Scikit-Learn Cheat Sheet: Python Machine LearningJanuary 4th, 2017 in Python
Most of you who are learning data science with Python will have definitely heard already about
scikit-learn, the open source Python library that implements a wide variety of machine learning, preprocessing, cross-validation and visualization algorithms with the help of a unified interface.
If you're still quite new to the field, you should be aware that machine learning, and thus also this Python library, belong to the must-knows for every aspiring data scientist.
That's why DataCamp has created a
scikit-learn cheat sheet for those of you who have already started learning about the Python package, but that still want a handy reference sheet. Or, if you still have no idea about how
scikit-learn works, this machine learning cheat sheet might come in handy to get a quick first idea of the basics that you need to know to get started.
Either way, we're sure that you're going to find it useful when you're tackling machine learning problems!
scikit-learn cheat sheet will introduce you to the basic steps that you need to go through to implement machine learning algorithms successfully: you'll see how to load in your data, how to preprocess it, how to create your own model to which you can fit your data and predict target labels, how to validate your model and how to tune it further to improve its performance.
In short, this cheat sheet will kickstart your data science projects: with the help of code examples, you'll have created, validated and tuned your machine learning models in no time.
So what are you waiting for? Time to get started!
Begin with our scikit-learn tutorial for beginners, in which you'll learn in an easy, step-by-step way how to explore handwritten digits data, how to create a model for it, how to fit your data to your model and how to predict target values. In addition, you'll make use of Python's data visualization library
matplotlib to visualize your results.
