About the DataHour:

Understanding the significance of Parameter Tuning is a must for every ML Engineer while selecting the right machine learning model and improving the performance of the model. Make sure that those parameters selection are influenced and learnt from the data, and it needs to be accessed before the model gets into the train. Ultimately the performance of the machine learning model improves with a more acceptable choice of hyperparameter tuning and selection techniques.

In this DataHour, Shanthababu will cover the following topics:

  1. Differentiating the Model and Hyperparameter - What are Hyperparameters? How to differ from a Model Parameter?
  2. Importance of Hyperparameter
  3. Steps to Perform Hyperparameter Tuning.
  4. Influencing on Models with respect to various aspects.
  5. Hyperparameter Optimization Techniques and simple use cases.

Prerequisites: Enthusiasm of learning Data Science,  Python Programming, Machine Learning Life cycle, Basic Algorithms understanding and an Idea about Model performance

Who is this DataHour for?

  • Students & Freshers who want to build a career in the Data-tech domain.
  • Working professionals who want to transition to the Data-tech domain.
  • Data science professionals who want to accelerate their career growth
