**Description**

**Comprehensive Course Description:**

Electrification was, without a doubt, the greatest engineering marvel of the 20th century. The electric motor was invented way back in 1821, and the electrical circuit was mathematically analyzed in 1827. But factory electrification, household electrification, and railway electrification all started slowly several decades later.

Fast forward to today. It’s the same story with Artificial Intelligence (AI). The field of AI was formally founded in 1956. But it’s only now—more than six decades later—that AI is expected to revolutionize the way humanity will live and work in the coming decades.

Data science is a large field of study that covers data systems and processes. These systems and processes are aimed at maintaining data sets as well as getting meaning out of them. Machine Learning (ML), a branch of AI, is the concept that systems can automatically learn and adapt from experience without human intervention. ML, essentially, aims to equip machines with independent learning techniques.

**Data Science & Machine Learning Full Course in 90 Hours**is exhaustive and covers various topics in both these fields in great detail.

Data science specialists use a combination of algorithms, applications, principles, and tools to gain a real sense of random data clusters. You are probably aware that organizations worldwide are generating exponential amounts of data. So, monitoring and storing all this data becomes very difficult. This is where data science plays a vital role by focusing on data modeling and data warehousing.

Both AI and ML are important to data scientists because they can work equally well in both with ease. The expertise of these skilled professionals allows them to switch roles quickly, too. And in the life cycle of a data science project, this can be a critical factor.

Course content:

**1. Python for Data Science and Data Analysis**

**2. Data Understanding and Data Visualization with Python**

a. This section deals with the in-depth treatment of data science packages both for data manipulation as well as data visualization.

f. 2D and 3D visualizations, interactive visualizations, and geographic maps are also covered.

g. Proceeding in data science with being able to effectively play with the data using famous packages makes progress much worse, and this section addresses this concern.

**3. Mastering Probability and Statistics in Python**

a. Obviously, concepts in data science are not new. In fact, it is also believed that data science is merely a renamed version of Probability and Statistics. Well, without being biased to that extent, we will say that the practical nature of applications was uncovered earlier even though the theory traces back to Probability and Statistics.

b. One way or the other, knowing Probability and Statistics makes a significant theoretical as well as practical difference.

c. Most of the courses on Probability and Statistics, however, fail to link the data science practices and theory by merely focusing on the axiomatic treatment of the subject.

d. We build this section by keeping the practical needs of data science in mind as well as the importance of theory.

e. Wherever important, we deliberately explain and show the relationships by derivations and even through Python Code.

f. This section builds a very sound basis for understanding the classical concepts in data science as well as its more recent generalizations.

g. We start with the very basics of Probability, go through inference and estimations, link famous machine learning techniques with conditional probability, and finally, show that Deep Neural Networks indeed learn a probability function eventually.

**4. Machine Learning Crash Course**

a. Although several concepts, or even all, fall under the umbrella of Probability and Statistics, it turns out that most of the concepts have made their own practical place, mostly derived through engineering, with the name of Machine Learning. For example, the term “overfitting” is now referring to the area of machine learning.

b. Machine Learning brings its own set of practices to reach the demands of automation. Hence, mastering these concepts becomes inevitable.

c. This section is actually a quick walkthrough of the concepts in Machine Learning and focuses on all the theoretical as well as practical concepts.

e. We also elaborate on more advanced areas of machine learning, which we later present as separate sections.

**5. Feature Engineering and Dimensionality Reduction with Python**

a. Knowing the sections you have covered thus far certainly brings you a huge clarity of the field. But there is still one thing that brings the improvements in the results with a reasonable margin, and that is data preprocessing or data preparation.

b. Most of the data science today relies on preparing the data suitable for machine learning models. An effective way of data preparation, most of the time, becomes a game-changer.

c. This section focuses on data preparation for machine learning models.

d. We build this section to provide an understanding of why selecting features and transforming features are important.

g. We explain the required mathematical background in a simple way.

h. Finally, all the concepts are made more easily understandable by coding relevant examples in Python.

**6. Artificial Neural Networks with Python**

a. With the availability of a huge quantity of data as well as computation power, a relatively old machine learning model, Artificial Neural Network turns out to be the game-changer in data science.

b. Artificial Neural Network can approximate almost any pattern in the data. Further, it has a much greater data utilization capacity as compared to the more classical methods.

c. With the recent rise of ANNs, a lot of practical techniques are also discovered, particularly for ANNs.

d. Also, working with a large amount of data brings its own challenges for learning algorithms.

e. In this section, we address all these concerns and cover ANNs in depth.

f. We also introduce another framework, “TensorFlow,” for working in ANNs.

g. With this section in hand, you can now target much larger machine learning problems.

**7. Convolutional Neural Networks with Python**

a. ANNs, in its most basic form, is not that suitable for image data and for the problems in computer vision.

b. Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are considered a game-changer in the field of computer vision. CNNs are not limited to images only. You’ll find them everywhere now, from audio processing to more advanced reinforcement learning (i.e., Resnets in AlphaZero). So, the understanding of CNNs becomes inevitable in all the fields of data science. Even most of the Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) rely on CNNs nowadays.

**9. Reinforcement Learning**

a. The training data is not always available, and the learner may have to learn through experience. This, in fact, is true in most the cases, particularly when the learner is acting in an uncertain and non-stationary environment.

b. The learner needs to act in real-time and, hence, has to decide its action in real- time in response to the environment (a self-driving car, for example).

c. Reinforcement Learning (RL) brings its own challenges, and their solutions sometimes are much different than the solutions offered by supervised as well as unsupervised learning.

d. Large scale RL problems do require the knowledge of ANNs to model the problem.

e. Reinforcement Learning is considered as game-changer in the field of data science, particularly after observing the winnings of CHESS and GO against human champions. However, RL is not restricted to games only. RL is everywhere now, ranging from Recommender Systems to more advanced applications in stock prediction. So, an understanding of RL becomes inevitable in all the fields of data science.
