Project Due:

You’ll develop a modularized data processing pipeline, incorporating tools such as cloud computing, relational and non-relational databases, web application deployment, and big data handling tools (Hadoop or Spark).

UNIT 1: Classification Basics

Learn basic classification models, classification metrics, and feature engineering for classification problems.

UNIT 2: Classification Advanced

Understand advanced classification models and how to work with imbalanced datasets.

Project Due:

You’ll solve a classification problem using algorithms such as KNN, logistic regression, Naive Bayes, decision trees, random forests, and gradient boosting. You’ll further explore the foundational concepts and techniques in supervised machine learning, determine the proper metrics to use for your modeling problem, and address potential challenges involving class imbalance.

UNIT 1: Natural Language Processing and Unsupervised Learning Basics

Learn the basics of natural language processing, recommendation systems, and dimensionality reduction. In addition, you’ll discover some basic clustering techniques.

UNIT 2: Natural Language Processing and Unsupervised Learning Advanced

Learn advanced clustering algorithms and natural language processing techniques.

Project Due:

You’ll analyze text data using NLP algorithms. You’ll then utilize different techniques for dimensionality reduction such as Principal Component Analysis, apply clustering algorithms such as K-means, and learn topic models such as Latent Dirichlet Allocation.
