Interested in machine learning but confused by the jargon? If so, we made this course for you.
Machine learning is the fastest-growing field with constant groundbreaking research. If you're interested in any of the following, you'll be interested in ML:
And so much more!
No past knowledge is required: we'll start with the basics of Python and end with gradient-boosted decision trees and neural networks. The course will walk you through the fundamentals of machine learning, explaining mathematical foundations as well as practical implementations. By the end of our course, you'll have worked with five public data sets and have implemented all essential supervised learning models. After the course's completion, you'll be equipped to apply your skills to Kaggle data science competitions, business intelligence applications, and research projects.
We made the course quick, simple, and thorough. We know you're busy, so our curriculum cuts to the chase with every lecture. If you're interested in the field, this is a great course to start with.
Here are some of the Python libraries you'll be using:
Numpy (linear algebra)
Pandas (data manipulation)
Seaborn (data visualization)
Scikit-learn (optimized machine learning models)
Keras (neural networks)
XGBoost (gradient-boosted decision trees)
Here are the most important ML models you'll use:
Random Forrest Decision Trees
Gradient-Boosted Decision Trees

The Student Machine Learning Coalition is a global student-led organization that aims to make ML more accessible. Comprised of college and high school students, we provide a platform for students to join workshops, engage in Kaggle Competitions, and receive guidance on projects—all for free. SMLC chapters are in countries around the world (from the US to India to Nepal), and we comprise roughly 400 students worldwide. As an organization, our members have already placed in the top 1% and top 5% in multiple Kaggle data science competitions with 20,000+ attendees. Moreover, students have qualified for silver and bronze medals in competitions sponsored by companies and organizations such as Lyft and Harvard University’s Laboratory of Innovation Science.
Through Udemy, we hope to make our resources accessible to anyone that might be interested.
