About this Program
Machine learning — the ability for computers to detect patterns in data and use it to make predictions — is changing our world in profound ways. As the technology becomes faster and more accessible, machine learning is sparking innovations big and small, from customer service chatbots to predictive medicine. Future applications 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.
