Like most subjects, practice makes perfect in Data Science. In the capstone project, you will apply the skills learned across courses in the Practical Data Science with MATLAB specialization to explore, process, analyze, and model data. You will choose your own pathway to answer key questions with the provided data.
To complete the project, you must have mastery of the skills covered in other courses in the specialization. The project will test your ability to import and explore your data, prepare the data for analysis, train a predictive model, evaluate and improve your model, and communicate your results.
Import and Explore the Data
In this module you'll be introduced to the goals of the capstone project. You will complete the initial task of preparing a data set and performing an exploratory analysis.
Create and Evaluate Features
In this module you'll perform feature engineering. You'll create a response variable and investigate the relationships between features and the response variable.
Apply Machine Learning
In this module you will perform machine learning. You'll train and customize various models. Using validation data and common evaluation metrics you'll choose the most appropriate model for the problem.
Communicate Your Results
In this module, you'll learn a framework for creating a data science story and the importance of crafting your narrative for the intended audience, along with tips for creating meaningful visualizations.
