Add-On Workshop: Intro to Machine Learning with Python
Level: Intro/Intermediate
Cost: $50 
Details: This 2-hour workshop is for beginners and intermediate practitioners or students of Machine Learning. Basic knowledge of python and/or other scientific programming languages is required. In this workshop, we will use a vendor-agnostic platform to get our hands dirty with multiple new data sets - not Iris or Titanic! While most of the exercises will involve the trusty scikit.-learn, we will also explore other data science packages and the advantages they offer. We will finish up by going over the best practices for dealing with gotchas and common traps in machine learning.

  • Machine learning overview and hands-on exercises
  • Supervised learning: regression and classification
  • Unsupervised learning: clustering and dimensionality reduction
  • Scikit-Learn pipelines
  • Model evaluation and performance metrics
  • Deep-dive into data science Python packages including pandas, scikit-learn, and xgboost
  • How to avoid pitfalls in machine learning
  • Model assumptions
  • Multi-label and multi-class problems
  • Imbalanced data
