"How the hell can I learn ML in a single month?"
Good question - here's how...

First, you'll focus on practical, real-world machine learning.

Practical Machine Learning Workflow

Practical Machine Learning

Practical machine learning is all about getting results.

This course was created by practitionersnot by academics. Every project is lovingly crafted to teach you how to use machine learning to get results quickly, without confusion and headaches.

Our central philosophy at EliteDataScience is to learn by "doing shit."

We believe in flipping the traditional process on its head by starting with getting real results. Plus, it becomes much easier to master the theory and math once you can implement machine learning in practice.

You'll gain machine learning skills that can boost your career, big time.

Every project you'll complete is from the real business world (yes, that means you can brag about them in interviews). Want to see how ML can help in marketing, HR analytics, or even real-estate? Now you can, with hands-on practice solving valuable problems.

Machine learning is one of the most in-demand skills on the job market right now. And through this course, you'll get to practice the same machine learning tasks used by Fortune 500 companies and tech startups.

Whether you're an aspiring data scientist or you just want to apply machine learning in your current business, this course will teach you how.

Machine learning is in heavy demand!

Interactive Machine Learning Projects

With pretty graphics.

Have fun with interactive projects that are portfolio-ready.

Skip the boring textbooks. This course features 4 epic, hands-on projects that you'll complete through interactive Jupyter Notebooks.

Plus, these projects look very impressive in your portfolio or resume (yes, we'll teach you how to make pretty graphics, too).

Machine learning is an applied field, and it should be taught in a hands-on, "play-and-learn" way.

You're going to have fun... We're going to have fun... And together, we're going to get real results.

Walk away with hard-core practical skills that get real results.

Other courses spend weeks on deriving individual algorithms... Then, the course is over before you know it, and you still don't know how to actually apply them.

We think that's a crappy way to learn machine learning, and our masterclass flips this archaic approach on its head.

After you take a machine learning course, you should walk away feeling empowered to apply ML in your work and projects.

Unfortunately, so many other courses out there fail to deliver on this one simple promise. We won't, because we created this course specifically to bridge that gap.

Reliable and Valid Results

Ready, Aim, Hit!

Second, you'll complete 4 EPIC, portfolio-ready projects.

Quartermaster Q

Quartermaster Q

Project 1: Meet the quartermaster.

Who is this stern-looking old fellow, you may ask? This is none other than Q, the quartermaster from the classic James Bond franchise!

He appeared in iconic films such as From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), and The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). In fact, if you've watched any of the classic Bond films, you'll know that every successful mission requires at least two elements:

  1. A witty action star.
  2. Cool gadgets, sexy cars, and reliable tools (provided by Q).

So who's the action star in this course? It's you, of course! And you guessed it... this first project is all about equipping yourself with the best tools for the mission.

We might not be able to give you a slick new Aston Martin, but we'll sure as hell arm you with everything you need to tackle machine learning!

Think of this as an "orientation project on steroids." We'll introduce all the key concepts and libraries that will help us throughout the course.

Deep Dive Concepts:

  • A beginner-friendly crash-course on Python.
  • The best tools and libraries for machine learning.
  • The big picture concepts every practitioner must understand.
  • How to think about the real-world ML workflow.
  • Exactly where all the moving pieces fit in.

Project 2: Become a real-estate mogul.

What does it take to become a superstar real-estate mogul? A huge bank account? Shark-like negotiation skills? Connections in every corner of the town?

Well, those certainly help (a lot!)... But what you definitely need is the ability to value houses accurately for spotting good deals...

And that's the challenge we'll be tackling in our second project.

No, we're not going to drive to a thousand houses and take their measurements... Instead, we'll take advantage of machine learning to build a pricing model using data from thousands of homes.

This is a really fun and relevant dataset, and you'll have a blast exploring it!

After project #2, you'll find that so many previously confusing concepts will just "click" because you'll get to see the entire ML process from start to finish.

Plus, we'll explain the dozens of important decisions you'll need to make along the way, with special emphasis on the algorithms used for Supervised Learning: Regression.

Deep Dive Concepts:

  • Practical comparison of regression algorithms.
  • How to perform exploratory analysis like a pro.
  • Exactly when to apply different data preprocessing steps.
  • How to sample and split your data the right way.
  • The #1 secret to choosing the best model for the problem.

Project 3: Improve employee retention.

Data science and machine learning is revolutionizing many fields in exciting ways. One of the hottest uses for machine learning right now is in the human resources (HR) analytics.

For many companies, their most challenging task is finding, training, and keeping talented employees.

Therefore, it's in their best interest to identify employees likely to leave and then bribe them with a pay raise proactively address their concerns.

In this project, you'll build classification models for predicting employees likely to quit based on factors such as the average number of hours worked per week and the time since their last promotion.

In project #3, you'll learn our best tips for the art of machine learning, including how to build robust models that you can feel confident about.

You'll also become well-versed with algorithms for Supervised Learning: Classification.

Deep Dive Concepts:

  • Practical comparison of classification models.
  • How to perform feature engineering like a pro.
  • The easiest way to avoid overfitting your model.
  • How to evaluate your model using different error metrics.
  • Clever shortcuts that will save you hours of work.

Project 4: Discover customer segments.

Successful businesses use machine learning to create win-win situations for themselves and their customers. One effective way to do so is to use clustering methods to create better customer segments.

This allows firms to cut marketing waste by matching messages to customers more likely to respond. At the same time, customers benefit because they receive less but more relevant marketing.

Companies save money. Customers save more time to watch cat videos on YouTube. Win. Win.

In this project, you'll explore how unsupervised learning can be used to create customer segments. You'll get to use a cool customer purchasing dataset to practice various clustering methods.

Project #4 is about rounding out your machine learning skill set. After completing it, you'll feel confident that you can tackle any machine learning challenge you find interesting.

Plus, you'll have gained the valuable ability to apply Unsupervised Learning algorithms to solve meaningful business problems... That is a true badge of honor, even among ML professionals!

Deep Dive Concepts:

  • Practical comparison of clustering models.
  • How to perform dimensionality reduction like a pro.
  • Easy, yet effective ways to visualize your data.
  • How to create business value from your data.
  • Simple and smart ways to overcome roadblocks.
