Online Training Making Predictions with Data and Python
Python has become one of any data scientist’s favorite tools for doing Predictive Analytics. In this hands-on course, you will learn how to build predictive models with Python.During the course, we will talk about the most important theoretical concepts that are essential when building predictive models for real-world problems. The main tool used in this course is scikit -learn, which is recognized as a great tool: it has a great variety of models, many useful routines, and a consistent interface that makes it easy to use. All the topics are taught using practical examples and throughout the course, we build many models using real-world datasets.By the end of this course, you will learn the various techniques in making predictions about bankruptcy and identifying spam text messages and then use our knowledge to create a credit card using a linear model for classification along with logistic regression.About the authorAlvaro Fuentes is a Data Scientist with an M.S. in Quantitative Economics and a M.S. in Applied Mathematics with more than 10 years of experience in analytical roles. He worked in the Central Bank of Guatemala as an Economic Analyst, building models for economic and financial data. He founded Quant Company to provide consulting and training services in Data Science topics and has been a consultant for many projects in fields such as; Business, Education, Psychology and Mass Media. He also has taught many (online and in-site) courses to students from around the world in topics like Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, R programming and Python.Alvaro Fuentes is a big Python fan and has been working with Python for about 4 years and uses it routinely for analyzing data and producing predictions. He also has used it in a couple of software projects. He is also a big R fan, and doesn’t like the controversy between what is the best R or Python, he uses them both. He is also very interested in the Spark approach to Big Data, and likes the way it simplifies complicatedthings. He is not a software engineer or a developer but is generally interested in web technologies.He also has technical skills in R programming, Spark, SQL (PostgreSQL), MS Excel, machine learning, statistical analysis, econometrics, mathematical modeling.Predictive Analytics is a topic in which he has both professional and teaching experience. Having solved practical problems in his consulting practice using the Python tools for predictive analytics and the topics of predictive analytics are part of a more general course on Data Science with Python that he teaches online.

Investing in yourself through Learning
As a society, we spend hundreds of billions of dollars measuring the return on our financial assets. Yet, at the same time, we still haven’t found convincing ways of measuring the return on our investments in developing people.
And I get it: If my bank account pays me 1% a year, I can measure it to the penny. We’ve been collectively trained to expect neat and precise ROI calculations on everything, so when it’s applied to something as seemingly squishy as how effectively people are learning in the workplace, the natural inclination is to throw up our hands and say it can’t be done. But we need to figure this out. In a world where skills beat capital, the winners and losers of the next 30 years will be determined by their ability to attract and develop great talent.
Fortunately, corporate learning & development (L&D), like most business functions, is evolving quickly. We can embrace some level of ambiguity and have rigor when measuring the ROI of learning. It just might look a little different than an M.B.A. would expect to see in an Excel model.
