If you’re excited to explore data science & machine learning but anxious about learning complex programming languages or intimidated by terms like “naive bayes”, “logistic regression”, “KNN” and “decision trees”, you’re in the right place.
This course is PART 1 of a 4-PART SERIES designed to help you build a strong, foundational understanding of machine learning:
PART 1: QA & Data Profiling
PART 2: Classification
PART 3: Regression & Forecasting (Coming Soon!)
PART 4: Unsupervised Learning (Coming Soon!)
This course makes data science approachable to everyday people, and is designed to demystify powerful machine learning tools & techniques without trying to teach you a coding language at the same time.
Instead, we’ll use familiar, user-friendly tools like Microsoft Excel to break down complex topics and help you understand exactly HOW and WHY machine learning works before you dive into programming languages like Python or R. Unlike most data science and machine learning courses, you won’t write a SINGLE LINE of code.
In this Part 1 course, we’ll introduce the machine learning landscape and workflow, and review critical QA tips for cleaning and preparing raw data for analysis, including variable types, empty values, range & count calculations, table structures, and more.
We’ll cover univariate analysis with frequency tables, histograms, kernel densities, and profiling metrics, then dive into multivariate profiling tools like heat maps, violin & box plots, scatter plots, and correlation:
Section 1: Machine Learning Intro & Landscape
Machine learning process, definition, and landscape
Section 2: Preliminary Data QA
Variable types, empty values, range & count calculations, left/right censoring, etc.
Section 3: Univariate Profiling
Histograms, frequency tables, mean, median, mode, variance, skewness, etc.
Section 4: Multivariate Profiling
Violin & box plots, kernel densities, heat maps, correlation, etc.
Throughout the course we’ll introduce real-world scenarios designed to help solidify key concepts and tie them back to actual business intelligence case studies. You’ll use profiling metrics to clean up product inventory data for a local grocery, explore Olympic athlete demographics with histograms and kernel densities, visualize traffic accident frequency with heat maps, and much more.
If you’re ready to build the foundation for a successful career in data science, this is the course for you.
