Data Science With Jupyter
Master Data Science skills with easy-to-follow Python examples
About the Book
Step-by-step guide to practising data science techniques with Jupyter notebooks
Modern businesses are awash with data, making data driven decision-making tasks increasingly complex. As a result, relevant technical expertise and analytical skills are required to do such tasks. This book aims to equip you with just enough knowledge of Python in conjunction with skills to use powerful tool such as Jupyter Notebook in order to succeed in the role of a data scientist.
The book starts with a brief introduction to the world of data science and the opportunities you may come across along with an overview of the key topics covered in the book. You will learn how to setup Anaconda installation which comes with Jupyter and preinstalled Python packages. Before diving in to several supervised, unsupervised and other machine learning techniques, you’ll learn how to use basic data structures, functions, libraries and packages required to import, clean, visualize and process data. Several machine learning techniques such as regression, classification, clustering, time-series etc have been explained with the use of practical examples and by comparing the performance of various models.
By the end of the book, you will come across few case studies to put your knowledge to practice and solve real-life business problems such as building a movie recommendation engine, classifying spam messages, predicting the ability of a borrower to repay loan on time and time series forecasting of housing prices. Remember to practice additional examples provided in the code bundle of the book to master these techniques.
The book is intended for anyone looking for a career in data science, all aspiring data scientists who want to learn the most powerful programming language in Machine Learning or working professionals who want to switch their career in Data Science. While no prior knowledge of Data Science or related technologies is assumed, it will be helpful to have some programming experience.
