Total in-Class Hours: 35 Mon, Aug 26, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Tue, Aug 27, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Wed, Aug 28, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Thu, Aug 29, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Fri, Aug 30, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. RSVP Now! http://bit.ly/MachineLearningImmersive READ SYLLABUS and CURRICULUM http://bit.ly/MLImmersiveCourseSyllabus If you are aspiring programmer, whether beginner or jedi, this course is for new learners on the pursuit to master machine learning concepts. This course discusses the FUNDAMENTAL principles of machine learning. No prior machine learning experience necessary. Beyond doing your part as a hard working student, you walk away with skills that translate to the programming marketplace that can either cultivate your future programming career or give you a bump in your pre existing career by showing employers your new skillset. The decision on how hard you work lies with you. In this one week course, you will become involved in a decision-making process surrounding the usage of machine learning, how it can help achieve business and project goals, which machine learning techniques to use, potential pitfalls, and how to interpret the results. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself. More importantly, you'll learn about not only the theoretical underpinnings of learning, but also gain the practical know-how needed to quickly and powerfully apply these techniques to new problems.

Python for Web Scraping and Data Mining

Needs a location

Web Scraping and Content Mining. How To Scrape Amazon Product Details and Pricing using Python! We will teach you how to scrape AJAX with Selenium! Voted the most interesting course in NYC. YOU MUST RSVP here, Paid class: http://bit.ly/Web-Scraping-Python This workshop meets for three hours, 6.00pm - 9.00 pm Web Scraping is a method for extracting textual characters from websites so that they could be analyzed. Web scraping is sort of content mining, which means that you collect useful information from websites, including quotes, prices, news company info, etc. This method for gathering data is direct, either through looking at websites' html code or visual abstraction techniques using Python programming language. We start workshop by exploring different methods to gather data from Web. We go through the whole process of gathering, storing and analyzing data. For our examples we use real-life financial quotes and Annual reports 10-K. During the course we learn how to use numerous Python libraries - Urllib, Requests, Wget, BeautifulSoup 4.0, SSL, PDFminer3k, Twitter and others. You will Learn: - BeautifulSoup Python Library - How to use Urllib and Requests - Scrape Amazon and compare prices - Read and analyze PDF files - Store Data with CSV files - Scrape AJAX with Selenium • What to bring Bring your laptop
