Module presentation

In this module, we are going to see some feature selection techniques and SMOTE, both in theory and in practice using Python programming language.

What will I learn with this module?

Completing this module you will learn oversampling and feature selection and how to apply them in Python using sklearn library.

The topics we are going to coverare:

  • Filter-based feature selection for regression
  • Filter-based feature selection for classification
  • Oversampling using SMOTE

Who is this module for?

This module has been made for:

  • aspiring, junior and senior data scientists
  • machine learning engineers
  • data analysts
  • researchers
  • students
  • everybody who is interested in machine learning and data science


In order to benefit from the module, it's useful to have this previous knowledge:

  • Python programming language
  • Numpy library
  • Pandas library

What will I get once I enroll in the module?

After you buy the module, you'll have complete access to the video lessons of this course and you'll be able to start discussions with the teacher and the other students using the comment section under every lesson.
