Gain the technical skills you need to succeed in a career in AI

This course will develop your ML knowledge and skills in order to define and execute a machine learning project that supports your organization’s business priorities. What you learn in this course will take you from the brainstorming phase of a business idea to the identification of the right data and the execution and evaluation of the right model. We will accomplish this with multiple model implementations that culminate in the delivery of your group’s course project.

You’ll graduate from the course with:

  • A foundational, science-based understanding of machine learning;
  • The skills to confidently create a business case for an ML project at your company;
  • The ability to undertake an ML project or apply for a job with AI/ML requirements;
  • Experience with all stages of a machine learning project.

Learning Objectives

You'll experience all stages of a machine learning project: from problem definition and data preparation; through model selection and tuning; to model evaluation based on your business outcome.

  • Identify and scope an ML problem that aligns with your organization’s business outcomes
  • Pre-process, collect and summarize the most appropriate real-world data for your model
  • Build the right model for your business problem by using sound estimation principles and accurately evaluating the performance of your ML model
  • Understand the science of machine learning, where it comes from and how it works
  • Apply Amii’s ML frameworks that support the effective and efficient development of ML models

Apply by January 18 for the Winter 2022 cohort!
