Learn Machine Learning in Bristol, UK

Machine learning involves helping the system to learn, understand, perform, and improve the solution to a given problem without any human intervention. This requires the usage of concepts of data science and artificial intelligence. The major algorithms of Machine Learning can be categorized into the following:

  • Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms: These involve using labeled data into the system for getting the past information and applying it to the new data. Here is how it is done:
    • The dataset is loaded into the system. It is the training data for the ML model.
    • This results in an algorithm that is used to create inferred function.
    • The algorithm is then used to make future predictions for the new inputs.
  • Unsupervised Machine Learning Algorithms: These algorithms use unlabelled, unorganized data to help train the model. They can’t provide the accurate result but they can infer a function by finding a hidden structured in the unstructured data.

Machine Learning helps the system learn without any human intervention. The right algorithm can help in evaluating and resolving a problem faster and better. Different domains have found applications of Machine Learning in their work. It helps them save money, time, and efforts.

  2. Apply the Machine Learning algorithms that you listed down: Use the real-world datasets to implement the algorithm. 
  3. Describe these Machine Learning algorithms: Write a short description of the algorithm. This will help you create a mini-encyclopedia of ML algorithms.
  4. Experiment on Machine Learning Algorithms: Play with datasets, variables, and functions to fully understand the algorithm. This will also help you in customizing the algorithm to suit your needs.

Machine Learning Algorithms

The most essential machine learning algorithm for beginners is the k nearest neighbor algorithm. Here is how the algorithm works:

  • A number ‘k’ is predefined that stores the number of training samples close to the new data point.
  • This new data point is assigned a label that is defined and assigned by the neighbors.
  • The K-nearest neighbor classifiers has a fixed number of neighbors
  • The density of the neighbor data points is measured by classifying the samples under a fixed radius. This method is known as radius based classification.
  • This algorithm following the non-generalizing ML method, remembers the training data.
  • Classification takes place after unknown sample’s neighbors take the vote.

If you just want to use the algorithms, you don’t need to have a thorough knowledge of the ML algorithms. However, if you are planning to use the concepts of machine learning to innovate or want to create a new algorithm, you need to have a basic knowledge of algorithms. To experiment with machine learning, you must have an understanding of how complex an algorithm is, how correct it is, the constraints involved and time taken by the algorithm, etc.

Below are the top different types of Machine Learning Algorithms:

  • Supervised Learning: In this method of learning, classified data from past is used to map the input variables to the output variables. Here is a list of algorithms that follow supervised learning method:
    • Linear Regression
    • Logistic Regression
    • Classification and Regression Trees (CART)
    • Naïve Bayes
    • K-Nearest Neighbor
  • Unsupervised Learning: In Unsupervised Learning method, only the input variables are provided and not the output ones. Possible clusters and associations are revealed after analyzing the underlying structures of the dataset. The following algorithms use this method:
    • Apriori
    • K-Means
    • Principle Component Analysis (PCA)
  • Ensemble Learning: This learning method involves using the result from each learner and combining them to get the better representation of the output. Here are a few algorithms that use Ensemble Learning:
    • Bagging
    • Boosting

The simplest Machine Learning algorithm for beginners is the k-nearest neighbor algorithm. Here are the reasons behind this:

  • The simplest supervised learning algorithm.
  • Used for regression and classification problems.
  • Uses similarity measure for classification.
  • Uses Labeled data for training.

To decide and choose the right Machine Learning algorithm to use for a specific problem statement, you need to follow these steps:

  • Understanding your data: Your data will decide what algorithm you will be selecting. Clean the data and use graphs and charts to visualize the data. The next step is to perform feature engineering to prepare the data for analysis.
  • Get the intuition about the task: Understand your task to determine the type of learning you will be using. There are 4 types of learning methods:
    • Supervised learning
    • Semi-supervised learning
    • Unsupervised learning
    • Reinforcement learning
  • Understand your constraints: For every project, there are a couple of restraints that you need to follow. Some of them are:
    • Data storage – It limits the amount of data you can use for training and testing the model.
    • Hardware – It is determined by the computational power of your machine.
    • Time – It determines the length of the training.

For practically designing and implementing a Machine Learning Algorithm using Python, you need to follow these steps:

  • Select the algorithm that you wish to implement: The first step is to select the algorithm that you will be implementing using Python. After this, you also need to select its classes, description, types, and special implementation.
  • Select the problem you wish to work upon: Select the problem that you want to work on. This includes implementing the algorithm and validating its efficiency.
  • Research the algorithm that you wish to implement: Go through different resources to get the implementation, description, and outlook of the algorithm. 
  • Undertake unit testing: This step involves developing and running tests on all the functions used in the algorithm.

