About the Webinar:

“Coming up with features is difficult, time-consuming, requires expert knowledge. ‘Applied machine learning’ is basically feature engineering” – Prof. Andrew Ng

Feature Engineering is often one of the overlooked aspects of the Data Science lifecycle but is probably one of the most critical steps which can make or break a Data Science project.

In this hands-on live session, we will be working through a sales forecasting problem step-by-step with a key focus on problem identification, data wrangling, feature engineering & EDA, and finally modeling using some structured frameworks and methodologies. Open-source libraries in Python will be used in combination with Google Colab so we spend minimal time in setup and focus on the core session itself. 

Pre-requisites: Having a basic knowledge of supervised machine learning, Python and Google Colab

Who is this Webinar for?

  • Students & Freshers who want to build a career in Data Science
  • Working professionals who want to transition to a data science career
  • Data science professionals who want to accelerate their career growth
