0A039G - Advanced Machine Learning Models Using IBM SPSS Modeler (V18.2)

Course Eligible for IBM Digital Badge

This course presents advanced models available in IBM SPSS Modeler. The participant is first introduced to a technique named PCA/Factor, to reduce the number of fields to a number of core factors, referred to as components or factors. The next topics focus on supervised models, including Support Vector Machines, Random Trees, and XGBoost. Methods are reviewed on how to analyze text data, combine individual models into a single model, and how to enhance the power of IBM SPSS Modeler by adding external models, developed in Python or R, to the Modeling palette.

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

I was really happy with the overall experience of attending a remote course through ExitCeritfied.

well organized and designed course. Tommy is good teacher and answer our all the questions

Well structured, easy to understand exercises. Some are more complex and need more context in order to fully understand.
