What will you learn?

After the training, you will be able to:

Perform exploratory data analysis on your datasets with pandas

Train and evaluate machine learning models with scikit-learn.

Identify a suitable machine learning algorithm and metric for your data problem.

Prepare complex data for machine learning with techniques such as scaling, encoding, and imputing.

Apply best practices for data wrangling and model building.


Master exploratory data analysis with Pandas

  • Fetch descriptive summary statistics of your data with simple operations
  • Effectively select and filter parts of your data with loc
  • Retrieve advanced statistics with groupby aggregations
  • Extend your dataset by creating new columns with assign 
  • Structure your code neatly by chaining methods 

Introduction to machine learning

  • Identify the type of machine learning task (classification or regression, supervised or unsupervised, and others)
  • Use scikit-learn to train a classification model
  • Understand how to evaluate your model’s effectiveness with various metrics (such as precision & recall, F1, root mean squared error, r2)

This training is for you if:

You have some basic experience with Python (or any other programming language)

You want to get certified in data science

You would like to apply best practices to your data science projects

You hope to better communicate and collaborate with your data science colleagues

This training is not for you if:

You’ve never worked with Python or any other programming language before (check out our Python for Data Analysis training instead)

You are already an experienced data scientist and you want to develop your skills further (check out our Advanced Data Science training and other specialized topics instead)

You think data science is all hype and can’t add value (check out our Analytics Translation training instead).

You are not interested in practical applications, only the math behind the algorithms

Why should I
follow this training?

Dive into the world of Data Science and Machine Learning using Python.

The course combines theory and practice perfectly, making it a great introduction to the field.
