Machine Learning/AI Series: Classification Algorithms

Class Code

ITS-1943

Class Description

Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, most Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.

In advance of each session, Tech Training will provide you with a Zoom link to your class, along with any required class materials.


A session intended to get you started with Classification Algorithms to classify structured data and make predictions.

Prerequisite:
Have a basic understanding of the Python language, Pandas library, and be familiar with how to use Jupyter Notebook.

Audience:
This session is designed for anyone who is familiar with the basic steps involved in machine learning, and the tools involved in building machine learning models.

Objectives:
Learn about what classification means in machine learning and some of the algorithms involved with classification. We will then perform hands-on labs to do the following:

  • Use one of these classification algorithms to build a classification model
  • Look at different metrics involved in evaluating the performance of the model

Setup
Attendees must install Anaconda software (https://www.anaconda.com/) prior to the class, and have a basic understanding of using Jupyter Notebook.



University IT Technology Training classes are only available to Stanford University staff, faculty, students and Stanford Hospitals & Clinics employees. A valid SUNet ID is needed in order to enroll in a class.
