Master the essential skills needed to recognize and solve complex problems with machine learning and deep learning. Using real-world examples that leverage the popular Python machine learning ecosystem, this book is your perfect companion for learning the art and science of machine learning to become a successful practitioner. The concepts, techniques, tools, frameworks, and methodologies used in this book will teach you how to think, design, build, and execute machine learning systems and projects successfully.Practical Machine Learning with Python follows a structured and comprehensive three-tiered approach packed with hands-on examples and code.
Part 1 focuses on understanding machine learning concepts and tools. This includes machine learning basics with a broad overview of algorithms, techniques, concepts and applications, followed by a tour of the entire Python machine learning ecosystem. Brief guides for useful machine learning tools, libraries and frameworks are also covered.Part 2 details standard machine learning pipelines, with an emphasis on data processing analysis, feature engineering, and modeling. You will learn how to process, wrangle, summarize and visualize data in its various forms. Feature engineering and selection methodologies will be covered in detail with real-world datasets followed by model building, tuning, interpretation and deployment.
Part 3 explores multiple real-world case studies spanning diverse domains and industries like retail, transportation, movies, music, marketing, computer vision and finance. For each case study, you will learn the application of various machine learning techniques and methods. The hands-on examples will help you become familiar with state-of-the-art machine learning tools and techniques and understand what algorithms are best suited for any problem.
