In this online course, “Applied Predictive Analytics,” you will apply machine learning techniques in real world case studies. This course is really a “lab” for practically testing your skills on live business projects. It provides a hands-on mentored case-study approach.
Each week, participants will be given a set of exercises and instructions to work on the raw data or processed data (details below). Users will apply their statistical/machine learning knowledge, along with their business understanding, to solve the problems and interpret the modeling results for the given business objective. The course will follow an iterative approach for problem solving, in which users are required to submit modeling responses multiple times.
- WEEK 1: Business Case Study, Introduction and Data Pre-processing
- WEEK 2: Classification Problem, Data Sampling, and Feature Selection
- WEEK 3: Modeling & Evaluation, Leaderboard Prediction
- WEEK 4: Visualization and Analysis & model interpretation for business case study
