Data Science with Python

By: Rohan Chopra, Aaron England, Mohamed Noordeen Alaudeen

Overview of this book

Data Science with Python begins by introducing you to data science and teaches you to install the packages you need to create a data science coding environment. You will learn three major techniques in machine learning: unsupervised learning, supervised learning, and reinforcement learning. You will also explore basic classification and regression techniques, such as support vector machines, decision trees, and logistic regression. As you make your way through the book, you will understand the basic functions, data structures, and syntax of the Python language that are used to handle large datasets with ease. You will learn about NumPy and pandas libraries for matrix calculations and data manipulation, discover how to use Matplotlib to create highly customizable visualizations, and apply the boosting algorithm XGBoost to make predictions. In the concluding chapters, you will explore convolutional neural networks (CNNs), deep learning algorithms used to predict what is in an image. You will also understand how to feed human sentences to a neural network, make the model process contextual information, and create human language processing systems to predict the outcome. By the end of this book, you will be able to understand and implement any new data science algorithm and have the confidence to experiment with tools or libraries other than those covered in the book.

"This book was written by me, Rohan Chopra, and co-authored by Aaron England and Mohamed Noordeen Alaudeen. Big thanks to my mentor, Sanjiban Sekhar Roy, for his support; also, thanks to all the team at Packt."

Aaron England earned a PhD from the University of Utah in Exercise and Sports Science with a cognate in Biostatistics. Currently, he resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he works as a data scientist at Natural Partners Fullscript.

Mohamed Noordeen Alaudeen is a lead data scientist at Logitech. Noordeen has more than 7 years of experience in building and developing end-toend big data and deep neural network systems. It all started when he decided to engage in data science for the rest of his life.

He is seasoned data science and big data trainer with both Imarticus Learning and Great Learning, which are two of the renowned data science institutes in India. Apart from his teaching, he does contribute his work to open-source. He has over 90+ repositories on GitHub, which have open-sourced his technical work and data science material. He is an active influencer( with over 22,000+ connections) on Linkedin, helping the data science community.
