Course Modules

This four-course specialization, Python Data Products for Predictive Analytics, covers topics such as basic data processing and visualization, design thinking and predictive analytics for data products, meaningful predictive modeling, and deploying machine learning models.

Basic Data Processing and Visualization

Develop data strategy and process for how data will be generated, collected, and consumed.

  • Load and process formatted datasets such as CSV and JSON
  • Clean datasets by filtering and removing outliers
  • Gain basic experience with data processing libraries such as numpy and data ingestion with urllib, requests

Design Thinking and Predictive Analytics for Data Products

This course builds on the data processing covered in the first module and introduces the basics of designing predictive models in Python. Learners will understand statistical learning concepts and various methods of building predictive models, culminating in a capstone project.

Meaningful Predictive Modeling

Learners will understand error measures, evaluate performance of regressors/classifiers, and learn techniques to avoid overfitting and achieve good generalization performance.

Deploying Machine Learning Models

This module covers project structure of interactive Python data applications, Python web server frameworks, best practices for deploying ML models, and deployment scripts and serialization of models.
