Machine Learning Basics

The Machine Learning Course is designed to provide a first hands-on overview of basic Dataiku DSS machine learning concepts so that you can easily create and evaluate your first models in DSS. Completion of this course will enable you to move on to more advanced courses.

In this course, we'll work with two use cases. To illustrate concepts, we'll use a Hospital Readmission project to predict whether or not a patient is likely to be readmitted to the hospital.

Then, in the hands-on lessons, we will continue with the Haiku T-Shirts project we created in Basics 101-103, and use the historical data about customers to predict whether or not a new customer will become a high revenue customer.

Before each hands-on section, you will have a chance to grasp each new concept by watching short videos. In the concept videos, we’ll explore a model that predicts whether a patient will be readmitted to a hospital, based on features such as demographics.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

1 - Prepare a dataset for machine learning

2 - Create models using visual machine learning

3 - Evaluate and tune your models

4 - Incorporate fundamentals of Explainable AI
