  4. Linear Classification and Regression 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernels: part1, part2, part3, part4, part5
  5. Bagging and Random Forest 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernels: part1, part2, part3
  6. Feature Engineering and Feature Selection 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernel
  7. Unsupervised Learning: Principal Component Analysis and Clustering 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernel
  8. Vowpal Wabbit: Learning with Gigabytes of Data 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernel
  9. Time Series Analysis with Python, part 1 🇬🇧 🇷🇺 🇨🇳. Predicting future with Facebook Prophet, part 2 🇬🇧, 🇨🇳 Kaggle Kernels: part1, part2
  10. Gradient Boosting 🇬🇧 🇷🇺, 🇨🇳, Kaggle Kernel

Throughout the course we are maintaining a student rating. It takes into account credits scored in assignments and Kaggle competitions. They say, rating highly motivates to finish the course. Top students (according to the final rating) are listed on a special page.


Discussions between students are held in the #mlcourse_ai channel of the OpenDataScience Slack team. Fill in this form to get an invitation closer to the start of a new session.

The course is free but you can support organizers by making a pledge on Patreon (monthly support) or a one-time payment on Ko-fi. Thus you'll foster the spread of Machine Learning in the world!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
