emails & text messages everyday. Many of them are spams. We would like to classify our spam messages and send them to the spam folder. We would also not like to incorrectly classify our good messages as spam. So correctly classifying a message into spam and ham is of utmost importance. We will use Naive Bayesian technique for text classifications to predict which incoming messages are spam or ham.
  • Biodegradation is one of the major processes that determine the fate of chemicals in the environment. This Data set containing 41 attributes (molecular descriptors) to classify 1055 chemicals into 2 classes - biodegradable and non-biodegradable. Build Models to study the relationships between chemical structure and biodegradation of molecules and correctly classify if a chemical is biodegradable and non-biodegradable.

6 Unsupervised Learning

  • Clustering approaches
  • K Means clustering
  • Hierarchical clustering

7 Ensemble Techniques

  • Introduction to Ensemble Learning
  • Different Ensemble Learning Techniques
  • Bagging
  • Boosting
  • Random Forests
  • PCA (Principal Component Analysis) and Its Applications
  • In statistics and machine learning, ensemble methods use multiple learning algorithms to obtain better predictive performance than could be obtained from any of the constituent learning algorithms alone. In this case study, use AdaBoost, GBM & Random Forest on Lending Data to predict loan status. Ensemble the output and see your result perform than a single model.
  • Reduce Data Dimensionality for a House Attribute Dataset for more insights & better modeling.

8 Recommendation Systems

  • Introduction to Recommendation Systems
  • Types of Recommendation Techniques
  • Collaborative Filtering
  • Content based Filtering
  • Hybrid RS
  • Performance measurement

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
