Book Description

Machine learning is increasingly spreading in the modern data-driven world. It is used extensively across many fields such as search engines, robotics, self-driving cars, and more. Machine learning is transforming the way we understand and interact with the world around us.

In the first module, Python Machine Learning Cookbook, you will learn how to perform various machine learning tasks using a wide variety of machine learning algorithms to solve real-world problems and use Python to implement these algorithms.

The second module, Advanced Machine Learning with Python, is designed to take you on a guided tour of the most relevant and powerful machine learning techniques and you’ll acquire a broad set of powerful skills in the area of feature selection and feature engineering.

The third module in this learning path, Large Scale Machine Learning with Python, dives into scalable machine learning and the three forms of scalability. It covers the most effective machine learning techniques on a map reduce framework in Hadoop and Spark in Python.

This Learning Path will teach you Python machine learning for the real world. The machine learning techniques covered in this Learning Path are at the forefront of commercial practice.

This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package. It includes content from the following Packt products:



  1. Python Machine Learning Cookbook by Prateek Joshi
  2. Advanced Machine Learning with Python by John Hearty
  3. Large Scale Machine Learning with Python by Bastiaan Sjardin, Alberto Boschetti, Luca Massaron


What you will learn



  • Use predictive modeling and apply it to real-world problems
  • Understand how to perform market segmentation using unsupervised learning
  • Apply your new-found skills to solve real problems, through clearly-explained code for every technique and test
  • Compete with top data scientists by gaining a practical and theoretical understanding of cutting-edge deep learning algorithms
  • Increase predictive accuracy with deep learning and scalable data-handling techniques

About the Author

Prateek Joshi is the founder of Plutoshift and a published author of 9 books on Artificial Intelligence. He has been featured on Forbes 30 Under 30, NBC, Bloomberg, CNBC, TechCrunch, and The Business Journals. He has been an invited speaker at conferences such as TEDx, Global Big Data Conference, Machine Learning Developers Conference, and Silicon Valley Deep Learning. Apart from Artificial Intelligence, some of the topics that excite him are number theory, cryptography, and quantum computing. His greater goal is to make Artificial Intelligence accessible to everyone so that it can impact billions of people around the world.

Luca Massaron is a data scientist who specializes in organizing and interpreting big data and transforming it into smart data. He is a Google Developer Expert (GDE) in machine learning.

John Hearty is a consultant in digital industries with substantial expertise in data science and infrastructure engineering. Having started out in mobile gaming, he was drawn to the challenge of AAA console analytics.
Keen to start putting advanced machine learning techniques into practice, he signed on with Microsoft to develop player modeling capabilities and big data infrastructure at an Xbox studio. His team made significant strides in engineering and data science that were replicated across Microsoft Studios. Some of the more rewarding initiatives he led included player skill modeling in asymmetrical games, and the creation of player segmentation models for individualized game experiences.
Eventually, John struck out on his own as a consultant offering comprehensive infrastructure and analytics solutions for international client teams seeking new insights or data-driven capabilities. His favorite current engagement involves creating predictive models and quantifying the importance of user connections for a popular social network.
After years spent working with data, John is largely unable to stop asking questions. In his own time, he routinely builds machine learning solutions in Python to fulfil a broad set of personal interests. These include a novel variant on the StyleNet computational creativity algorithm and solutions for algo-trading and geolocation-based recommendation. He currently lives in the UK.
