Applied Supervised Machine Learning for Cyber Security
Machine learning is a broad topic and in this short workshop, Mr. Charles Givre will walk you through the Supervised Learning process, with a particular focus on automating model tuning and feature engineering. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to create a simple model from a security-related data set, and optimize its performance.
