Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs

Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs


"Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs" is a practical and beginner-friendly introduction to supervised machine learning, decision trees, and gradient boosting using Python. This is a self-paced course where you can:

  • Watch hands-on coding-focused video tutorials
  • Practice coding with cloud Jupyter notebooks
  • Build an end-to-end real-world course project
  • Earn a verified certificate of accomplishment
  • Interact with a global community of learners

You will solve 2 coding assignments & build a course project where you'll train ML models using a large real-world dataset. Prerequisite: Data Analysis with Python: Zero to Pandas.

Lesson 1 - Linear Regression with Scikit Learn
