Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are revolutionizing how society operates. Some companies already make full use of AI to benefit their customers. Amazon, for instance, uses algorithms to accurately predict what we might like to purchase. Apple has introduced smart assistant Siri to our phones, while Tesla vehicles have incorporated predictive capabilities and self-driving features. Throughout this course, you will discover how foundational data science models are leveraged to obtain increased technological power: more computing power, more complex layers, and different sampling techniques that will refine the accuracy of predictions.

Do You Want to Enhance Your Python Skills?

This course, technical in nature, is intended for those who already have working knowledge of Python and a solid understanding of linear algebra.

If you feel you do not have the previous experience required and are not comfortable working with these concepts, we recommend you take our Statistics for Data Science course to learn about the statistical elements applied to data science, or our Python for Data Science to learn how to code in Python.
