Data Analytics and Machine Learning

Half-Day Course - 12.30pm - 5.30pm

Course Description

This course covers the fundamentals of data analytics and machine learning. It will start with the fundamentals of analytics such as Bayesian statistics, classification,supervised learning, and unsupervised learning. The course will also introduce the participants to basic machine learning algorithms such as decision trees, support vector machines, and neural networks. The course will be hands-on with an emphasis on practical applications where real-life examples will be demonstrated using Python code.

Learning Objectives

This course will introduce the participants to the fundamentals of data analytics and machine learning. The topics covered will include: decision trees, Bayesian classification, regression, support vector machines, neural networks, and unsupervised learning techniques such as k-nearest neighbor. The participants will also be exposed to methodologies to evaluate the effectiveness of these techniques. The course will introduce the participants to the use of Python for data analytics and machine learning.
