About this Program


Machine learning — the ability for computers to detect patterns in data and use it to make predictions — continues to change our world in profound ways. As the technology becomes faster and more accessible, machine learning practice and operation helps us grow automation and efficiency in existing fields and open new areas of exploration. Future machine learning innovations are limited only by the imagination.

In this three-course certificate program, we’ll prepare you for the machine learning scientist or machine learning engineer role. We’ll examine both the mathematical and applied aspects of machine learning. You’ll study the underlying algorithms and statistical methods that are at the core of machine learning techniques. We’ll also apply these practices using the most popular tools and platforms — along with your developing judgment and intuition — to address actual business needs and real-world challenges.
