Course Description

This course will take you through the process of predictive analytics/predictive modeling. A statistical technique or machine learning algorithm is utilized to help predict an outcome. We will be utilizing Logistic Regression. In the course, we will take you through the process of how to accurately predict who survives the Titanic.

The goal of this course is to start you on your journey to becoming a top data analyst. To do that, you need to understand the methodology or methods at your disposal in solving these problems. By using a famous example (the Titanic Disaster), we will show you how to understand the problem in-front of you, how to explore your data, pre-process your data, how to create your first model, how to improve model accuracy, and look at some evaluation metrics.

We are lucky to have a top Kaggler as one of the instructors for this course. Aditya is an active Kaggler ranked in the top 5% (2018) of all the data scientists in the world, and is very knowledgeable about the process of solving data science problems. Ermin is the lead instructor and has been teaching data analysis for many years.


  • Explain the problem you are trying to solve.
  • Examine the data and test your hypotheses
  • Identify and treat missing values, find and treat outliers, and remove duplicates and/or highly correlated variables (data pre-processing)
  • Create, employ and predict with the logistic regression algorithm
  • Utilize feature engineering
  • Practice other methods to improve model accuracy


  • A course on R, as we do not cover R in-depth. Instead, the focus is on Predictive Modeling itself.

Instructor Details

Ermin Dedic

Ermin Dedic

I have a passion for anything data, whether it is applying statistical methods to data more generally, or utilizing a data-driven approach in the Healthcare or Finance/Banking industries.

I studied Psychology for 6-years, including 2 years of Graduate school, where I was training to be a Child/School Psychologist. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience a blend of course work and clinical work but also recognize some of the problems facing the mental health system and graduate school system. While I am very interested in finding a solution for the latter, this is a long-term goal.

I did ultimately decide to voluntarily leave the Grad program, it was via academics that I fell in love with statistics and statistical software like SPSS/SAS.

Furthermore, it was my Graduate school experience that not only solidified my interest in teaching, it's where I received a lot of positive feedback on my ability to break down complex topics.

I enjoy receiving messages from students who have passed exams, obtained interviews, or gained employment, from taking one of my courses.

Para meus alunos de língua portuguesa ...

Sou apaixonado por estatística, ciência de dados, programação orientada a objetos e psicologia / saúde mental. Eu desenvolvi um conhecimento em Programação e Estatística SAS através da minha escolaridade e auto-estudo. Também sou autodidata em programação orientada a objetos.

Eu sou um ex-aluno de graduação em psicologia educacional. Dois anos depois, decidi me retirar voluntariamente. Aprendi que o ambiente acadêmico tradicional e o ambiente clínico não eram o caminho adequado para promover mudanças em larga escala.

Ensinar é uma paixão há muito tempo. Criei meu primeiro curso de vídeo online em 2016 (um curso de Estatística). Foi um projeto de pura paixão. Como resultado de obter ótimos comentários, continuei! Atualmente, ensino os cursos de SAS, estatísticas e psicologia, mas também estou sempre aprendendo. Gosto de receber mensagens de alunos que passaram nos exames, obtiveram entrevistas ou obtiveram emprego ao fazer um de meus cursos.
