Machine Learning Project Checklist

Summary: This checklist was created to help ML students/practitioners structure their projects and problems in a way that makes sense to me.

When I just got started learning Python for Machine Learning and worked on my first few projects, I found it very overwhelming because…

  • it was difficult to remember all of the steps I needed to take in order to make my data ML-friendly,
  • I couldn’t easily remember the functions, methods, and estimators from pandas, numpy, and sklearn, and
  • it was tedious and time-consuming to try to understand large (>50 feature) datasets

So, I created the ML checklist (Pictured Below) to be a handy tool for whenever I start to feel lost creating an ML project.

In this repo, I also created…

  1. ml_project_checklist_template.ipynb: (Pictured below) a Jupyter .ipynb that you can use as a template for your project or Kaggle competition
  2. data_cleaning_for_ml_lab_EXERCISES.ipynb: An exercises/lab that you can finish for data cleaning practice, originally made for a workshop that I gave
  3. data_cleaning_for_ml_lab_SOLUTIONS.ipynb: A solutions file for the exercises I give above
  4. boston.csv and cambridge.csv: Airbnb datasets from here used for the exercises
  5. I also included a PDF version of the checklist.

I hope you find these resources as useful as I do!

Happy learning :).
