You will have built several models under the watch of our teachers. You’ll explore decision trees, classification and regression algorithms, as well as k-means clustering.
All of this will be conducted in Python, giving you an introduction to the key libraries pandas and NumPy.
We firmly believe in classroom-based study versus online, pre-recorded content, because it ensures your teacher is always on-hand to help you with the challenges you encounter.
You’ll also have ongoing access to the course content to take home and work on at your own pace.
Our Machine Learning teachers are Data Scientists.
They come with years of commercial experience.

“It was pretty awesome. A relaxed, short course that gave a great insight into how machine learning works. It’s a complex subject that can’t be mastered in a week! But to get great insights and experience from within this field was fantastic.”
