Why is Python the Best-Suited Programming Language for Machine Learning?
Machine Learning is the hottest trend in modern times. According to Forbes, Machine learning patents grew at a 34% rate between 2013 and 2017 and this is only set to increase in the future. And Python is the primary programming language used for much of the research and development in Machine Learning.
Example: Used car purchases In this example we are going to analyze used car prices with real data extracted from eBay classifieds. The following problem can occur: Real data contains wrong data Example: 100.000hp car Car with a price of 100 million euros This data would distort our model We have to remove it First […]

This enables us to use this line to predict values, for example. Imagine you want to move. You are currently looking for an apartment and do not know how much your new […]
Machine Learning, what ist this? Machine learning is a generic term for the “artificial” generation of knowledge from experience. In order for software to learn independently and also to find solutions, people have to act in advance. You must provide the systems with the data and algorithms necessary for machine learning. First of all, however, […]
Anaconda installation and the necessary tools In this example we are gong to install Anaconda, please click here. Anaconda is a free and open-source distribution of the in our example Python programming languages for scientific computing (data science, machine learning applications, large-scale data processing, etc.), that aims to simplify package management and deployment. The Anaconda distribution includes data-science packages suitable for Windows, Linux, and MacOS. Select whether […]
