Machine learning tutorial

In our Python session today we had a go at using scikit-learn to identify handwritten digits. There’s a sample set of 1797 digits built into scikit-learn itself we can use to try this out quite quickly.

Jupyter notebooks are a really nice way to interactively work with Python, so I’ve written up a tutorial about identifying handwritten digits as a Jupyter notebook. You can see it here: https://github.com/andrewmccarthy/sklearn-digits-tutorial/blob/master/sklearn-digits-tutorial.ipynb
