Introduction to Machine Learning by CloudxLab

Introduction to Machine Learning, DrupalCamp Bangalore 2017


Learn how to apply various Machine Learning techniques for everyday business problems

What will you learn?

During this one-day workshop, you will have an exposure to Machine Learning using Python to analyze, draw intelligence and build powerful models using real-world datasets. You’ll also gain the insights to apply data processing and Machine Learning techniques in real time. More importantly, you will have a better understanding of how to improve solutions so that they become more optimal.

After completing this workshop, you will be able to build and optimize your own automated classifier to extract insights from real-world data sets.

Key Skills & Technologies
  • Python as the programming language.
  • Scikit-Learn, to apply machine learning algorithms.
  • Numpy (NumPy), for its array data structure and data manipulation functions.
  • matplotlib for its graph plotting functions.
  • GitHub to store your code online.
  • Jupyter notebook as your development and collaboration environment.
Workshop Plan

11:30 am to 1:30 pm - Overview of Machine Learning
2:30pm to 4:30 pm - Hands On

As part of the hands-on, you will learn to recognise the digits from images (OCR). As part of this exercise, we will build a classifier using scikit-learn with MNIST dataset.

This session would broadly cover the following:

  • Manipulation and plotting data
  • Preprocessing and exploring data
  • Training a binary classifier
  • Measuring Performance
  • Learning Multi-class classification

Please get a laptop with Anaconda installed. Take a look at this blog post:

Do I need any programming experience to attend?

You don’t need to have prior experience in Python as the workshop provides a general outline of the language. However, it will be useful if you have an exposure to another programming language.

What will I be doing?

In this workshop, you will deploy, evaluate and optimize your own automated classifier using Python for a real-world dataset. When you will complete this workshop, you will familiarize yourself with several classification algorithms.

Is it for me?

The workshop is intended for university students and professionals. Further, everyone, who is interested in knowing about Machine Learning can attend the camp.

What is the experience like?

The workshops offer first-hand experience on Machine Learning using Python. After the introductory session, you will already be coding! Our instructors are always there to help you out in case you get stuck.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, you will get a digital certificate which you can print or share on Linkedin.

I have some questions, can I talk to someone?
