Machine Learning Using Python

Are you keen to know more? Come and join us to understand how machine learning and artificial intelligence disciplinaries have adapted Python programming.

The Equation Between Machine Learning and Python

These days, buzzwords like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Neural Networks have taken the IT industry by storm.

Let’s see their definition (source: Wikipedia):

Artificial Intelligence(AI) - the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

Machine learning(ML) – is a branch of  AI; It is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform above tasks without using explicit instructions, relying on patterns and inference instead.

Deep Learning - (also known as deep structured learning or hierarchical learning) is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on artificial neural networks. Learning can be supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised.

Artificial neural networks (ANN) - (connectionist systems) are computing systems that are inspired by, but not identical to, biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. Such systems "learn" to perform tasks by considering examples, generally without being programmed with task-specific rules.

Businesses have a vast amount of data that they need to analyze for achieving business goals. ML is all about creating algorithms and systems to analyze such data. Some of these common algorithms include linear progression, logistic progression, k-means clustering, etc.

Python Anaconda supported by all commonly used operating systems like Windows, Linux, MAC provides scikit-learn, matplotlib, pandas, and NumPy library to implement machine learning algorithms. These rich features make Python as one of the most common backbones of machine learning.

The combination of simplicity, shorter development time, and consistent syntax makes Python a juggernaut among Machine Learning experts.


Why Learn Python Machine Learning?

Currently, machine learning is one of the most exciting and promising intellectual fields with its applications ranging from e-commerce to healthcare.

Python offers all the skillsets that are required for machine learning or AI projects – stability, flexibility and a large number of tools.

Few machine learning trends by 2020 are:

A)New Approaches to Cybersecurity

Machine learning deployed by cybersecurity firms can increase the level of security.

B)Robotic Process Automation Will Rule the World

Finance, health, and manufacturing industries are using machine learning to deploy robotic process automation where intelligent drones and robots make the task easier.

C)Improved IT Operations

Machine learning helps IT operations teams to capture, refine data, to obtain the root cause of problems and create intelligent business insights to make the companies successful.

D)Transparency in Decision-Making

Machine learning with the help of predictive models brings transparency in decision-making in the field of retail, medicine, healthcare, and logistics.

Machine learning is a boon to the world. As more and more organizations are depending on it, demand for certified and skilled professionals also goes up. The average salary of a machine learning engineer with Python skills is ₹719,646 in India and $111,490 in the USA(source:

So, why wait? Join the best training institute to get hands-on experience in Machine Learning using Python.

From our Python Machine Learning tutorial, you will understand two main components:

a) you will be learning about the purpose and applications of Machine Learning.

b) you will gain an overview of its topics such as supervised vs unsupervised learning, model evaluation, and algorithms - linear regression, K Nearest Neighbors, decision trees, random forest, Support Vector Machines (SVM), flat clustering, hierarchical clustering, Time Series, Naïve Bayes, Q-Learning and neural networks.

We will also discuss how these algorithms are logically meant to work, diving into the inner workings of each of these algorithms, and apply these algorithms in coding using real-world data sets along with Python libraries.

Less Amount of Code

Algorithms are essentials of machine learning. Python makes it simpler for developers as it comes with the potential of implementing the same logic with as little code as required in other OOP languages. Python’s integrated approach lets developers check code methodology and to be more productive from development to deployment and maintenance.

Platform Independence

Many companies use their own machines containing powerful GPUs to train their machine learning models. Python being platform-independent helps in shifting data cost-effectively from one machine to another without making changes to the actual code.


Wide Range of Applications

ML is expanding its applications to real-world scenarios like emotion analysis, error detection, weather forecasting, stock market analysis, speech recognition, fraud detection, customer segmentation.



Developers can select programming styles for several types of problems, can combine Python with other languages to get the desired results, and do not require recompiling source code.


Great Support

Python is an open-source, multi-purpose language and its development is continuously supported by a great community. It offers a great number of resources like modules, packages, toolkits, and libraries that enable machine learning engineers to constantly improve the language.
