Getting Started with Machine Learning in Python


Learn the fundamentals of supervised learning by using scikit-learn to make predictions about bank loans! You’ll discover how to build classification models that can predict loan application outcomes, as well as regression models to predict loan applicant salaries.

We will be using DataCamp Workspace. All you need is a DataCamp account. If you need help, read the Getting Started with Workspace tutorial. Note that members of some enterprise groups do not yet have access to use DataCamp Workspace. Create a free DataCamp account with your personal email address to follow along.

We recommend that you have taken the following course before attending:
