This class teaches students foundations of applied health data mining and machine learning in Python.  Upon completion, students will be able to understand and apply supervised and unsupervised learning in Python to build predictive models on real world datasets. Techniques covered include (but not limited to): preprocessing, dimensionality reduction, clustering, feature engineering and model evaluation. Models covered include: generalized linear models, tree-based models, Bayesian models, support vector machines, survival analysis and neural networks. All learning objectives are achieved through active application of these techniques to real world datasets. Prereq: HDS 800 or equivalent (PHP 903, DATA 800, other stats), HDS 802 or DATA 820.
