Practical Machine Learning by Example in Python


Practical Machine Learning by Example in Python

A Deep Dive into Building Machine Learning and Deep Learning models

What you’ll learn
  • Develop complete machine learning/deep learning solutions in Python
  • Write and test Python code interactively using Jupyter notebooks
  • Build, train, and test deep learning models using the popular Tensorflow 2 and Keras APIs
  • Neural network fundamentals by building models from the ground up using only basic Python
  • Manipulate multidimensional data using NumPy
  • Load and transform structured data using Pandas
  • Build high quality, eye catching visualizations with Matplotlib
  • Reduce training time using free Google Colab GPU instances in the cloud
  • Recognize images using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)
  • Make recommendations using collaborative filtering
  • Detect fraud using autoencoders
  • Improve model accuracy and eliminate overfitting
  • Basic software development skills
  • Basic high school math, such as trigonometry and algebra


Are you a developer interested in building machine learning and deep learning models? Do you want to be proficient in the rapidly growing field of artificial intelligence? One of the fastest and easiest ways to learn these skills is by working through practical hands-on examples.

LinkedIn released it’s annual “Emerging Jobs” list, which ranks the fastest growing job categories. The top role is Artificial Intelligence Specialist, which is any role related to machine learning. Hiring for this role has grown 74% in the past few years!

In this course, you will work through several practical, machine learning examples, such as image recognition, sentiment analysis, fraud detection, and more. In the process, you will learn how to use modern frameworks, such as Tensorflow 2/Keras, NumPy, Pandas, and Matplotlib. You will also learn how use powerful and free development environments in the cloud, like Google Colab.

Each example is independent and follows a consistent structure, so you can work through examples in any order.  In each example, you will learn:

  1. The nature of the problem
  2. How to analyze and visualize data
  3. How to choose a suitable model
  4. How to prepare data for training and testing
  5. How to build, test, and improve a machine learning model
  6. Answers to common questions
  7. What to do next

Of course, there are some required foundations you will need for each example. Foundation sections are presented as needed. You can learn what interests you, in the order you want to learn it, on your own schedule.

Selected Reviews

clear the point and no jargon..neat presentation of notebooks with’s a step by step guide on creating machine learning models using Google colab..the models explained here are basic and thus perfect for beginners ,to understand how machine learning models are created based on the given problem and about techniques used to improve the accuracy..with the resources shared and Mr.Madhu’s immediate response to messages/QA,one can learn more about a topic..highly recommended to all machine learning enthusiasts.  – Ashraf UI

The cours is easy to understand and well presented, same thing for the practical examples Using google colab was a very good idea to present the course and to do the exercices , we can easily test a function or a line of code. The last three sections are very intresting, they are practical exercices for deep learning well presented and commentedIheb GANDOUZ

The way it is explained is really cool. I used to be bored after an hour during lectures, but the guide somehow makes it very interesting…. – Anu Priya J
