Mastering Machine Learning with Python





The Python ecosystem is growing and may become the dominant platform for machine learning. The primary rationale for adopting Python for machine learning is because it is a general purpose programming language that we can use both for R&D and in production. In this talk I will discuss 1. Python and its rising use for machine learning, 2. SciPy and the functionality it provides with NumPy, Matplotlib and Pandas. 3. scikit-learn for machine learning algorithms, TensorFlow and Keras for Deep learning and PyTorch for Natural Language Processing, 4. How to setup your Python ecosystem for machine learning and what versions to use. At the end I will also give case studies on using this Python ecosystem for biomedical applications.


This talk will be of general in nature. Those who are witnessing the recent AI hype should be able to follow my talk. Basic python knowledge is assumed.
