Class Description

Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, all 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 byte-sized session indented to get started with Classification Algorithm to classify structured data and make predictions.

Part of the Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence Class Series. Optional: Attend 4 out of the 5 sessions and work towards obtaining a Technology Training ML/AI Proficiency Certification. 

Have a basic understanding of Python language, Pandas library, and an understanding of how to use Jupyter Notebook. 

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

Learn about what classification means in machine learning and what some of the algorithms involved with classification, we will then perform hands-on lab to do the following:

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

- Because this is an abbreviated session, attendees MUST install Anaconda software ( and have a basic understanding of using Jupyter Notebook.


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