Below are the most essential topics of Machine Learning one should study to master:

  • Decision Trees: This supervised learning algorithm is used for classification problems. It is simple and easy to interpret, visualize, and understand. Here are the benefits of using Decision trees:
    • Can be used for variable screening and feature selection
    • Is not affected by parameters’ non-linear relationship
    • Can analyze categorical and numerical data
    • Less effort required in preparing the data
  • Support Vector Machines: This method can be used for classification as well as regression problems. Thanks to its Kernel trick, feature mapping has become quite easy. It can be used for linear and non-linear data. 
  • Naive Bayes: It is a classification technique that is based on Bayes theorem, the only difference being that it considers that all the predictors are independent of each other. It quickly converges, requires less training data, and is highly scalable.
  • Random Forest algorithm: This supervised learning algorithm creates a forest of decision trees and randomizes the input so that no pattern is identified based on its order. It is used for classification as well as regression problems.

Machine Learning with Python Bristol, UK

Here is how you can get started using Python for mastering Machine Learning:

  1. The first step is to determine your end game and stay focused on it.
  2. Next comes the installation of Python SciPy kit and its packages.
  3. Learn about the functions used in python.
  4. Download a dataset. Load it, understand its structure and how it works. You can do this through data visualization and statistical summaries.
  5. Practice your skills on as many datasets as you can.
  6. Start building projects.

If you want to implement Machine Learning with Python, you need to have an understanding of the following libraries:

  • Scikit-learn: It is used for data mining, data analysis, and data science.
  • Numpy: It offers high performance when used with N-dimensional arrays.
  • Pandas: It is used for extraction and preparation of data through high-level data structures.
  • Matplotlib: It helps in data visualization by plotting 2D graphs.
  • TensorFlow: It is used for implementation of deep learning.

If you want to execute a successful Machine Learning project using Python, you need to follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Gathering data: The first step is to gather the relevant data for your project. Make sure that it is of good quality as it will impact the performance of your ML model.
  • Cleaning and preparing data: The gathered data will be in an unstructured form and inconsistent. You need to remove the unnecessary data and find the missing one. Then, using feature engineering, you need to convert the data into a format acceptable by the ML model. After this, you need to divide into two parts- training and testing data.
  • Visualize the data: Data visualization is required to help understand the data and relationships among the different variables. Also, it makes the data easy for the non-technical members of the team to understand.
  • Choosing the correct model: Next step is selecting the model and algorithm you will be using for analyzing your data.
  • Train and test: After this comes the training of the ML model using the training data. Once the training is finished, testing data is used to measure the accuracy of the model.
  • Adjust parameters: This step includes adjusting the parameters of the model to increase its accuracy.

If you are a beginner in programming and want to learn Python, here are 6 tips that you can use:

  1. Consistency is Key: Practice as much as you can. Practice coding for 30 minutes every day and then slowly increase the coding time.
  2. Write it out: Taking notes will help you retain things. It will also help you brush up on important topics while applying for a job or while working as a python developer.
  3. Go interactive!: You can use the interactive Python shell to practice strings, dictionaries, lists, etc. To do so, open a terminal, type ‘python’ and press enter.
  4. Assume the role of a Bug Bounty Hunter: As you start programming, you will come across several bugs. Solve them as they will improve your programming skills.
  5. Surround yourself with other people who are learning: Socializing with fellow Python developers will not only help you stay motivated to learn python but also will help you when you are stuck at a problem. Participate in meetups in Bristol to meet professionals.
  6. Opt for Pair programming: Pair programming is another efficient form of coding. In this, 2 developers are involved. The first one is the driver who writes the code. The second one is the navigator who guides the process and provides frameworks.

The following python libraries are essential for Machine Learning:

  • Scikit-learn: It is used for data analysis, data mining, and data science.
  • SciPy: This library is used in manipulation of concepts of engineering, mathematics, and statistics.
  • Numpy: This handles vector and matrix operations fast and efficiently.
  • Keras: This library can be used to deal with neural network.
  • TensorFlow: It uses multi-layered nodes setup, train, and deploy artificial neural networks quickly.
  • Pandas: This library extracts and prepares data with the help of high-level data structures
  • Matplotlib: It performs data visualization using 2D graphs.
  • Pytorch: It helps with Natural Language Processing.
