Explore the different data mining techniques using the libraries and packages offered by Python
Grasp the basics of data loading, cleaning, analysis, and visualizationUse the popular Python libraries such as NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, and scikit-learn for data miningYour one-stop guide to build efficient data mining pipelines without going into too much theory
Data mining is a necessary and predictable response to the dawn of the information age. It is typically defined as the pattern and/ or trend discovery phase in the data mining pipeline, and Python is a popular tool for performing these tasks as it offers a wide variety of tools for data mining.
This book will serve as a quick introduction to the concept of data mining and putting it to practical use with the help of popular Python packages and libraries. You will get a hands-on demonstration of working with different real-world datasets and extracting useful insights from them using popular Python libraries such as NumPy, pandas, scikit-learn, and matplotlib. You will then learn the different stages of data mining such as data loading, cleaning, analysis, and visualization. You will also get a full conceptual description of popular data transformation, clustering, and classification techniques.
By the end of this book, you will be able to build an efficient data mining pipeline using Python without any hassle.
