Additional FAQs on Machine Learning with Python Training in Kolkata

Learn Machine Learning in Kolkata, India

The primary objective of Machine Learning is to enable computer systems to perform tasks like locating data, analyzing them and learning from the data without any form of external help or intervention. From the moment observations of data become available in the form of direct experiences or examples, the process of Machine Learning starts. The system looks at the provided data, tries to find patterns in them and then extrapolates these observed patterns in order to make better business decisions. It takes into account all the information and datasets available to the program or system to make its decision.

There are several methods of Machine Learning. Broadly they can be categorized in to the following two categories-

  • Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms: These algorithms depend on old data already existing in the system to interpret the new data provided to them. This is done with the use of labeled examples to predict the events of the future.
    • A known dataset is provided to the system from which it trains and learns.
    • A learning algorithm derived from the training is produced in the form of inferred function which is then used to make predictions from new data.
    • These inferred functions then provide us with results from new data after considerable training and learning.
  • Unsupervised Machine Learning Algorithm: These algorithms are used when the data required for learning by the system is either not labeled or have not been classified. 
    • Unsupervised learning systems have the ability to infer functions from unlabeled data to find hidden patterns. 
    • While such systems are unable to find the correct results, it can read available data and draw inferences from given datasets. This helps in finding hidden patterns and rules from the unlabeled data.

According to Angellist, there are over 250+ startups in Kolkata, such as TaxMantra, Sweethandi, Santa Delivers, Zeroinfy, etc. It is also home to several leading companies, such as Oracle, Sforce, Wipro, TCS, Cognizant, etc. In 2018, Infosys started its software development centre in Kolkata investing around Rs 100 crore in the first phase.

    Below are the steps to execute an ML project with Python:

    1. Gather Data: The basic and the most important step is the gathering of data that is appropriate for a particular project. The quality and quantity of data will determine the performance of your ML model.
    2. Cleaning and preparing data: The data that is gathered is in raw form; which means that this data needs to be processed or cleaned by correcting the missing data and preparing it by specific feature engineering. Finally, divide it into 2 parts: training data and testing data.
    3. Visualize the data: Usually this is the final step, it is done to present the prepared data and find the correlations between the variables. 
    4. Choosing the correct model: The kind of ML model that will be ideal for harvesting the given data is important as it helps determine the performance of the algorithm.
    5. Training and testing: After having decided on the model through which the processed data will be passed, the previous division of data is ready to be used. The training data set is passed through the model to train it with the new set of data, then the accuracy of the model is checked by passing the test data.
    6. Adjust parameters: After determining the accuracy of the model, the parameters are fine tuned. One of the examples of that is changing the number of neurons in the neural networks.

    Algorithms are an integral part of Machine Learning. Here’s how you can effectively learn them:

    1. Make a list of all ML algorithms: Every algorithm is useful and unique in its own way. Thus, it is important to list the algorithms you want to learn in the beginning of your Machine Learning journey. Writing down the general category under which an algorithm falls provides you with an idea of the different classes and types of algorithms available and prepares you for what lies ahead.
    2. Implement the Machine Learning algorithms you listed: Algorithms do not exist in isolation from the data. While having an in-depth idea of the theory behind any algorithm is expected, unless you can successfully implement the algorithms in processing data, your skill set remains only half full. Practicing the algorithms with different types of data provides you with the confidence to work in any given situation. Start building up an intuition for the various Machine Learning algorithms such as Support Vector Machines, decision trees etc. 
    3. Describe the Machine Learning algorithms: Once you are well accustomed to the various algorithms, the next step is to explore what you have already learnt. Being able to describe and analyze every algorithm will increase your knowledge of algorithms. Continue adding more information to these descriptions as you go.
    4. Use the Machine Learning algorithms: By implementing the algorithm yourself, you will be able to understand the micro decisions involved in the implementation of Machine Learning concepts. The implementation of algorithms will help you get a feeling about the workings of an algorithm as well as understand the mathematical extensions and descriptions of the algorithm. 
    5. Experiment on Machine Learning algorithms: Once you have a strong grasp of the concepts of Machine Learning algorithms, it is time to experiment with them. Understanding the different parameters that are used during the working on an algorithm prepares you to customize the algorithms to suit your needs in the future.

    Machine Learning Algorithms

    The K Nearest Neighbours (KNN) algorithm is a simplistic Machine Learning algorithm. The aim of KNN is to predict outcome of new data instance. It trains to find either the K-nearest instance of the new data instance or the K number of instances that are most similar to the new instance. The prediction or output of one of two things;

    • The mode or the most frequent class in a classification problem
    • The means of the outcomes, in a regression problem

    The benefits of KNN is the ease of use and simplicity. Though it uses a lot of memory to store the large dataset, it calculates only when prediction is needed. 

