Overview

Machine learning uses computers to run predictive models that learn from existing data in order to forecast future behaviors, outcomes, and trends.

In this data science course, you will be given clear explanations of machine learning theory combined with practical scenarios and hands-on experience building, validating, and deploying machine learning models. You will learn how to build and derive insights from these models using R, and Azure Notebooks.

Kurp completed this course, spending 11 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
It took me about 11h to complete the course. I do not recommend it. The list of subjects is great, but the course does not offer interesting materials, the concepts are not properly explained and there is also no practice (a lot of pre-written code used by authors, no writing code expected by you). There are a lot of better intros to R available around the Intetnet.
