Machine learning represents a key evolution in the fields of computer science, data analysis, software engineering, and artificial intelligence. This program will teach you how to become a machine learning engineer, and apply predictive models to massive data sets in fields like finance, healthcare, education, and more.
This introductory computer science course in machine learning will cover basic theory, algorithms, and applications. Machine learning is a key technology in Big Data, and in many financial, medical, commercial, and scientific applications. It enables computational systems to automatically learn how to perform a desired task based on information extracted from the data. Machine learning has become one of the hottest fields of study today and the demand for jobs is only expected to increase. Gaining skills in this field will get you one step closer to becoming a data scientist or quantitative analyst.
Once you've accumulated a pile of data through your web application, what do you do with it? In this insightful video course, bit.ly lead scientist Hilary Mason shows you how to solve data analysis problems using basic machine learning techniques and frameworks. You'll follow several examples through the entire process—from obtaining, cleaning, and exploring data to building a model and interpreting the results.
