Technical Learning

Dive into the foundations of applied machine learning (ML), decision trees, data cleaning, K-NN, regression and more.

Applied Learning

Learn techniques you can apply in game development, customer interaction, recommender systems, and across industries like health, finance, oil & gas and supply chain.

Modern businesses recognize the transformative power of AI but are also facing a severe shortage of skilled workers. The demand for AI and ML expertise is growing across all industries. Through the marriage of your domain expertise with technical ML skills, companies can gain competitive advantages.

We take a project-based and blended learning approach to training with lectures, programming labs and group work. Many of our technical training opportunities include capstone projects that conclude with feedback from a panel of experts and referrals for internships, apprenticeships and ML lead roles.
