À propos du cours

If you want to break into competitive data science, then this course is for you! Participating in predictive modelling competitions can help you gain practical experience, improve and harness your data modelling skills in various domains such as credit, insurance, marketing, natural language processing, sales’ forecasting and computer vision to name a few. At the same time you get to do it in a competitive context against thousands of participants where each one tries to build the most predictive algorithm. Pushing each other to the limit can result in better performance and smaller prediction errors. Being able to achieve high ranks consistently can help you accelerate your career in data science. In this course, you will learn to analyse and solve competitively such predictive modelling tasks. When you finish this class, you will: - Understand how to solve predictive modelling competitions efficiently and learn which of the skills obtained can be applicable to real-world tasks. - Learn how to preprocess the data and generate new features from various sources such as text and images. - Be taught advanced feature engineering techniques like generating mean-encodings, using aggregated statistical measures or finding nearest neighbors as a means to improve your predictions. - Be able to form reliable cross validation methodologies that help you benchmark your solutions and avoid overfitting or underfitting when tested with unobserved (test) data. - Gain experience of analysing and interpreting the data. You will become aware of inconsistencies, high noise levels, errors and other data-related issues such as leakages and you will learn how to overcome them. - Acquire knowledge of different algorithms and learn how to efficiently tune their hyperparameters and achieve top performance. - Master the art of combining different machine learning models and learn how to ensemble. - Get exposed to past (winning) solutions and codes and learn how to read them. Disclaimer : This is not a machine learning online course in the general sense. This course will teach you how to get high-rank solutions against thousands of competitors with focus on practical usage of machine learning methods rather than the theoretical underpinnings behind them. Prerequisites: - Python: work with DataFrames in pandas, plot figures in matplotlib, import and train models from scikit-learn, XGBoost, LightGBM. - Machine Learning: basic understanding of linear models, K-NN, random forest, gradient boosting and neural networks.

Top Kagglers gently introduce one to Data Science Competitions. One will have a great chance to learn various tips and tricks and apply them in practice throughout the course. Highly recommended!

It's tough to pass this course tasks and the course itself not 100% polished, but it makes it very interesting in the practical aspect - I learned more. Also, I believe lectors gave us a lot of very helpful material.

Really liked the class. Didn't expect to learn a whole lot of new things, but they have some great tips and tricks here and there that I hadn't come across yet which made it worthwhile.

The content is well structured.

This was one of the better online courses I've taken in Machine Learning. There is so much content in this course, and I've learned a lot from the exercises and working on the Predicting Future Sales competition.

A must for every data scientist, the courses are amazing and you learn a lot a tips.

If you have just started data science, you’ll be able to follow the course but you may not understand all the underlying ideas

Very nice course and final project is actually challenging and a great learning experience when learner attempts to do it completely on their own without reading forums or looking at examples on Kaggle.

Challenging in a fun way, puts things I've learnt before in a different perspective. Overall very practical knowledge with lots of use-cases and not much theory. it's like an awesome lab in grad school.

the best course i did on coursera. it was amazing to learn from the winners of previous competitions.

definitely not from starters. you need to decent background. it is climbing a hill from the get-go

V​ery interesting course, touching on a lot of topics. It is on the hard side, especially the final project, but it is worth it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.

Clear and challenging at the same time, perfect!

I did quite a few courses on Coursera now (Specialisation in Data Science and Deep Learning and this one is clearly in my top

Great course.

Even if some lessons may seem too theorical, it all comes together during the final project which pushes you to look back and apply what you learned.

Very practical course for those who are already good at ML. Not academical, not beginner-level. Once you get used to Russian accent it goes really well :)
