Course 2: Supervised Machine Learning

a. Statistical inference

Linear Regression (Part 1): We’ll explore the simple framework of OLS and multi-dimensional regression.

Linear Regression (Part 2): Random design matrix, Normal regression, Pseudo Least Squares and other extensions…

The Logistic Regression: One of the fundamentals algorithms for classification.

b. Core algorithms

The Bayes Classifier: At the core of any algorithm, the Bayes Classifier is considered as one of the first algorithm to master.

Support Vector Machine: Todo

Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) and QDA : Intuition behind LDA, when it should be used, and the maths behind it. We’ll also quick cover the Quadratic version of LDA.

Introduction to Time Series : A first approach to exploring a time series in Python with open data.

Key Concepts in Time Series : Stationarity, ergodicity… We’ll cover the key concepts of time series.

Basics of Time Series Forecasting : How do we make a series stationary ? How do we forecast ?

Time Series Forecasting with Facebook Prophet : Explore time series forecasting using the Prophet open-source package.

Course 3: Optimization and tuning

GridSearch vs. RandomizedSearch : When it comes to parameter selection, you usually encounter 2 main solutions. GridSearch and RandomizedSearch. What is the main difference between these 2 techniques ? What are the pros and cons of each technique ?

Bayesian Hyperparameter Optimisation (HyperOpt) : Bayesian Hyperparameter Optimization is a great alternative to GridSearch and RandomizedSearch. How does it work ? How do you implement it in Python ?

AutoML with h2o : The interest in AutoML is rising over time. AutoML algorithms are reaching really good rankings in data science competitions. But what is AutoML ? How does it work ? When to use it ? And how can you implement an AutoML pipeline in Python ?
