Probabilistic graphical models (PGMs) are a rich framework for encoding probability distributions over complex domains: joint (multivariate) distributions over large numbers of random variables that interact with each other. These representations sit at the intersection of statistics and computer science, relying on concepts from probability theory, graph algorithms, machine learning, and more. They are the basis for the state-of-the-art methods in a wide variety of applications, such as medical diagnosis, image understanding, speech recognition, natural language processing, and many, many more. They are also a foundational tool in formulating many machine learning problems. This course is the first in a sequence of three.
There are many ways to get started with studying machine learning. I have previously written a lot about how to design your own curriculum and roadmap as an alternative to taking courses. This approach allows you to pick and choose free, or low-cost, resources from across the internet that suit both your learning style and budget. However, when you are just starting out on the beginning of your journey into machine learning it can often be useful to follow at least a short course that will guide you through the basic concepts first. This will give you a good foundational overview of the field and it will make it easier to design your own learning path and then continue on with deeper self-directed learning.
This course, Machine Learning for Accounting with Python, introduces machine learning algorithms (models) and their applications in accounting problems. It covers classification, regression, clustering, text analysis, time series analysis. This course provides an entry point for students to be able to apply proper machine learning models on business related datasets with Python to solve various problems. Accounting Data Analytics with Python is a prerequisite for this course. This course is running on the same platform (Jupyter Notebook) as that of the prerequisite course.
This course aims at providing an introductory and broad overview of the field of ML with the focus on applications on Finance. Supervised Machine Learning methods are used in the capstone project to predict bank closures. Simultaneously, while this course can be taken as a separate course, it serves as a preview of topics that are covered in more details in subsequent modules of the specialization Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Finance. The goal of Guided Tour of Machine Learning in Finance is to get a sense of what Machine Learning is, what it is for and in how many different financial problems it can be applied to. The course is designed for three categories of students: Practitioners working at financial institutions such as banks, asset management firms or hedge funds Individuals interested in applications of ML for personal day trading Current full-time students pursuing a degree in Finance, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or other related disciplines who want to learn about practical applications of ML in Finance Experience with Python (including numpy, pandas, and IPython/Jupyter notebooks), linear algebra, basic probability theory and basic calculus is necessary to complete assignments in this course.
This course introduces the concepts of Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning. We'll discuss machine learning types and tasks, and machine learning algorithms. You'll explore Python as a popular programming language for machine learning solutions, including using some scientific ecosystem packages which will help you implement machine learning. Next, this course introduces the machine learning tools available in Microsoft Azure. We'll review standardized approaches to data analytics and you'll receive specific guidance on Microsoft's Team Data Science Approach.
In today's technologically driven world, data is the most valuable resource. Data is vital to any company's success because it allows for better and faster decision-making. Data science combines different algorithms, tools, and machine learning principles. This is where hidden patterns are found in raw data. As the data generated and analyzed continues to increase at an exponential rate, data analytics will be in high demand. Data science careers are promising.
Machine learning is the foundation for predictive modeling and artificial intelligence. If you want to learn about both the underlying concepts and how to get into building models with the most common machine learning tools this path is for you. In this course, you will learn the core principles of machine learning and how to use common tools and frameworks to train, evaluate, and use machine learning models. This course is designed to prepare you for roles that include planning and creating a suitable working environment for data science workloads on Azure. You will learn how to run data experiments and train predictive models. In addition, you will manage, optimize, and deploy machine learning models into production.
Apache Spark is the de-facto standard for large scale data processing. This is the first course of a series of courses towards the IBM Advanced Data Science Specialization. We strongly believe that is is crucial for success to start learning a scalable data science platform since memory and CPU constraints are to most limiting factors when it comes to building advanced machine learning models. In this course we teach you the fundamentals of Apache Spark using python and pyspark. We'll introduce Apache Spark in the first two weeks and learn how to apply it to compute basic exploratory and data pre-processing tasks in the last two weeks.
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee is offering a five-month online course on data science and machine learning (ML). The course is conducted by Imarticus Learning in association with iHUB DivyaSampark to enable candidates to leverage data Science and ML for effective decision-making. Prof Sudeb Dasgupta, project director of iHUB DivyaSampark said in a press release, "We bring iHUB DivyaSampark's expertise in building outstanding programs with IITs and Imarticus' technical expertise to deliver an outstanding learning experience through a holistic approach. Together, we envision creating a skilled workforce for innovation and digital growth." For more information, go through the brochure.
