Loan Default Prediction with Machine Learning Course Overview

Machine Learning is about making predictions using data. In this course, you’ll learn to use basic Machine Learning skills to predict which customers are likely to default on their loans.

Once your model classifies each loan, you’ll learn to visualize your predictions to see how well the model performed.

Predicting defaults and creditworthiness is hugely valuable to risk management and pricing decisions.

We will cover the entire Machine Learning process in Python, reinforcing concepts from Python fundamentals. You’ll learn how to create predictive classification models, fine-tune and test your process, and how to interpret the results.

Machine Learning is a hot topic in the world of data, particularly data science. At a basic level, Machine Learning is not as complex as it may sound. If you’ve ever done linear regression, you may be surprised to learn that you’ve already taken steps toward this exciting world.

Join Andrew for a comprehensive step-by-step walkthrough of the Machine Learning process.
