Machine Learning with Python

This online course provides a hands-on introduction to some widely-used methods in machine learning (ML). Students will learn how to apply ready-made ML methods in the programming language Python to particular (“real-world”) problems.

The course teaches you how to use the programming language Python to gather data from different online sources and how to fit simple models, such as linear or decision tree models, to this data.

Course description

Our every-day lives can be substantially affected by political decisions. Some of these decisions are based on predictions obtained by fitting statistical models to data. As a point in case, consider school closures that are decided based on predictions obtained from fitting epidemiological models to healthcare data.

This online course provides a hands-on introduction to some widely-used methods in machine learning (ML). Students will learn how to apply ready-made ML methods in the programming language Python to particular (“real-world”) problems. The course teaches you how to use the programming language Python to gather data from different online sources and how to fit simple models, such as linear or decision tree models, to this data.

The course consists of coding assignments that require students to complete ready-made Python notebooks (which combine Python code snippets with textual explanations of the code). Students can also choose from a set of mini-projects that require to solve small data analysis tasks and to prepare a report in the form of a Python notebook.

The grading will be based entirely on the coding assignments and student projects.

There will not be an exam and there is no particular schedule except for the deadlines for course exercises.

Application deadline: 22 March 2021
