Introduction to Machine Learning with Python
English flag Workshop Machine Learning / AI
SPy - Hall B (-1.57)
Friday 09. March: 13:10

In this half-day workshop, we'll take a walk through a Kaggle competition on house prices to explore our dataset. Then, we'll build a model to submit our predictions to Kaggle. Finally, we'll introspect what our model has learned. By the end of the course, you should have an idea of how to get competing on Kaggle or building your own models with Python and scikit-learn.

Students are expected to arrive ready to learn and with all packages properly installed. There will also be some theoretical discussions on machine learning practices, and some group work.
