Data Science: Decision Trees, Boosting and Ensembles

I'm Satyam ! I'm a Data Scientist at Gaana and an alumnus of BITS Pilani. This course is designed based on my experience in learning and working on Decision Trees and applying boosting and ensemble techniques.
I will start with basic concepts of decision trees and work with you on some real-world assignments. In the end, we’ll do some mock interviews to strengthen your ability to communicate what you’ve learnt.

  • 15 live classes on data science concepts and live practice
  • 1 Real world project
  • Chat group to discuss and clear doubts
  • Mentorship and interview preparation
