Learn a simpler and more effective way to analyze data andpredict outcomes with Python

Machine Learning in Python shows you how to successfullyanalyze data using only two core machine learning algorithms, andhow to apply them using Python. By focusing on two algorithmfamilies that effectively predict outcomes, this book is able toprovide full descriptions of the mechanisms at work, and theexamples that illustrate the machinery with specific, hackablecode. The algorithms are explained in simple terms with no complexmath and applied using Python, with guidance on algorithmselection, data preparation, and using the trained models inpractice. You will learn a core set of Python programmingtechniques, various methods of building predictive models, and howto measure the performance of each model to ensure that the rightone is used. The chapters on penalized linear regression andensemble methods dive deep into each of the algorithms, and you canuse the sample code in the book to develop your own data analysissolutions.

Machine learning algorithms are at the core of data analyticsand visualization. In the past, these methods required a deepbackground in math and statistics, often in combination with thespecialized R programming language. This book demonstrates howmachine learning can be implemented using the more widely used andaccessible Python programming language.

  • Predict outcomes using linear and ensemble algorithmfamilies
  • Build predictive models that solve a range of simple andcomplex problems
  • Apply core machine learning algorithms using Python
  • Use sample code directly to build custom solutions

Machine learning doesn't have to be complex and highlyspecialized. Python makes this technology more accessible to a muchwider audience, using methods that are simpler, effective, and welltested. Machine Learning in Python shows you how to do this,without requiring an extensive background in math orstatistics.

From the Back Cover:

SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE WAY TO ANALYZE DATA AND PREDICT OUTCOMES WITH PYTHON

Machine learning focuses on prediction—using what you know to predict what you would like to know based on historical relationships between the two. At its core, it's a mathematical/algorithm-based technology that, until recently, required a deep understanding of math and statistical concepts, and fluency in R and other specialized languages. Machine Learning in Python simplifies machine learning for a broader audience and wider application by focusing on two algorithm families that effectively predict outcomes, and by showing you how to apply them using the popular and accessible Python programming language.

Author Michael Bowles draws from years of machine learning expertise to walk you through the design, construction, and implementation of your own machine learning solutions. The algorithms are explained in simple terms with no complex math, and sample code is provided to help you get started right away. You'll delve deep into the mechanisms behind the constructs, and learn how to select and apply the algorithm that will best solve the problem at hand, whether simple or complex. Detailed examples illustrate the machinery with specific, hackable code, and descriptive coverage of linear regression and ensemble methods helps you understand the fundamental processes at work in machine learning. The methods are effective and well tested, and the results speak for themselves.

Designed specifically for those without a specialized math or statistics background, Machine Learning in Python shows you how to:

  • Select the right algorithm for the job
  • Learn the mechanisms and prepare the data
  • Master core Python machine learning packages
  • Build versatile predictive models that work
  • Apply trained models in practice for various uses
  • Measure model performance for better QC and application
  • Use provided sample code to design and build your own model

About the Author:

MICHAEL BOWLES teaches machine learning at Hacker Dojo in Silicon Valley, consults on machine learning projects, and is involved in a number of startups in such areas as bioinformatics and high-frequency trading. Following an assistant professorship at MIT, Michael went on to found and run two Silicon Valley startups, both of which went public. His courses at Hacker Dojo are nearly always sold out and receive great feedback from participants.
