Machine learning topics and modules

Just to clarify upfront: Any topic can be explored in depth at your request. Your needs come first. You decide what your team needs. We create the concept. If your team just wants an overview, then you can select a wide range of topics. However, it will likely be challenging for the team to implement what they have learned in practice afterwards.

So, if you want to work seriously and professionally with Python, it's better, based on our experience, to select fewer topics which we then discuss in depth during the training and conduct a sufficient number of practical workshops. Here, indeed, "less is more". In a consultation, we can best jointly identify which topics will be most beneficial for your team and your projects.

We don't preach theory, we solve problems! Get the maximum knowledge for your team. Compile the topics according to your previous knowledge and needs, depending on the project. Because individual learning brings the desired success!

Machine learning techniques

In very simplified terms, classical techniques are well suited for tabular or structured data, while deep learning techniques are better suited for problems that process image, text, or speech data.

With Deep Learning techniques it is also state of the art not to develop the models from scratch but to use so-called pre-trained models. For most use cases we recommend to focus the course on the use of pre-trained models and not on the creation of own models.

Basics and traditional techniques

If your team has no prior experience with machine learning techniques, it is recommended that you discuss some of the basics and traditional techniques using relatively simple examples so that you have a solid foundation for working on more complex problems later.

  • Types of Machine Learning
  • The machine learning process (for supervised learning).
  • Linear and logistic regression
  • Preparation of data
  • Visualization of data
  • Decision trees, random forests, gradient boosted trees
  • Designing a training process
  • Finding errors (what to do if the training does not converge)
  • Unsupervised Learning

Deep Learning Techniques

With the following topics, your team can take their knowledge of building deep learning models to the next level:

  • Fundamentals of Deep Learning and Neural Networks.
  • The Multilayer Perceptron (Fully Connected Net)
  • Convolutional Networks
  • Recurrent Networks (LSTM, GRU).
  • Improvement of network architectures
  • (skip connections, dropout, regularization,...)
  • Attention mechanisms
  • The Transformer Architecture

Pretrained models

For many practical problems, working with pre-trained models lends itself to:

  • Pretrained models for image processing.
  • Pre-trained models for natural language processing (NLP).
  • Hugging Face Hub, Transformers, and Datasets.
  • The Haystack Framework for Search Engines

Deep Learning Packages

The following list contains only a selection of the numerous Python libraries that you can use to solve machine learning problems. Typically, the selection of libraries discussed in a training session is based on the desired application areas and techniques, but it is of course also possible to conduct a training session on a specific Python library that your team wants to delve deeper into.

  • Basic libraries:
  • Mathematics/linear algebra: NumPy
  • Tabular Data: Pandas
  • Visualization: Matplotlib, Seaborn
  • SciPy (for statistics and scientific computing)
  • Statsmodels (for statistics and forecasting)
  • Scikit-Learn (for data preparation and machine learning)
  • XGBoost: (for machine learning with gradient boosted trees)
  • LightGBM: (similar to XGBoost, but more efficient for some applications)
  • Deep Learning/GPU Computing
  • TensorFlow
  • PyTorch
  • Transformers
  • Datasets
  • Haystack
  • Pmdarima
  • Streamlit for Dashboards

Working effectively as a team

These modules cover techniques that help make teamwork more productive and improve the quality of the resulting software.

The Working effectively as a team module includes the following focus areas:

  • Version control (Git)
  • Docker
  • Continuous Integration (CI)
  • Workflows: Issue Tracking, Pull/Merge Requests
  • Example: working with a local GitLab instance in Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Elasticsearch/Kibana (OpenSearch/Dashboards)

Questions and answers about Machine Learning training

What course formats are available?

3-day on-site course at the Coding Academy

The course takes place in our modern and top-equipped training rooms. We provide each participant with a modern laptop during the training. Drinks are provided by the Coding Academy. You will receive access to the materials no later than the first day of the course.

3-day in-house training on-site at your location

Our trainers are also happy to come to you if this is expressly desired by you and you have a good training room and the necessary infrastructure for the training.

3-day online course

The course takes place online. All you need is a computer with internet access; however, for some courses, it may be necessary to install the software used; this is indicated in the description of the respective course. You will receive access to the materials no later than the first day of the course.

4-Week Training Program

A new and innovative learning concept. You can find more information about the 4-Week Training Programm here.

What is the formal process (ordering, training, invoice)?

  • If you are interested in a training course, it is best to contact us so that we can clarify the technical topics.
  • If you would like to take the training course with us, we will be happy to send you a non-binding offer.
  • If the offer suits you, please accept it (a short confirmation by email is sufficient).
  • If you need an order confirmation, we will be happy to send it to you.
  • Afterwards, we will find a date that fits well for your team.
  • For online training, we will provide you with the link: MS-Teams, BBBServer, or Zoom.
  • A few days after the training, you will receive an invoice with a payment term of two weeks.
  • Upon active participation in the training, participants will receive their certificates by email afterwards.

Do graduates of the Machine Learning courses receive a certificate?

Of course, as a participant in a Machine Learning course, you will receive a certificate. The prerequisite for this is full participation in all course units and programming tasks, and the successful programming of a small final project. However, after an intensive Machine Learning course, this will certainly bring you more joy than stress.
