“Machine learning is something every developer at every company needs to know about, right now." - Kevin Scott, CTO, Microsoft.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Data Science are the hottest fields in technology right now. From healthcare and agriculture to manufacturing, energy, and retail, many companies across industries are leveraging these technologies to get ahead.

Machine learning is popular because there is an abundance of data to learn from today and luckily computation is abundant and cheap today.

Machine learning is the study of making decisions under uncertainty: given a training dataset, how should I act when I see something new - and trust me this technology is the new black.

But it is truly intimidating to explore these domains, especially if you are a newbie. Reason being there is no foolproof roadmap to master AI or be a skilled Data Scientist, the skills and tools needed are dynamic.

Demands of every company for their Machine Learning problems are different, and it is your duty as an AI/ML engineer or Data Scientist to quickly adapt and deliver them a solution. For this you need to have rock-solid experience in using Machine Learning technologies and Data Science tools.

Now what is the best way to master new skills? Follow tutorials? Umm yes, but only for a while. To master the skills you need to implement projects on your own.

Crio Projects Hub offers you some of the latest and trendiest Machine Learning projects that you can implement all by yourself!

So, if you are in search of the most in-demand and most-exciting career domains, gearing yourself up with Machine Learning skills together with Crio Projects Hub is a kickass move now.

2. Machine Learning Preprocessing CLI

Before applying Machine Learning on any dataset, you need to convert it in such a way that the algorithms can understand the dataset. These steps are preprocessing steps.

Data preprocessing is an integral step in Machine Learning as the quality of data and the useful information that can be derived from it directly affects the ability of your model to learn.

Data is said to be unclean if it is missing attribute, attribute values, contains noise, or outliers, and duplicate or wrong data.

Therefore, it is imperative that you preprocess your data before feeding it into your model. But data preprocessing is often considered time consuming and tedious by many Machine Learning developers.

And this project changes that for all developers.

In this project, you will be building a simple CLI tool that will save time by performing the data preprocessing in a faster, and convenient manner.

Skills to hone

By end of the project, you would have conquered the following concepts:

  • OOPS - Python like others is an object-oriented language. An object-oriented paradigm is to design the program using classes and objects. Using classes and objects while writing python scripts is very common and OOPs concepts helps in this process.
  • Pandas - Pandas are really powerful. They provide you with a huge set of important commands and features which are used to easily analyze your data. We can use Pandas to perform various tasks like filtering your data according to certain conditions, or segmenting and segregating the data according to preference, etc. It is one of the most widely used python libraries in the AI regime today.
  • Exception handling - It is a very popular technique for incorporating fault tolerance into software systems. It allows developers to structure the redundant code that is added to deal with the exceptional conditions that may occur, separating it from the code responsible for the normal operating flow.

This is a good learning project for all Python developers, especially those in the Machine Learning field, as they can easily relate to this tool’s importance. Not just that, it is a stellar project to boost your résumé!

Skills to hone

By end of the project, you would have a deeper understanding of analysing real data and gained practical knowledge of the following skills:

  • K means clustering - K means clustering is one of the most popular clustering algorithms and usually the first thing practitioners apply when solving clustering tasks to get an idea of the structure of the dataset. The goal of k-means is to group data points into distinct non-overlapping subgroups.
  • Data visualization - Data visualization careers tend to come with high salaries. Often, these specialists can work from home, and they also benefit from opportunities available across many different industries. In general, employers look for data visualization professionals who regularly increase their skills and knowledge in the field.
