Anomaly Detection Session 1: Exploratory data analysis using python to discover the category of data

October 2, 2020
Start Time
10:00 AM PST
End Time
11:00 AM PST


This is part of Machine Learning-Driven Anomaly Detection

In this session, you will learn what exactly is anomalous data? Is it extreme values or rare values? We will run various data exploration techniques using various python libraries to determine what kind of data we have.  Once that determination has been made we will be able to choose the right anomaly detection algorithm.

This is a FREE class!


Can’t make it to live session?  No worries.  Go ahead and register; we will send you the session recording .
See below for past session recordings & notes
