Machine Learning Using Python

Presented by General Assembly. Partnered with SGInnovate

This two day workshop will introduce students to data exploration and machine learning techniques. Students will learn about the data science workflow and will practice exploring and visualising data using Python and built-in libraries. Students will also explore the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning techniques and practice creating predictive regression models.

Note: This is a two day workshop and the second session will be on 23 June (Sat).

About This Workshop

This two day workshop will introduce students to data exploration and machine learning techniques. Students will learn about the data science workflow and will practice exploring and visualising data using Python and built-in libraries. Students will also explore the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning techniques and practice creating predictive regression models.

Takeaways

After this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Collect data from a variety of sources (e.g., Excel, web-scraping, APIs and others)
  • Explore large data sets
  • Clean and "munge" the data to prepare it for analysis
  • Apply machine learning algorithms to gain insight from the data
  • Visualize the results of your analysis
  • Build your own library and Python scripts

Recommended Prerequisites

Beginner/intermediate. This workshop is for analysts, product managers, mathematicians, business managers or anyone else that wants to learn about machine learning. A background in computer science, programming, and/or statistics is preferred for this workshop. It is not required but you are expected to be somewhat familiar with the command line tools and how to write simple programs. Recommended that you take the “Python for Beginners” workshop prior to attending this.

  • What Can We Expect from Machine Cognition

    Recent decades have witnessed the remarkable progress in artificial intelligence (AI). However, there are still opposing views on the prospect of AI as being yet another cyclic hype or a new development with sustaining power. As the evidence becomes less controversial in the area of recognition, we focus the discussion on the next level of mental capacity necessary to intelligent behaviors, namely, the capability of cognition that involves knowledge acquisition, inference and reasoning, and reinforcement learning. We present our views by way of the current status of Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), a project in Microsoft Research that teaches machine to obtain knowledge by reading scholarly publications, and contemplate what machine can do in the near future based on the trajectory being observed thus far. As MAG is open to the public, how it can be used through PySpark and what types of applications it has enabled will also be described.
