Course Description

Hands-on Predictive Analytics with Python is a three-day, hands-on course that guides students through a step-by-step approach to defining problems and identifying relevant data. Students will learn how to perform data preparation, explore and visualize relationships, as well as build models, tune, evaluate, and deploy models.  Each stage has relevant practical examples and efficient Python code. You will work with models such as KNN, Random Forests, and neural networks using the most important libraries in Python’s data science stack: NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Keras, Dash, and so on. In addition to hands-on code examples, you will find intuitive explanations of the inner workings of the main techniques and algorithms used in predictive analytics.

Learning Objectives

Working in a hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn to: Understand the main concepts and principles of predictive analytics Use the Python data analytics ecosystem to implement end-to-end predictive analytics projects Explore advanced predictive modeling algorithms with an emphasis on theory with intuitive explanations Learn to deploy a predictive model’s results as an interactive application Learn about the stages involved in producing complete predictive analytics solutions Understand how to define a problem, propose a solution, and prepare a dataset Use visualizations to explore relationships and gain insights into the dataset Learn to build regression and classification models using scikit-learn Use Keras to build powerful neural network models that produce accurate predictions Learn to serve a model’s predictions as a web application
