Welcome to the world of classification, one of the main types of modelling families in supervised Machine Learning! Through a series of engaging labs, you will delve into the entire classification process, starting from preprocessing your data to training and evaluating models. Additionally, you will learn how to effectively visualize and interpret the results and to handle data sets with unbalanced classes.
 
Classification serves as a critical foundation in data analysis, from categorizing data into their respective classes to training and fine-tuning generative LLMs that can generate new and meaningful content. In this course, different types of classification methods will be covered, showcasing which one is most suitable for a particular use case. 

By the end of this course, you should be able to:
  • Differentiate between the uses and applications of classification and classification ensembles.
  • Utilize logistic regression, KNN, and SVM models. 
  • Use decision tree and tree-ensemble models.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in other ensemble methods for classification.
  • Implement a variety of error metrics to compare the efficiency of various classification models to choose the one that suits your data the best.
  • Employ oversampling and undersampling techniques to handle unbalanced classes in a dataset.
