DIY Machine Learning projects with Python


“I hear, I know. I see I remember. I do, I understand” this famous quote was said by the great Chinese philosopher and politician, Confucian. Don’t you think this saying is very apt for learning things these days! In order to learn about technology and master any application of the field of technology like machine learning, one should be able to do things by himself. Just merely seeing things from YouTube or hearing news doesn’t help much. Doing things by yourself is the most important aspect of learning and that’s exactly what DIY projects are. DIY stands for ‘DO IT YOURSELF’, which is the go-to moto we are talking about for everybody to achieve some great things in life.

What is machine learning?

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence which is a scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that can be used by a computer to perform a specific task with the help of patterns and inferences without using a large number of complicated instructions.

It provides the systems with the ability to learn and improvise all by itself without the heavy usage of programming. It focusses much on the fact that computers can collect data and analyse it and use it to learn everything by itself.

Is Python good for machine learning?

So, since we got to know what exactly machine learning is, we go to the next important aspect of it. Programming! Programming is an important component of any project because the entire output depends on the way we write and execute our program and it is by the help of these programs by which they can help systems complete their task.

There are many programming languages like C, C++, PYTHON, JAVA, etc…. But among all, python is the most recommended one because of the following reasons:

  • Due to its learning ease and support availability
  • Due to its high speed & productivity, although slower than languages like C & C++.
  • User-friendly for studies in data structures and some aspects of data science.
  • Popular use in machine learning
  • Presence of third-party modules
  • Extensive support libraries
  • Open source and community development of other software like ROS (robot operating systems).

It is one of the most popular languages and it is perfectly suitable for machine learning because it is easy to learn, due to its very good data handling capacity, due to its ability to connect to various third-party apps and it being an open-source language is one of the most influential parts of its selection as a preferred programming language in machine learning.

Finally, machine learning with python certificate provides the learners with the best combinations and theory and practical based applications with relevant case studies, making it an excellent choice for many tech lovers.

Is machine learning hard?

Well then, having known about machine learning, one might wonder,

how hard is machine learning? Where to start and most importantly how should I start it?

The answer is, by doing projects! It is the best way to gain knowledge in the field of machine learning, as discussed above, doing things helps you understand stuff.

So, if anyone asks us how hard is it to learn machine learning on the scale of 1 to 10, then what would you say?

Well, there is no definite answer to such a question, because what may be easy for one might be difficult for another person, not everyone has the same skill level and interests and priorities vary from one individual to another. So, it purely depends on the passion and interest of the person. Also, if there is no pain, then there is no gain! Don’t you’ll agree with it?

For machine learning, you need to have certain skills in your arsenal like

  • The knowledge of programming languages like C, JAVA, PYTHON etc.
  • You’ve needed to be thorough in data science courses like Data structures, database systems, statistics and, probability so that it makes life easier for you later on while learning ML.
  • You need to have a decent knowledge of mathematical concepts like multivariable calculus and linear algebra as well.
  • In-depth knowledge of the computer science syllabus which you’ve been coming across in your entire duration of B-TECH or any other course-related to computers.
  • Also, joining machine learning classes for beginners and getting trained would be a wise choice.
  • Taking part in machine learning competitions would also be very useful as it helps you to think out of the box and implement your theoretical knowledge and gain hands-on experience which also makes you more proficient.

Finally, with such a skillset combined with your passion and desire, machine learning shouldn’t be tough!
