These hands-on projects will level-up your Julia skills for data science, machine learning, and more.
In Julia for Data Science
you’ll take on challenging real-world projects that teach you core skills like:
Julia for Data Science
- Ingestion, analysis, and manipulation of data
- Producing stunning data visualizations
- Creating supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms
- Developing deep learning algorithms
- Deploying machine learning algorithms
- Packaging code
- Building web apps
tests and improves your Julia skills on the kind of tasks data scientists perform every day. These challenging projects will work out your Julia skills for importing, cleaning, manipulating, and visualizing data. As you read, you’ll learn to take advantage of Julia’s full potential, as you develop high-performance deep learning algorithms and tackle supervised and unsupervised learning.
about the technology
When you think “language flexibility,” think Julia. Designed to solve the “two-language problem”, Julia offers the best of both worlds: the simple and flexible syntax you need for data exploration, and the lightning-fast execution speeds demanded for production deployment. Plus, its growing ecosystem of data science libraries and ability to convert code to run on GPUs make Julia a real contender for building complex machine learning applications that don’t leave you waiting days to see results.
about the book
Julia for Data Science
challenges you with real-world projects like reading song lyrics from multiple text files and converting them into a data table, preparing credit application data for model development, and more. You’ll dive into developing powerful deep learning algorithms, and learn how Julia streamlines machine learning deployment. You’ll even pick up some new general purpose programming skills that are incredibly useful as a data scientist, including creating packages, building web apps, and writing domain-specific languages.
