#### Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution is here! The technology is progressing at a massive scale and is being widely adopted in the Healthcare, defense, banking, gaming, transportation and robotics industries.

Machine Learning is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence that enables machines to improve at a given task with experience. Machine Learning is an extremely hot topic; the demand for experienced machine learning engineers and data scientists has been steadily growing in the past 5 years. According to a report released by Research and Markets, the global AI and machine learning technology sectors are expected to grow from \$1.4B to \$8.8B by 2022 and it is predicted that AI tech sector will create around 2.3 million jobs by 2020.

The purpose of this course is to provide students with knowledge of key aspects of machine learning regression techniques in a practical, easy and fun way. Regression is an important machine learning technique that works by predicting a continuous (dependant) variable based on multiple other independent variables. Regression strategies are widely used for stock market predictions, real estate trend analysis, and targeted marketing campaigns.

The course provides students with practical hands-on experience in training machine learning regression models using real-world dataset. This course covers several technique in a practical manner, including:

· Simple Linear Regression

· Multiple Linear Regression

· Polynomial Regression

· Logistic Regression

· Decision trees regression

· Ridge Regression

· Lasso Regression

· Artificial Neural Networks for Regression analysis

· Regression Key performance indicators

The course is targeted towards students wanting to gain a fundamental understanding of machine learning regression models. Basic knowledge of programming is recommended. However, these topics will be extensively covered during early course lectures; therefore, the course has no prerequisites, and is open to any student with basic programming knowledge. Students who enroll in this course will master machine learning regression models and can directly apply these skills to solve real world challenging problems.

#### Who this course is for:

• Data Scientists who want to apply their knowledge on Real World Case Studies
• Machine Learning Enthusiasts who look to add more projects to their Portfolio
