Applied Machine Learning

Advanced Logo Design

The best way to master Machine Learning is to understand the core concepts, be capable of explaining them with simple everyday examples, and be able to apply those to solving business problems. This course focuses on building up your theoretical and practical knowledge so that you can understand how to identify ML problems, choose the right algorithms for solving the problem at hand, build robust models in Python, and explain your models and communicate their results in common business language for colleagues, clients, and executives. You’ll learn from real world examples and apply your learnings to a variety of business problems.

Kirk has mentored me virtually throughout my career, throughout his inspiring and thoughtful social media communications. I've always admired Kirk's insights and wisdom, and he is one of my role models that I aspire to be. Kirk is a true leader, and my professional learning has certainly been improved by receiving his gifts of wisdom to the larger tech community.

I had the pleasure of taking Scientific Databases with Dr. Borne when he was at GMU. At the time I had some experience with databases; however, he allowed me to gain a better understanding of relational databases by allowing me to do independent research in a group setting. He is partially responsible for the career I have today.

I very highly recommend and strongly endorse Kirk Borne. He is without a doubt one of the most erudite and influential data scientists I've had the pleasure to interact with. I've known Kirk since 2010, and during that time I've witnessed him generate significant insights into some of the most difficult problems facing data science today -- from retail/marketing analytics to astroinformatics.
