In a world with abundant data, leveraging machines to learn valuable patterns from structured data can be extremely powerful. We explore the basics of machine learning, discussing concepts like regression, classification, model evaluation metrics, overfitting, variance versus bias, linear regression, ensemble methods, model selection, and hyperparameter optimization. Through powerful packages such as scikit-learn, students come away with a strong understanding of core concepts in machine learning as well as the ability to efficiently train and benchmark accurate predictive models. They gain hands-on experience building complex ETL pipelines to handle data in a variety of formats, developing models with tools like feature unions and pipelines to reduce duplicate work, and practicing tricks like parallelization to speed up prototyping and development.
The next Machine Learning course will run from 2018-04-09 to 2018-05-30. Classes are generally held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-9 PM Eastern, with some exceptions for holidays. The deadline for registration is 2018-03-30. The course tuition is $3,495.00 with early-bird discounts available.
The exact dates for the next session will be: 4/9, 4/11, 4/16, 4/18, 4/23, 4/25, 4/30, 5/2, 5/7, 5/9, 5/14, 5/16, 5/21, 5/23, 5/28, 5/30

"The data science skills I sharpened at The Data Incubator helped me analyze diversity in STEM education, model SaaS stock prices, and compare industry growth rates. The instructor's background in quantitative finance made for relevant use cases that benefit not only data scientists, but also data-driven finance people like myself."
"From day one I was getting my hands dirty working with data using industry-relevant tools. Having completed the program I'm now better equipped to manage engineering and product teams, and able to conduct sophisticated ad-hoc analysis. Everyone at TDI blew me away; truly exceptional."
"Their heavy focus on applied learning meant that I was working on real data and solving real problems right from the start. While lectures were a valuable component of their courses, the real learning took place while working on projects. These projects were practical, engaging, and instructive, and generally great opportunities to get hands-on experience with what I had learned in the lectures."
