About this course
The course aims to give insights in fundamental concepts of machine learning for predictive analytics to provide actionable, i.e., better and more informed decisions in, forecasting. It covers the key concepts to extract useful information and knowledge from data sets to construct predictive modeling.
Introduction: overview of Predictive data analytics and Machine learning for predictive analytics.
Data exploration and visualization: presents case studies from industrial application domains and discusses key technical issues related to how we can gain insights enabling to see trends and patterns in industrial data.
Predictive modeling: consists of issues in construction of predictive modeling, i.e., model data and determine Machine learning algorithms for predicative analytics and techniques for model evaluation.
