Machine learning is a big buzzword in today's society, and more often than not it seems as daunting as it is powerful. Thankfully, with many powerful libraries out there like scikit-learn, you can get started with several different types of machine learning in just a few minutes. Join Heather Kemp, a Data Intelligence Engineer at Microsoft, for an introduction to common types of machine learning followed by a coding workshop on getting started with Clustering algorithms.

If you want to follow along with the workshop, be sure to download the following in advance:

Python 3.8 (but 3.x should work)

Sample CSV Data set - I'll be using Pokemon :) kaggle.com/abcsds/pokemon/data

Additionally, you'll need to install the following Python dependencies:

sklearn (See scikit-learn.org/stable/install.html#installing-the-latest-release for help)

matplotlib (See matplotlib.org/3.2.1/users/installing.html for help)
