The Scoring Basics Course follows the Machine Learning Basics course. It provides a first hands-on overview of how to apply prediction models to new data, while also managing the model lifecycle. Completion of this course will enable you to move on to more advanced courses in the ML Practitioner learning path.


Throughout the hands-on lessons, we will continue with the Haiku T-Shirts project we created in Basics 101-103, and apply the prediction model built in the Machine Learning Basics course to classify new customers as high revenue or not.

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 continue exploring a project to predict whether patients will be readmitted to a hospital.



Learning Objectives

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

1 - Deploy a model from the Lab to the Flow

2 - Prepare an unlabelled dataset for scoring

3 - Apply a prediction model to an unlabelled dataset

4 - Understand the basics of model lifecycle management
