Deliver huge improvements to your machine learning pipelines without spending hours fine-tuning parameters! This book’s practical case-studies reveal feature engineering techniques that upgrade your data wrangling—and your ML results.

In Feature Engineering Bookcamp you will learn how to:

  • Identify and implement feature transformations for your data
  • Build powerful machine learning pipelines with unstructured data like text and images
  • Quantify and minimize bias in machine learning pipelines at the data level
  • Use feature stores to build real-time feature engineering pipelines
  • Enhance existing machine learning pipelines by manipulating the input data
  • Use state of the start deep learning models to extract hidden patterns in data

Feature Engineering Bookcamp guides you through a collection of projects that give you hands-on practice with core feature engineering techniques. You’ll work with feature engineering practices that speed up the time it takes to process data and deliver real improvements in your model’s performance. This instantly-useful book skips the abstract mathematical theory and minutely-detailed formulas; instead you’ll learn through interesting code-driven case studies, including tweet classification, COVID detection, recidivism prediction, stock price movement detection, and more.

about the technology

Feature engineering is the secret weapon for improving your machine learning’s output. By enhancing the data ingestion, manipulation, and transformation elements of your pipeline, you can see dramatic improvements in your downstream results without endlessly fine-tuning parameters or chasing the latest models.

about the book

Feature Engineering Bookcamp delivers hands-on experience with important techniques for optimizing your training data. As you practice your skills in cleaning and transforming data, working with unstructured image and text data, and implementing bias mitigation, you’ll quickly see improvements in your end results. You’ll learn by exploring real-world scenarios from different domains, including healthcare, finance, and natural language processing.

about the reader
