The focus of this week's skilltest is mainly on machine learning/predictive modelling in terms of the techniques that are commonly used in the industry to solve business problems at hand with ease and efficiency.

The topics that you will be judged on are:

  • Solving supervised learning problems with Decision Trees
  • Solving unsupervised learning problems with KMeans

You can avail a maximum of 150 AV points.

This week's skilltest is a cornerstone of your learnings until now. If you pass this, it essentially means that you are (almost) ready to solve real world problems.

The skilltest is based on the course 'Introduction to Data Science' in regards to Student DataFest 2018. Please go through the course before attempting the skilltests, as you will not be able to retake the skilltest once started.
