Applied Machine Learning

Advanced Logo Design
The best way to master Machine Learning is to understand the core concepts, be capable of explaining them with simple everyday examples, and be able to apply those to solving business problems. This course focuses on building up your theoretical and practical knowledge so that you can understand how to identify ML problems, choose the right algorithms for solving the problem at hand, build robust models in Python, and explain your models and communicate their results in common business language for colleagues, clients, and executives. You’ll learn from real world examples and apply your learnings to a variety of business problems.

During the Applied Machine Learning course, our instructor brought up a money laundering use case which is very useful since it's a critical part of my daily work. I also enjoyed joining the office hours to get feedback on the different assigments I had to work on.
