About the DataHour:

A major challenge that every data scientist faces today is computational power. Companies want professionals who can extract predictions from the raw data cost-effectively. To get the predictions right, the data scientists have to treat the raw data well and extract necessary features for the model of their choice. Choosing the model and empowering it with the necessary optimization is one way to arrive at a more number of truly positive predictions is a very generic thought. 

Improving the accuracy of a model does not necessarily imply making the model more robust, and hence we bring back our attention to the features supplied to the model. Advanced Feature Engineering is a crucial thought process to improve the ability of your model to predict well. To think about feature engineering and to effectively perform an analysis, domain knowledge plays a key role. In this DataHour, you would learn practically about the thought process every data scientist should possess to make the machine learning models more robust.

Prerequisites:  This DataHour requires minimal exposure to a data science framework and basic terminology in data analytics.

Who is this DataHour for?

  • Students and professionals looking to expand their data science knowledge base.
  • Data science professionals who want to accelerate their career growth.
