Python Machine Learning Bootcamp

Advanced Python Classes in NYC

Machine learning goes beyond normal coding, which requires step-by-step instructions, by using algorithms that can independently learn patterns and make decisions. This skillset is in high demand, as machine learning algorithms now run the majority of trading on Wall Street and the product recommendations at big companies like Amazon, Spotify, and Netflix.

This course will begin with linear and logistic regression, the most time-tested and reliable tools for approaching a machine learning problem. The course will then progress to algorithms with a very different theoretical basis, such as k-nearest neighbors, decision trees, and random forest. This will bring important statistical concepts to the forefront, such as bias, variance and overfitting. You’ll also learn how to measure the accuracy of your models, as well as tips for choosing effective features and algorithms.

The course will be focused on the practical skills needed to solve real-world problems with machine learning. The mathematical foundations for each machine learning algorithm will be explained visually, but there will not be a formal math component. Entering students are expected to be comfortable with writing Python programs, as well as the Numpy and Pandas libraries.
