Machine Learning is getting increasingly famous for new aspirants to learn. I have seen many start this journey of never-ending learning start using Python or R to begin their journey. Due to all coding and no visual cue’s many often miss the joy of creating features and experimenting with data using Excel.

I started my journey of Data Science with Excel, which helped me create a visual memory for creating features. My love for Data Science began with this simple yet powerful tool and a plethora of opportunities to solve new problems.

In this video series, I will extract features using the Titanic Data from Kaggle. Excel will be used to do missing value treatment, engineering new features, creating test and train datasets. Python is our choice of tool for modelling. Hopefully, as a beginner, you will begin to discover Data Science as I have.
