Welcome to the Machine Learning Fundamentals Skill Path!
Introduction to Machine learning
Learn what machine learning is!
Feature Engineering I: Data Transformations
Learn about feature engineering, data transformations and how to prepare your data before fitting machine learning models!
Supervised Learning I : Regressors, Classifiers and Trees
Learn about Supervised Learning algorithms like Linear and Logistic Regression, KNN, and Decision Trees
Feature Engineering II : Feature Selection Methods
Learn about feature selection methods in feature engineering.
Unsupervised Learning Algorithms I
Learn about Unsupervised Learning algorithms, their implementation and where they’re used.
Machine Learning Fundamentals: Final Portfolio
Show off your knowledge of ML fundamentals by developing your final portfolio project on a topic of your choice.
Hands-on learningDon't just watch or read about someone else coding — write your own code live in our online, interactive platform. You'll even get AI-driven recommendations on what you need to review to help keep you on track.
Projects in this skill path
Transforming Data into FeaturesPerform data transformations on a clothing company customer review dataset!
Honey ProductionFit a line to data about the honeybee population decline in the United States.
Tennis AceYou will create a linear regression model that predicts the outcome for a tennis player based on their playing habits. By analyzing and modeling The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) data, you will determine what it takes to be one of the best tennis players in the world.
Reviews from learners
- The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.ChrisCodecademy Learner @ USA
- I felt like I learned months in a week. I love how Codecademy uses learning by practice and gives great challenges to help the learner to understand a new concept and subject.RodrigoCodecademy Learner @ UK
- Brilliant learning experience. Very interactive. Literally a game changer if you're learning on your own.John-AndrewCodecademy Learner @ USA
