Fundamentals of Machine Learning: A Beginners Guide


Have you ever wondered:

How internet ads are tracking you and what you have googled recently? How you get emails from Amazon about books or movies similar to what you have recently purchased or watched? How your Facebook page put people’s name beside their face in a photo? How your email detects the spams?How your credit card company finds an unusual transaction and notifies you?

Machine learning has got the answers to all of these questions. During this class you will learn the basics of machine learning and the high-level view of a few handful algorithms to solve lots of problems. Several examples will be explained and you will be able to prepare the dataset and choose an appropriate algorithm for your problem by the end of the class.


  • Understand the difference between classification and regression problems
  • Understand the concept of learning algorithms
  • Learn the steps to pre-process a dataset and prepare it for machine learning algorithms
  • Realize the difference between unsupervised and supervised learning algorithms
  • Free datasets, tools, and packages to implement and apply the machine learning algorithms to use and challenge the skills you learned from this class

I went to GA Seattle WDI (Web Development Immersive) course. It changed my life. Within 1 1/2 months of graduation, I was offered a great job at a company that's considered one of the top 5 to work for in the pacific NW. Starting next week I'll be a Software Engineer making more than twice what I made in my previous career, and I enjoy the work much more. I can't heap enough praise onto the General Assembly Web Development program. Like I said, it's changed my life in ways I didn't think possible.

GA WDI has been a great decision, not only was I able to learn such an extensive knowledge of multiple languages and frameworks to build web apps, but also being a part of an awesome ever growing family. I would highly recommend GA WDI to anyone.

I loved taking the FEWD class with General Assembly. My teachers were the head developers at Nordstrom and such cool guys! In just a 10 weeks I learned how to code HTML, CSS, and intermediate JavaScript. I wish we had spent more time with GitHub but apparently all future classes are using it for every homework assignment so that's good to hear. I would recommend GA to anyone serious about learning a difficult 21st century skill like web development or user experience or digital marketing. I got so much more out of it than I feel I would have with any online course.
