Understand, explore, and effectively present data using the powerful data visualization techniques of Python

Key Features

  • Use the power of Pandas and Matplotlib to easily solve data mining issues
  • Understand the basics of statistics to build powerful predictive data models
  • Grasp data mining concepts with helpful use-cases and examples

Book Description

Data mining, or parsing the data to extract useful insights, is a niche skill that can transform your career as a data scientist Python is a flexible programming language that is equipped with a strong suite of libraries and toolkits, and gives you the perfect platform to sift through your data and mine the insights you seek. This Learning Path is designed to familiarize you with the Python libraries and the underlying statistics that you need to get comfortable with data mining.

You will learn how to use Pandas, Python's popular library to analyze different kinds of data, and leverage the power of Matplotlib to generate appealing and impressive visualizations for the insights you have derived. You will also explore different machine learning techniques and statistics that enable you to build powerful predictive models.

By the end of this Learning Path, you will have the perfect foundation to take your data mining skills to the next level and set yourself on the path to become a sought-after data science professional.

This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:

  • Statistics for Machine Learning by Pratap Dangeti
