I am very pleased to announce that my next course, ‘Preparing Data for Feature Engineering and Machine Learning in Microsoft Azure‘ is released on Pluralsight.
This course is designed in partnership with Microsoft and will be part of 2 different data paths:
The paths are now LIVE.
Full Disclosure: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I receive a commission when you purchase through them.
The course covers the following modules:
Getting Started with Azure Machine Learning
Get an introduction to Azure Machine Learning and different services Azure provides to run machine learning tasks
Differentiating Data, Features, Targets, and Models
Going back to absolute basics, and understand the basic terms like data, features, targets, and models
Preparing Input Data for Machine Learning Models
Run Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA). In this module, we will also do various data preparation tasks like Sampling, binning, dealing with outliers, record sampling, attribute sampling, discretizing data, etc.,
Handling Missing Data
We will discuss different strategies to handle missing data and their advantages and disadvantages.
Role of Feature Engineering in Machine Learning
This module explores the role of feature engineering in machine learning. Also, I have discussed the feature engineering techniques for numeric and non-numeric data.
Split a Data Set into Training and Testing Subsets
Strategies to split the dataset into training and test subsets, in a way to avoid the issue of data leakage
Identify Data-level Issues in Machine Learning Models
Some machine learning models have specific data requirements. This module explores all the common data level requirements of different machine learning models.
So, What’s Next?
Here are some clips from the course uploaded on YouTube.
Cross-validation in Machine Learning
How One-hot Encoding Works (and Demo)
One-hot Encoding Categorical Features
With the course, you also get all the code material I used in the course in the Discussion files section. You have a discussion forum, where you can post your doubts. I will make sure to reply to you as soon as possible.
In addition, you also get MCQs to test your understanding