    Your intention and future goals with Machine Learning determines the necessity of learning algorithms-

    • If you simply want to use the existing Machine Learning algorithms without having any knowledge of classic algorithms you can do so. There are various online courses on Machine Learning that do not teach algorithms with Machine Learning tools.
    • But if you want to bring innovations in the field of Machine Learning then the basic knowledge and workings of algorithms will be a prerequisite for you. Since being an innovator it is your responsibility to find new and improved Machine Learning analyzing tools, you will need to have the knowledge of new algorithms as well as devise new algorithms of our own. This requires you to have a good grasp of the different aspects of algorithms and using that knowledge to devise your own.

    Machine Learning algorithms are basically of three types:

    • Supervised Learning: Linear Regression, Logistic Regression, Classification and Regression Trees (CART), Naïve Bayes, K-Nearest Neighbours
    • Unsupervised Learning: Apriori, K-Means, Principal Component Analysis (PCA)
    • Ensemble Learning: Bagging, Boosting

    The simplest algorithm in Machine Learning enables one to solve the simplest ML problems. According to this criteria the algorithm has to be:

    • Easy to comprehend.
    • Easy to use and recognizing the underlying patterns.
    • Simple algorithms take less time and resources to train and test data as compared to high-level algorithm.

    K-nearest neighbor algorithm is the most simplest and widely used ML algorithms for solving basic but important real life problems. The reason for that is-

    • It is a classification algorithm though it can be used for regression as well.
    • It classifies based on the similarity measure and is non-parametric.
    • Data set used for the training phase is labeled data (supervised learning) and the aim of the algorithm becomes predicting a class for an object based on its k nearest surroundings where k defines the number of neighbors.
    • Some practical and real-life examples where KNN is used are:
      • When searching in documents containing similar topics.
      • Used to detect patterns in credit card usage.
      • Vehicular number plate recognition.

    Machine Learning is the most popular and heavily used system. Thus it has a lot of tools, algorithms and models to choose from. Having an understanding of selecting the right algorithm for your problem will determine the final quality of your project.

    • Understanding your data: Even before deciding on the appropriate algorithm, one needs to understand the data in front of him/her. Understanding the data well is important to decide which algorithm will be ideal. 
    • Get the intuition about your task: There are instances when the ultimate aim of a task is lost in the process and that is why ML is so important to solve the problem. After realizing the need of a process, you can decide the kind of learning required to complete the task at hand. There are 4 types of learning in general.
      • Supervised learning
      • Unsupervised learning
      • Semi-supervised learning
      • Reinforcement learning
    • Understand your constraints: A lot of times we overestimate ourselves and do not apply constraints to our planning and find the best tools and algorithms out there. This is not the right approach. Most of the best models and algorithms are for high end machines which require high level storage. Understanding hardware and software constraints thus become important. 

    The more you practice and implement Machine Learning algorithms the more efficient and faster will your solutions become. The process of implementation of ML algorithms are as follows:

    1. Selecting a programming language: Decide on the type of programming language you will use for your data. The programming language will depend on your libraries and APIs that you are going to use for your implementation.
    2. Selecting algorithm to be used for implementation: Next step is to find the ideal algorithm that you are going to implement. Having a clear idea of all the steps and specifics will determine how smoothly your implementation will go. 
    3. Selecting the problem you will be working on: Next is to select the canonical problem set that you would like to use to test and validate the efficiency and correctness of your algorithm implementation.
    4. Thorough research on the algorithm you wish to implement: Researching different, books, articles, blogs and so on about the algorithm you are about to implement will give you a complete idea about the uses and methodologies of the algorithm. This prepares you against possible roadblocks and mistakes that might happen during the process.
    5. Undertake unit testing: Develop and run unit tests for each and every function of your algorithm. This also enables and forces you to understand the expectations as well as the purpose of each unit of code of your algorithm.

    The following are some essential topics of Machine Learning that every learner should be acquainted with:

    • Decision Trees: Used for classification problems, a Decision tree is a type of a supervised learning algorithm. 
    • Support Vector Machines: It is a type of classification methodology that provides a higher degree of accuracy in classification problems. 
    • Naive Bayes: It is based on Bayes' theorem and is a classification technique. 
    • Random Forest algorithm: The Random Forest is basically a collection of randomized decision trees that are trained with the bagging method.
