You have a complex problem involving a large amount of data and lots of variables. You know that machine learning would be the best approach—but you’ve never used it before. How do you deal with data that’s messy, incomplete, or in a variety of formats? How do you choose the right model for the data?

Sounds daunting? Don’t be discouraged. A systematic workflow will help you get off to a smooth start.

Read the ebook to go step by step from the basics to advanced techniques and algorithms:
