Amol Agrawal (~amol2)




This workshop aims for a thorough introduction to Machine Learning utilizing the excellent python library Scikit-Learn. The workshop will have the following goals

  • Understand what Machine Learning is.
  • Different ML approaches:
    • Supervised - Classification and Regression
    • Unsupervised - Clustering and Dimensionality Reduction
  • How Scikit-Learn helps to very easily apply ML concepts in python.
  • How ML is applied in the real world ( Eg. Spam Detection, Activity Recognition, Anomaly Detection ).
  • How to leverage this knowledge to build applications.

The workshop will utilize a 80-20 approach between practical and theory that will enable the attendees to better grasp the topic. The workshop will have exercises for the attendees to attempt as they learn.
