PyDataMCR - Hands On Machine Learning

Code Computerlove

Tonight we will be working through the the German Credit Risk(https://www.kaggle.com/uciml/german-credit) dataset. Please have a read of the details on the link. We will briefly introduce Kaggle and the dataset before jumping into a short live exploration of the data. After which, you are free to get into it yourself or with your neighbours! This is for you if you are: • interested in data analysis and machine learning • beginner through to advanced • R user, python user, or use other open source analysis software If you are comfortable doing so you are welcome to split off from the live exploration to dive into the data yourself, and contribute to the discussion with any findings – we'll have a slack channel where people can share and ask questions. There will be mentors on the night who can help you if you are fairly new to the programming language of your choice and/or new to analysis and machine learning. To save time before the meetup, make sure you have what you need. The simplest way for Python is with Anaconda, a cross-platform Python distribution for data analytics and scientific computing. Install here https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/install/ . All other open source tools are welcome too! Here is how to install R and do a tiny project: https://machinelearningmastery.com/machine-learning-in-r-step-by-step/ Here are some common R packages for machine learning https://www.kdnuggets.com/2015/06/top-20-r-machine-learning-packages.html BYOL(Bring your own laptops!) Some useful Tutorials if it's your first time: * Python: https://www.datacamp.com/community/open-courses/kaggle-python-tutorial-on-machine-learning * R: https://www.datacamp.com/community/open-courses/kaggle-r-tutorial-on-machine-learning * Excel: https://www.kaggle.com/c/titanic/discussion/28323 There will be food and refreshments provided by the sponsors of this event, Code Computerlove, to help you through.
