Machine Learning with Python – Introduction

Python is a popular platform used for research and development of production systems. It is a vast language with number of modules, packages and libraries that provides multiple ways of achieving a task.

Python and its libraries like NumPy, SciPy, Scikit-Learn, Matplotlib are used in data science and data analysis. They are also extensively used for creating scalable machine learning algorithms. Python implements popular machine learning techniques such as Classification, Regression, Recommendation, and Clustering.

Python offers ready-made framework for performing data mining tasks on large volumes of data effectively in lesser time. It includes several implementations achieved through algorithms such as linear regression, logistic regression, Naïve Bayes, k-means, K nearest neighbor, and Random Forest.
