Machine Learning with Python

Overview

Machine Learning (ML) is a rapidly growing field that has captured the interest of the global community. Given all the buzz around, it can be difficult to understand what exactly it is. This course will help you grasp what ML is and what it is not, as well as understand the motivations and use cases related to ML. You will see why Python has become the tool of choice for ML, and then use it to solve multiple types of ML problems.

This course features hands-on labs hosted on CENGN's multi-vendor cloud, using the popular Jupyter Notebook web-based interactive development environment. The course culminates with an end-to-end exercise including data cleaning and visualization, problem specification, algorithm selection and results analysis.

This training package includes one attempt for the CENGN Machine Learning With Python exam. Those who successfully complete the exam will earn a CENGN Machine Learning With Python digital badge, which can be posted on LinkedIn and other social media. 

Recommended Prequisites:

  • Moderate background in mathematics, especially statistics
  • Introductory level experience with Python
  • Intermediate level understanding of data analysis

Duration: Learners will need approximately 20-25 hours to complete the course. Learners will have access to the online content and labs for 4 weeks.

Course developed in collaboration with Lighthouse Labs.
