Description

Even as the number of machine learning frameworks and libraries increases on a daily basis, scikit-learn is retaining its popularity with ease. In particular, scikit-learn features extremely comprehensive support for ensemble learning, an important technique to mitigate overfitting. In this course, Employing Ensemble Methods with scikit-learn, you will gain the ability to construct several important types of ensemble learning models. First, you will learn decision trees and random forests are ideal building blocks for ensemble learning, and how hard voting and soft voting can be used in an ensemble model. Next, you will discover how bagging and pasting can be used to control the manner in which individual learners in the ensemble are trained. Finally, you will round out your knowledge by utilizing model stacking to combine the output of individual learners. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to design and implement sophisticated ensemble learning techniques using the support provided by the scikit-learn framework.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, My name is Johnny Robbie and welcome to this court on employing ensemble methods with psych. It learned a little about myself. I have a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford and have offered companies such as Microsoft, Google and Flip Card at Google was one of the first engineers working on Really I'm collaborative editing in Global Dogs, and I hold four patterns for it. Online technologies. I currently work on my own Start up loony Con, a studio for high quality video content, Even as the number of machine learning frameworks and libraries increases on a billy pieces psychic learners retaining its popularity with ease. In particular, psychic loan features extremely comprehensive support for ensemble learning, an important technique to mitigate over fitting. In this course, you will gain the ability to construct several important types of ensemble learning more. First, you will learn decision trees on a random forests are ideal building blocks for ensemble learning and how hard boating and soft boating and be used in an ensemble model. You will understand the differences between averaging techniques on boasting techniques to build an ensemble. Next, you will discover how _______ and pasting can be used to control the manner in which individual learners in the ensemble are trained. You will also construct boosting Morley's, using both adaptive boosting Acela's greedy in boosting techniques. Finally, you will round out your knowledge by utilizing model stacking. Combine the output of individual learners when you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to design and implement sophisticated ensemble learning techniques using the support provided by the cyclone framework.
