Webinar (English): Learn classification algorithms using Python and scikit-learn

April 25, 2020 10:00 pm GST

Interested in Machine Learning? Join us at this webinar where we compare different classification algorithms with a detailed walk-through of each of them with a hands-on experience.

Classification is when the feature to be predicted contains categories of values. Each of these categories is considered as a class into which the predicted value falls and hence has its name, classification.

Classification algorithms which we will discuss:

  • Naive Bayes
  • Logistic regression
  • K-nearest neighbors
  • (Kernel) SVM
  • Decision tree
  • Ensemble learning

In this webinar, we will be using a data set that contains information about customers of an online trading platform to classify whether a given customer’s probability of churn will be high, medium, or low.

Services Used:

  • Watson Studio
