The online tutorial Machine Learning for Astronomy with scikit-learn offers an introduction to the fields of machine learning and statistical data analysis, and their application to several problems in the field of astronomy. These learning tasks are enabled by the tools available in the open-source package scikit-learn.

This tutorial was presented at the Scipy 2012 conference and is available on video.

scikit-learn is a Python module integrating classic machine learning algorithms in the tightly-knit world of scientific Python packages (NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib). It aims to provide simple and efficient solutions to learning problems that are accessible to everybody and reusable in various contexts: machine-learning as a versatile tool for science and engineering.
