LINEAR REGRESSION AND WEB SCRAPING ONLINE COURSE

Build Linear Regression and Web Scraping Skills

The Metis Short Immersive Course for Linear Regression and Web Scraping will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and techniques to solve advanced business problems using data. 

Linear Regression and Web Scraping Online Course Overview

LINEAR REGRESSION AND WEB SCRAPING COURSE

Unit 1

Linear Regression Basics and Web Scraping

We’ll start with the basics. Unit one is about getting acquainted with linear regression as well as feature engineering and cross-validation. In addition to these topics, you’ll learn web scraping basics.

Unit 2

Linear Regression Advanced

In unit two, we’ll dive deeper, covering topics like regularization and stochastic gradient descent. You’ll also learn time series regression methods. At the end of the course, you’ll present a final project.

PROJECT

Apply the skills you’ve just learned by solving a linear regression problem. You’ll web scrape to gather data, go deep into regression theory, and practice using python modules like scikit-learn. Finally, you’ll demonstrate your ability to use foundational machine learning techniques like feature engineering and cross validation.

What's Covered

  • Machine learning terminology and how to describe modeling applications, matching different modeling approaches to their appropriate use
  • How to relate the theoretical concept of predictive model complexity to model building and tuning in practice
  • Describing and applying model selection and evaluation techniques, including validation, cross-validation, and testing
  • The purpose and applications of Python web scraping libraries, including their respective strengths and limitations
  • Leveraging web scraping to navigate HTML hierarchy and extract information from it
  • Regularized linear regression, including its relationship with the bias/variance tradeoff, regularized cost functions, and the major practical differences between LASSO and ridge regularization
  • Data handling and pre-processing techniques leveraged by linear regression models
  • Interpreting visual information to gain insight into feature-target relationships and generate feature engineering ideas
  • Applying linear regression concepts to real-world business problems

Prerequisites

We recommend that you have a foundational understanding of the following:

  • The basic visualization tools used to explore, analyze, and visualize tabular datasets
  • Python and pandas
  • The mathematics basics of machine learning from calculus to linear algebra
