Is that spam in my ham? A novice's inquiry into classification.


Supervised learning, machine learning, classifiers! Help? In this talk I define a problem, identifying an email as spam, from the perspective of a beginner and show how Python can help us learn to classify. We will translate knowing spam "when I see it" into a basic model and use a Naive Bayes classifier to determine if email is spam. We will train our classifier with examples and practice!
