Course Overview

Prerequisites: No prerequisites knowledge of some undergraduate level mathematics would help but is not mandatory. Working knowledge of Python would be helpful if you want to run the source code that is provided.

Taught by a Stanford-educated ex-Googler and an IIT IIM - educated ex-Flipkart lead analyst. This team has decades of practical experience in quant trading analytics and e-commerce.

This course is a down-to-earth shy but confident take on machine learning techniques that you can put to work today

Let's parse that.

The course is down-to-earth : it makes everything as simple as possible - but not simpler

The course is shy but confident : It is authoritative drawn from decades of practical experience -but shies away from needlessly complicating stuff.

You can put ML to work today : If Machine Learning is a car this car will have you driving today. It won't tell you what the carburetor is.

The course is very visual : most of the techniques are explained with the help of animations to help you understand better.

This course is practical as well : There are hundreds of lines of source code with comments that can be used directly to implement natural language processing and machine learning for text summarization text classification in Python.

Basic knowledge: No prerequisites knowledge of some undergraduate level mathematics would help but is not mandatory. Working knowledge of Python would be helpful if you want to run the source code that is provided.

The course is also quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition zooming out so we remember the big picture active learning with plenty of quizzes. There's also a peppy soundtrack and art - all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall.

What's Covered:

Machine Learning:

Supervised/Unsupervised learning Classification Clustering Association Detection Anomaly Detection Dimensionality Reduction Regression.

Naive Bayes K-nearest neighbours Support Vector Machines Artificial Neural Networks K-means Hierarchical clustering Principal Components Analysis Linear regression Logistics regression Random variables Bayes theorem Bias-variance tradeoff

Natural Language Processing with Python:

Corpora stopwords sentence and word parsing auto-summarization sentiment analysis (as a special case of classification) TF-IDF Document Distance Text summarization Text classification with Naive Bayes and K-Nearest Neighbours and Clustering with K-Means

Sentiment Analysis:

Why it's useful Approaches to solving - Rule-Based ML-Based Training Feature Extraction Sentiment Lexicons Regular Expressions Twitter API Sentiment Analysis of Tweets with Python

Mitigating Overfitting with Ensemble Learning:

Decision trees and decision tree learning Overfitting in decision trees Techniques to mitigate overfitting (cross validation regularization) Ensemble learning and Random forests

Recommendations: Content based filtering Collaborative filtering and Association Rules learning

Get started with Deep learning: Apply Multi-layer perceptrons to the MNIST Digit recognition problem

A Note on Python: The code-alongs in this class all use Python 2.7. Source code (with copious amounts of comments) is attached as a resource with all the code-alongs. The source code has been provided for both Python 2 and Python 3 wherever possible.
