Top 5 Data science and machine learning courses online in 2020

Why online courses?

    From the beginning of this COVID-19 situation the conditions for students don't seem quite good, all the classes have been shifted to the online mode, the teachers are not able to deliver the quality content in such a short notice, because let's be honest, nobody was prepared for the COVID-19 right? All of this might feel good to some extent because students don't have to attend those boring classes, teachers don't have to shout out loud in the class to make themselves audible and on top of all that the examinations are being postponed or canceled but believe me these things may cause really harmful effect of the future of a student, his growth and to the country. The world is not very kind to those who don't possess knowledge so for students they need to be educated and to grow themselves in such a way so that they can survive in today's high paces technological growth. This whole mess discussed above brings us to this topic. Because education is important and all the education systems are being shifted to the online mediums like coursera, udemy and youtube, we need to know what are the courses which are good for us, what courses are value for money and what are the platforms which are best for online courses.

What are Data Science and Machine Learning?

    Data Science and Machine Learning are two of the fastest growing technical fields nowadays and these possess a lot of opportunities for the engineers and developers. Almost every area of science and engineering either it is space science, medical science, businesses, physical science, geographical explorations, archeology or even game industry everybody is using Data Science and Machine Learning to explore better and to learn better. So we can quote that Data Science and Machine Learning are actually shaping our future.
    We can describe Data Science as the field which combines domain experience (by analysing data), programming knowledge and mathematics to extract some very useful information from data provided. We can consider Machine Learning as a use case of Data Science because we use the knowledge extracted from data to give machines the ability to learn and improve by themselves.
    In this article I will tell you about the top 5 Data science and machine learning courses online in 2020 you need to get immediately.

Top 5 Data science and machine learning courses

  • Python for Data Science and Machine Learning Bootcamp | Udemy

    One of the courses to get you started with Data science and Machine Learning is in my thought is present at udemy and is created by an author called Jose Portilla, this course has almost 83,000 reviews which average upto 4.6 out of 5. This course will fulfill your one of the basic requirements to start learning Data Science and Machine Learning which is Python Language. If you are a beginner and don't know anything about python or Data Science this course is for you. I just want to make it clear that I am not promoting this platform or this course because I am paid by them, though I have taken this course and it helped me learn a lot of things.

  • Machine Learning A-Z™: Hands-On Python & R In Data Science | Udemy

    The second course is from udemy again, this course is prepared by a group of authors named Kirill Eremenko, Hadelin de Ponteves, SuperDataScience Team and SuperDataScience Support. This course has been rated by 126,956 students and it has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5. The reviews show that it is a quite good course to start with. This course is a very deep dive of Machine Learning and Data Science because it covers almost all the topics of related fields with proper hands on practice. It also includes some mini projects to make you more confident throughout your learning.

  • Deep Learning and NLP A-Z™: How to create a ChatBot | Udemy

    Now when you have learned quite a bit of Machine Learning and Data Science, you must apply that knowledge to some projects so that you can solidify that learning in your brain and I this “Deep Learning and NLP A-Z™: How to create a ChatBot” from Udemy is exactly what you need to start with. This course is a step by step guide on how to create a chatbot using deep learning and machine learning. It includes the concepts of Data Science to process the data and analyse it. In short I can say it is a complete package. I know all of that because I myself created a chatbot using the knowledge gained by this course and have sold it in about 70 USD. This course has about 21,409 students at this time and the average rating of 4.3 out of 5.
    The courses I have told you about are from Udemy, after completing the course you will be getting a course completion certificate from udemy. But if you want to get a more valuable certificate with the tag of a very reputed company then the following courses are exactly for you.

  • IBM Data Science Professional Certificate | Coursera

    IBM Data Science professional certificate is one of the most popular Data Science Professional certificates at Coursera. This course can teach you everything about Data Science, it consists of 9 courses listed below:
    1. What is Data Science?
    2. Tools for Data Science
    3. Data Science Methodology
    4. Python for Data Science and AI
    5. Database and SQL for Data Science
    6. Data Analysis with Python
    7. Data Visualization with Python
    8. Machine Learning with Python
    9. Applied Data Science Capstone
    As you can see in the above list it covers every single topic of Data Science and Machine Learning. This course is created by a group of very skilled professionals namied Alex Aklson, Polong Lin, Romeo Kienzler, Sverlana Levitan, Joseph Santarcangelo, Rav Ahuja and Saeed Aghabozorgi. This course has 131,697 ratings averaging 4.6 out of 5. Frankly speaking this is a quite good course.

  • Applied Data Science with Python Specialization | Coursera

    The next course which I am going to tell you about is not a course from a reputed company but it is a course from a reputed University named University of Michigan This course is also a specialization course consisting of 5 courses listed below:
    1. Introduction to Data Science in Python
    2. Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python
    3. Applied Machine Learning in Python
    4. Applied Text Mining in Python
    5. Applied Social Networking Analysis in Python
    This course is created by a group of professors named Christopher Brooks, Kevyn Collins-Thompson, V.G. Vinod Vydiswaran and Daniel Romero. This course has 35,757 students and an average rating of 4.5 out of 5. So, this is also a really great course to learn from.
    All the course reviews I have mentioned above are based on my personal experience and the ratings they have from their learners. This was all about Top 5 Data science and machine learning courses online in 2020 please tell us what you think about these courses if you learn from them.
