skill PathIntermediate Machine Learning

Machine Learning is exciting because it is so powerful: we can expose a computer to just a bit of data and it can make generalizations that apply to something new. That’s phenomenal! Better yet, we can combine, tune, and amplify our models to make them even more powerful. This Skill Path is the next step in your Machine Learning Journey. In it, you will leverage tools like Ensemble Methods and Hyperparameter tuning to power up your machine learning models. You will add new tools to your machine learning toolbox, including Naive Bayes Classifiers and Support Vector Machines, and apply LDA to reduce your data’s dimensionality.
