We just finished our first mile on the Python and machine learning journey! Throughout this chapter, we became familiar with the basics of machine learning. We started with what machine learning is all about, the importance of machine learning (DT era) and its brief history, and looked at recent developments as well. We also learned typical machine learning tasks and explored several essential techniques of working with data and working with models. Now that we're equipped with basic machine learning knowledge and we've set up the software and tools, let's get ready for the real-world machine learning examples ahead.
In particular, we will be exploring newsgroups text data in our first ML project coming up next chapter.
