This 6-video course focuses on understanding Google's TensorFlow estimators, and showing learners how they simplify the task of building simple linear and logistic regression models for machine learning solutions. As a prerequisite, learners should have a basic understanding of ML (machine learning), and basic experience programming in Python. Though not required, familiarity with the Scikit-learn library and the Keras API will simplify the labs part of this course. First, you will learn how TensorFlow estimators abstract many of the details in creating a neural network, and you will then learn that you no longer need to define the type of neural network model, nor will you need to add definitions to layer. When using an estimator, learners only need to feed in training and validation data. In the course labs, you will build both a linear regression model and a classifier by using TensorFlow estimators. Finally, you will learn how to evaluate your model using the prebuilt methods available in the estimator.

## WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• describe the role of estimators in speeding up the development of standard regression and classification models prepare a dataset to be used to train and validate a linear regression estimator use the estimator's methods to train and evaluate the model and visualize its performance using Matplotlib
• transform a dataset so that it can be used to train and validate a linear classifier estimator use input functions to pass training and validation data to an estimator and evaluate its performance on utilize TensorFlow estimators with linera regression models
