Course presentation

In this course, we are going to focus on supervised machine learning and how to apply it using Python programming language. We're going to explore the most common ML models, feature importance calculation, performance metrics, hyperparameter tuning and more.

What is supervised machine learning?

Supervised Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence that makes it possible to create predictive models that are able to learn from data and make predictions starting from what they learned. It is able to find the information that hides behind data and to use it for better understanding some business phenomena that would otherwise remain unknown.

How is supervised machine learning used?

There are several practical applications of supervised ML that span across several industries.

For example:

  • Product recommendation
  • Fraud detection
  • Risk management
  • Insurance risk
  • Predictive maintenance

Is supervised machine learning a good skill to have?

Definitely yes. According to the U.S. BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS report of May 2019, the average annual salary for a Data Scientist in the US is $100,560. The modern IT world is increasing its demand for people that can handle data using ML techniques in order to make accurate predictions of business phenomena. These people are called Data Scientists.

What will I learn with this course?

Completing this course you will learn the basic principles of Supervised Machine Learning and its applications in Python, the most common models for regression and classification tasks, the most common performance metrics used for measuring the accuracy of the predictions, the most important techniques to calculate feature importance and how to use it for dimensionality reduction. You will also learn the importance of cross-validation techniques and hyperparameter tuning. Every lesson is made by a brief, theoretical introduction followed by a practical example in Python programming language using Jupyter notebooks.

After you buy the course, 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.

Your Instructor


My name is Gianluca Malato, I'm Italian and have a Master's Degree cum laude in Theoretical Physics of disordered systems at "La Sapienza" University of Rome.

I'm a Data Scientist who has been working for years in the banking and insurance sector. I have extensive experience in software programming and project management and I have been dealing with data analysis and machine learning in the corporate environment for several years.

I am also skilled in data analysis (e.g. relational databases and SQL language), numerical algorithms (e.g. ODE integration, optimization algorithtms) and simulation (e.g. Monte Carlo techniques).

I've written many articles about Machine Learning, R and Python and I've been a Top Writer on Medium.com in Artificial Intelligence category.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the course have a start and a finish date?

No. Once you enroll, you can follow the recorded video lessons when you want.


How can I pay for the course?

You can pay with a credit card using Teachable's payment gateway.


How can I follow the lessons?

Once you pay for your enrollment, you can access the recorded video lessons of the course when you want from your computer using this website. These videos are given in streaming, so you'll need to connect to this website and have an Internet connection in order to watch them. After you create your account and log in, you can use the My Courses link in top of every page to see all the courses you have enrolled in.


I don't know anything about machine learning. Can I access the course?

Sure. As soon as you can ensure the prerequisites, you can follow this course.


Why this course is different from the other ML courses on the web?

Because in this course we're going to see, practically, how to apply Supervised Machine Learning. There is still a theory part in every lesson because you need to know what you are doing, but the course focuses on the practical approach to ML. This kind of approach can help a data scientist apply, in a real-life job, the concepts taught in this course and this is a value we really believe in.


What language will be used?

During this course, the spoken and written language is English.


I can't afford the whole price. What can I do?

You can choose the 6-month payment plan. Each month, a transaction is automatically charged to you for a total of 6 monthly transactions. You can access the course immediately and pay during the next months according to the schedule. Please note that once started, the payment schedule cannot be interrupted until the last transaction. Once selected, the payment method (Paypal, credit card) cannot be changed. If a transaction fails, you'll be unenrolled from the course. More details here.


What if I'm not satisfied?

If you are not satisfied with the course, we apply a 30-day refund policy. Just contact us within 30 days from the date of purchase to get a full refund.
