Book Description
Machine learning is applied everywhere, from business to research and academia, while scikitlearn is a versatile library that is popular among machine learning practitioners. This book serves as a practical guide for anyone looking to provide handson machine learning solutions with scikitlearn and Python toolkits.
The book begins with an explanation of machine learning concepts and fundamentals, and strikes a balance between theoretical concepts and their applications. Each chapter covers a different set of algorithms, and shows you how to use them to solve reallife problems. You'll also learn about various key supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms using practical examples. Whether it is an instancebased learning algorithm, Bayesian estimation, a deep neural network, a treebased ensemble, or a recommendation system, you'll gain a thorough understanding of its theory and learn when to apply it. As you advance, you'll learn how to deal with unlabeled data and when to use different clustering and anomaly detection algorithms.
By the end of this machine learning book, you'll have learned how to take a datadriven approach to provide endtoend machine learning solutions. You'll also have discovered how to formulate the problem at hand, prepare required data, and evaluate and deploy models in production.
