Machine Learning/AI Series: Getting Started with Data Visualization

Class Code


Class Description

Most Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.

Before each sesson, Tech Training will provide a Zoom link for live online classes, along with any required class materials.


This session is intended to get you started with using tools to visualize data for data exploration prior to performing machine learning on the data.

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

This session is designed for anyone who wants to start exploring machine learning, and understand the tools and techniques involved in visualizing data before doing machine learning.

Use Matplotlib and Seaborn libraries to explore data.

Learn how to do the following:

  • Plot different types of charts -- pie, bar, histograms to explore the data.
  • Visualize correlations in the dataset.

Attendees must install Anaconda software ( 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, including Stanford Health Care, Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley, Stanford Medicine Partners, and Stanford Medicine Children's Health. A valid SUNet ID is needed to enroll in a class.
