Introduction to Machine Learning
This course focuses on a practical approach to machine learning to effectively make predictions from data. In this class you will learn to load and analyze your data with Pandas (a data analysis library), build visualizations with pyplot, and create predictive models using scikit-learn (a machine learning library).
