How to Think About Machine Learning Algorithms
by Swetha Kolalapudi

Machine learning is behind some of the coolest technological innovations today, Contrary to popular perception, however, you don't need to be a math genius to successfully apply machine learning. As a data scientist facing any real-world problem, you first need to identify whether machine learning can provide an appropriate solution.

In this course, How to Think About Machine Learning Algorithms, you'll learn how to identify those situations. First, you will learn how to determine which of the four basic approaches you'll take to solve the problem: classification, regression, clustering or recommendation. Next, you'll learn how to set up the problem statement, features, and labels. Finally you'll plug in a standard algorithm to solve the problem. At the end of this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge required to recognize an opportunity for a machine learning application and seize it.
