This course will investigate data mining and machine learning algorithms in supervised and unsupervised learning. Students will understand how to use the Python/ R programming language for performing clustering, classification, and regression analysis. In addition, students will learn the capabilities and operation of many algorithms, including decision trees, k-means, k-nearest neighbors, linear regression, ID3 for Decision Trees, and the Perceptron. "Being CDML certified will help you stand out from the crowd and get your chance to apply for desirable positions."
