Machine learning is one of the most exciting fields in the hi-tech industry, gaining momentum in various applications. Companies are looking for data scientists, data engineers, and machine language (ML) experts to develop products, features, and projects that will help them unleash the power of machine learning. This course will show you how to prepare data for machine learning algorithms using Python and pandas library.
The course starts by explaining the installation process of Anaconda and Jupyter. Once you are ready with the setup, you will understand Python fundamentals, such as variables, data types, conditional statements, loops, and modules. Next, you will go through the pandas library and learn how to use it for loading real-world large datasets. Towards the end, you will learn the steps and techniques to clean data and make it ready to move into machine learning algorithms.
By the end of this course, you will be well-versed with Python fundamentals and pandas library and will be ready to take on data science projects.
What You Will Learn
- Understand how to use Jupyter Lab for Jupyter notebooks
- Learn Python fundamentals
- Load large datasets from files using pandas
- Uncover techniques to perform data analysis and exploration
- Group, sort, export, select, filter, and clean data
- Find out how to preview the data frame
This course is designed for beginners looking to understand the theoretical side of machine learning and to enter the practical side of data science. You will understand the fundamentals of Python and learn how to pre-process data before using it in machine learning algorithms. There are no prerequisites for taking up this course; however, it is recommended to finish with the Machine Learning for Absolute Beginners - Level 1 course.
