Course Description

This course will enable you to gain the skills and knowledge that you need to successfully carry-out real-world data science and machine learning projects.

The first part of the course covers data analysis and visualization.  You will be working on real datasets using Python’s Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib and Seaborn libraries.

The second part of the course focuses on machine learning.  We will be covering both supervised and unsupervised learning. We will be working on case studies from wide range of verticals including finance, heath-care, real estate, sales and marketing.  Some of the algorithms that will be discussed include Linear Regression, Logistic Regression, Support Vector Machines (SVM), and K-means clustering.  This course is the foundation for Deep Learning courses in this specialization.
