Chapter 1, The Python Machine Learning Ecosystem, discusses the features of key libraries and explains how to prepare your environment to best utilize them.
Chapter 2, Build an App to Find Underpriced Apartments, explains how to create a machine learning application that will make finding the right apartment a little bit easier.
Chapter 3, Build an App to Find Cheap Airfares, covers how to build an application that continually monitors fare pricing, checking for anomalous prices that will generate an alert we can quickly act on.
Chapter 4, Forecast the IPO Market Using Logistic Regression, takes a closer look at the IPO market. We'll see how we can use machine learning to help us decide which IPOs are worth a closer look and which ones we may want to take a pass on.
Chapter 5, Create a Custom Newsfeed, explains how to build a system that understands your taste in news, and will send you a personally tailored newsletter each day.
Chapter 6, Predict whether Your Content Will Go Viral, tries to unravel some of the mysteries. We'll examine some of the most commonly shared content and attempt to find the common elements that differentiate it from content people were less willing to share.
Chapter 7, Use Machine Learning to Forecast the Stock Market, discusses how to build and test a trading strategy. We'll spend more time, however, on how not to do it.
Chapter 8, Classifying Images with Convolutional Neural Networks, details the process of creating a computer vision application using deep learning.
Chapter 9, Building a Chatbot, explains how to construct a chatbot from scratch. Along the way, we'll learn more about the history of the field and its future prospects.
Chapter 10, Build a Recommendation Engine, explores the different varieties of recommendation systems. We'll see how they're implemented commercially and how they work. Finally, we'll implement our own to recommendation engine for finding GitHub repositories.
Chapter 11, What's Next?, summarizes what has been covered so far in this book and what the next steps are from this point on. You will learn how to apply the skills you have gained to other projects, real-life challenges in building and deploying machine learning models, and other common technologies that data scientists frequently use.
