Top 20 Data Science and Machine Learning Projects in Python (Part-II)


Guys! I hope you all are enjoyed reading my earlier article Part – I 10/20, and I trust that would be useful for you. Let’s discuss the rest of the project quickly.

11. Learn to prepare data for your next machine learning project.


Problem Statement & Solution

When you€™re dealing with NLP based problem statement, we must focus on €œText Data€ preparation before you can start using it for any NLP algorithm. The foremost step is that text cleaning and processing is an important task in every machine learning project, even if we are working on the text-based task and making sense of textual data. So, when dealing with text, we must take extra causes for Text Classification, Text Summarization, understanding Tokenization, and Bag of Words preparation.

The big challenge here is constructing features from Text Data and creating synthetic features, which are really critical tasks. On top of it how to apply machine learning models to develop classifiers is also tricky.


Indeed, this project would help to understand the text classification and susceptible analysis area in various domains.

12. Time Series Forecasting with LSTM Neural Network Python


Problem Statement & Solution

Always Time series prediction problems are a challenging form of predictive modelling problems. The Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) network is a type of recurrent neural network used in deep learning since very large architectures can be successfully trained. It is used to add the complexity of sequences and dependence among the input variables.

LSTM is a type of recurrent neural network that can learn the dependence between items in sequence order. This type itself promises to be able to understand the context required to make predictions in terms of TIME-SERIES FORECASTING problems.

As we know, deep learning is one leading technology where we can implement many things as we do in our day-to-day business operations, including segmentation, clustering, forecasting, prediction, or recommendation, etc. Deep learning architecture has many branches. One of them is the recurrent neural network (RNN). The method that we are going to analyze in this deep-learning project is about Long Short-Term Memory Network (LSTM) to perform time series forecasting for univariate time series data.

13. Bosch Production Line Performance Data Science Project


Problem Statement & Solution

In this data science project, we could predict internal failures of the assembly line in Bosch. The business problem has been addressed during the chocolate souffle manufacturing process, and the process itself bit challenging since the good chocolate souffle is decadent, delicious, and delicate. So, we have to follow up the steps; if something goes wrong, we must retrace the steps we did wrong. But here, we have the major advantage with Bosch€™s mechanical components of the highest quality and safety standards.

And on top of this, they have features that record the data at every step along its assembly lines and can apply advanced analytics to improve the manufacturing processes and its quality. Even though the nature of the data might vary, and its complexity could increase, we certainly need a data science-specific solution to resolve the problems concerning the production line dataset and predict internal failures using data available in each component along the assembly line. This would facilitate Bosch to bring quality products at reducing costs to the end-user benefits.

15. Predict Employee Computer Access Needs in Python


Predicting employee access needs to be based on their job role and responsibilities (R&R) from the employee database. What is the deal? I can understand your question. Yes. Of Course, this is a huge deal like Amazon, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft, Google, Microsoft, etc.,

In this current digital world, when an employee starts his/her work, they should get a laptop and access to proprietary software necessary to fulfill their R&R. It is assumed that employees are fulfilling their functions of a given role on a day-to-day basis.

In some situations, in most of the organization, it is often that the employees chase and figure out the list access they need to accomplish their duties with the help of their counterparts, otherwise as they encounter roadblocks during their daily work at least the initial period.

This is quite interesting that automating the process based on the R&R. Since there is a considerable amount of data regarding an employee€™s R&R generated within an organization, certainly, we could use this information as a base; obviously, we must revisit regularly to fine to the mapping, this mapping would be the resource. We could build the model that automatically determines access privileges and pass on the information to the relevant department and auto-installation process. This is very well applicable even employees enter and leave roles within a company.

Ultimately, this project could build an auto-access machine learning model that eliminates the considerable manual intervention and keeps the highly critical part only routed to manual approvals. At the same time, the model will revoke employee access based on other situations.

18. Deploying auto-reply Twitter handle with Kafka, Spark, and LSTM


As we know, natural language processing (NLP) focuses on interpreting text and speech in the same manner as humans do. It helps the computer to understand by breaking down the human text in ways that make sense to absorbs and store the information. NLP€™s role in social media is beyond our thought process, which helps to finds hidden data insights, especially in the space of Sentiment Analysis, in which by analyzing the languages used in social media reviews, comments again the post and extracts attitudes and emotions on the post(s) €“ Eventually, this helps to promote the events and products.

The companies have used this analysis for various purposes – campaigns of the product, customer mindset on the product. The whole architecture can be clubbed with NER (Named Entity Recognition), a technique for recognizing words or sentences as valuable entities.

The objective of this auto-reply Twitter project is to listen to live tweets and respond back using the NLP pipeline.

A chatbot simulates and processing human conversation, it could be either way [written or spoken]. This is computer programming allowing humans to interact with digital devices as a real person interaction. We could build two types of chatbots – Rule-based chatbots and AI-based chatbots.

RULE-BASED CHATBOTS: Pre-defined rules, User input must align with these pre-set rules to get an approximate answer.

AI-BASED CHATBOTS: Artificial intelligence (AI) based chatbots make use of Machine Learning algorithms to understand the situation and meaning of a question before preparing a response back to an interacting person. Answers are prepared by using Natural-Language responses. Based on the usage these bots use to train themselves and support questions
