In this class, students will learn foundations of practical machine learning: 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, and neural networks. All learning objectives are achieved through active application of these techniques to real world datasets. Prereq: DATA 800; DATA 820 Pre- or Coreq: DATA 821.
