Arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) and machine learn­ing (ML) inter­sect with busi­ness appli­ca­tions and process­es on a dai­ly basis. Hav­ing a foun­da­tion­al under­stand­ing of AI and machine learn­ing is crit­i­cal in the every work­place. This series will pro­vide man­agers and domain experts with the knowl­edge, skills, and com­pe­ten­cies they’ll need in order to under­stand the role of AI and ML in busi­ness, as well as how to man­age machine learn­ing projects.

Whether you are an engi­neer, tech­ni­cal man­ag­er or busi­ness man­ag­er, hav­ing an under­stand­ing of what ML does is fun­da­men­tal to suc­cess­ful ML project implementation.

Through a set of three work­shops (three days each), you will gain an under­stand­ing of super­vised, unsu­per­vised, and rein­force­ment learn­ing, the most wide­ly used meth­ods of machine learn­ing. From this foun­da­tion­al knowl­edge you will acquire a tech­ni­cal foun­da­tion to work with data and devel­op crit­i­cal prac­ti­cal skills to work with and ana­lyze machine learn­ing appli­ca­tions. Cours­es will cov­er machine learn­ing foun­da­tions, foun­da­tion­al tech­ni­cal skills, and machine learn­ing project man­age­ment principles.

There are no pre­req­ui­sites or entrance require­ments to take the cours­es with­in the series. Pri­or knowl­edge of basic pro­gram­ming, lin­ear alge­bra and sta­tis­tics is expect­ed. For those look­ing for more expe­ri­ence with Python, Exten­sion also offers con­densed Python I and Python 2 cours­es (click to view dates and to reg­is­ter) meant for work­ing professionals.

                                                                               

Courses are scheduled in the daytime.

Designed for managers, domain experts, and technical professionals.

Gaining foundational knowledge and technical skills in ML.
