About this Program


Machine learning is changing our world in profound and fundamental ways. We can already see the results in innovations such as customized online recommendations, speech recognition, predictive policing and fraud detection. Future applications are limited only by the imagination.

In this three-course certificate program, we’ll examine all aspects of machine learning. You’ll study the probability concepts and statistical methods that are at the core of machine learning algorithms. We’ll also practice ways to apply these techniques, using open-source tools — along with your developing judgment and intuition — to address actual business needs and real-world challenges. 

DESIGNED FOR

Software programmers, statisticians, experienced applied mathematicians and data scientists who want to become machine learning specialists.
