The ALT.Labs series aims to give participants of the community detailed hands-on expertise on the latest technologies in the current industrial revolution ranging from IOT, Cloud Computing, Robotics, AI & Big (Extreme) Data, and Cyber Security.

In this series, as a continuation to the data science portion, the trainer/speaker will go through the basics of Machine Learning using Python 3, a powerful and prominent language used widely for data analysis and data science.

The participants will be taken through the basic theories of Supervised and Unsupervised Machine Learning as well as some algorithms. From there, the participants will also be given some real-life examples and have a hands-on coding session using Python 3 and its machine learning library.

As this will be a hands-on session, the participants are expected to have their own laptop installed with Python 3 and Jupyter Notebook before coming to the session, or they will have an option of running their codes on Google’s Colab.
