Two Coursera AI Specializations launched

Amii is pleased to announce the launch of two massive open online courses (MOOCs) on Coursera! Take top-tier AI courses taught by leaders in the field. Best of all? You can try before you buy with a 7-day free trial. Learn more about each course below:


Machine Learning: Algorithms in the Real World Specialization

Machine Learning: Algorithms in the Real World specialization is offered by Amii, and taught by our Senior Scientific Advisor, Anna Koop. This specialization is for professionals who have heard the buzz around machine learning and want to apply machine learning to data analysis and automation. Whether finance, medicine, engineering, business or other domains, this specialization will set you up to define, train, and maintain a successful machine learning application.

After completing all four courses, you will have gone through the entire process of building a machine learning project. You will be able to clearly define a machine learning problem, identify appropriate data, train a classification algorithm, improve your results, and deploy it in the real world. You will also be able to anticipate and mitigate common pitfalls in applied machine learning.


Reinforcement Learning Specialization

Reinforcement Learning Specialization is offered by the University of Alberta and Amii, and taught by Amii Fellows at UAlberta, Martha White and Adam White. This specialization explores the power of adaptive learning systems and artificial intelligence (AI). Learn how Reinforcement Learning (RL) solutions help solve real-world problems through trial-and-error interaction by implementing a complete RL solution from beginning to end.

After completing all four courses, learners will understand the foundations of much of modern probabilistic AI and be prepared to take more advanced courses, or to apply AI tools and ideas to real-world problems. This content will focus on “small-scale” problems in order to understand the foundations of RL, as taught by world-renowned experts at the University of Alberta.

The tools learned in this specialization can be applied to game development (AI), customer interaction (how a website interacts with customers), smart assistants, recommender systems, supply chain, industrial control, finance, oil & gas pipelines, industrial control systems and more.
