Machine Learning Fundamentals

More Information
  • Understand the importance of data representation
  • Gain insights into the differences between supervised and unsupervised models
  • Explore data using the Matplotlib library
  • Study popular algorithms, such as k-means, Mean-Shift, and DBSCAN
  • Measure model performance through different metrics
  • Implement a confusion matrix using scikit-learn
  • Study popular algorithms, such as Naïve-Bayes, Decision Tree, and SVM
  • Perform error analysis to improve the performance of the model
  • Learn to build a comprehensive machine learning program

As machine learning algorithms become popular, new tools that optimize these algorithms are also developed. Machine Learning Fundamentals explains you how to use the syntax of scikit-learn. You'll study the difference between supervised and unsupervised models, as well as the importance of choosing the appropriate algorithm for each dataset. You'll apply unsupervised clustering algorithms over real-world datasets, to discover patterns and profiles, and explore the process to solve an unsupervised machine learning problem.

The focus of the book then shifts to supervised learning algorithms. You'll learn to implement different supervised algorithms and develop neural network structures using the scikit-learn package. You'll also learn how to perform coherent result analysis to improve the performance of the algorithm by tuning hyperparameters.

By the end of this book, you will have gain all the skills required to start programming machine learning algorithms.

  • Explore scikit-learn uniform API and its application into any type of model
