In this blog you learn some important machine learning algorithms using MNIST Dataset:

Support Vector Machines.
In this exercise, you'll be working with the MNIST digits recognition dataset, which has 10 classes, the digits 0 through 9! A reduced version of the MNIST dataset is one of scikit-learn's included datasets, and that is the one we will use in this exercise.
Each sample in this scikit-learn dataset is an 8x8 image representing a handwritten digit. Each pixel is represented by an integer in the range 0 to 16, indicating varying levels of black.
To load dataset, using the following code:
Display a random number to verify the dataset
Before applying the classifier, we need to split the dataset into training and testing parts.
1. k-Nearest Neighbors
Build KNN classifier for the above dataset
1.1 Varying Number of Neighbours
In this exercise, you need to compute and plot the training and testing accuracy scores with different values of k (e.g. 1 to 8).
1.2 Overfitting vs. Underfitting
Which values of k makes the discrepancy between training accuracy and testing accuracy bigger or smaller? Which case is underfitting and which case is overfitting? Explain why.
2. Linear Regression
Build Linear Regression classifier using the same dataset
3. Support Vector Machines
In this section, you need to compute the accuracy scores of the same dataset using SVM classifiers.
4. Naïve Bayes
Classify above dataset using Naïve Bayes classifier.
5. Model Evaluation
Compare the accuracy of different classifiers in the plot.
In this part, you will be working with the Iris dataset
Load this dataset from scikit-learn
Classify using following techniques (kNN, Bayes, SVM).
Compare the accuracy of different classifiers in the plot
