LinkedIn Learning Course Description

You’ve probably heard about machine learning before, but have you ever wondered what that term really means? How does a machine learn? Have you thought about building a machine learning model, but didn’t know where to start?

This course introduces machine learning in an approachable way and provides step-by-step guidance on how to get started with machine learning via the most in-demand language in use today, Python. We start with exactly what it means for machines to learn and the different ways they learn, then get into how to collect, understand, and prepare data for machine learning. The course will also provide guided examples of how to accomplish each step using Python. Finally, we bring it all together to build, evaluate, and interpret the results of a machine learning model in Python.
