Description

If you know the basics of Python, this hands-on session will help you to understand how you can build machine learning models using Python. Starting with a sample dataset, you will go through a set of steps to create and improve a baseline model by creating an end-to-end machine learning pipeline. Once you create a baseline model, you will evaluate different models against it and also tune the models to improve accuracy. The workshop will thus help you to gain practical skills in machine learning. The workshop involves hands-on coding. You will use colab. Hence, apart from a modern browser, you do not need any other software.
