Machine learning (ML) is the kind of programming which gives computers the capability to automatically learn from data without being explicitly programmed. This means in other words that these programs change their behavior by learning from data.
We will cover various aspects of machine learning in this tutorial. Of course, everything will be related to Python. So it is Machine Learning by using Python. It might well be that you came to this website when looking for an answer to the question:
What is the best programming language for machine learning?
Python is clearly one of the top players!

Prerequisites
Basics of programming (any language), basics of linear algebra, basics of probability theory.
