How is it useful?
Machine learning is based on algorithms that can learn from data without relying on rules-based programming
As ever more of the analog world gets digitized, our ability to learn from data by developing and testing algorithms will only become more important for what are now seen as traditional businesses. Google chief economist Hal Varian calls this “computer kaizen.” For “just as mass production changed the way products were assembled and continuous improvement changed how manufacturing was done,” he says, “so continuous [and often automatic] experimentation will improve the way we optimize business processes in our organizations.
Machine learning and Data science need thus has increased multifold in past few years and would keep on increasing. At the same time there is a dearth of experienced professionals who know Machine learning and Data Science.
This program addresses two basic needs
- Practical tool based Machine learning and Data Science exposure for every working professional
- Ability for the working professional to acquire this knowledge in the most agile and speedily manner
There are no dearth of programs where folks would need to spend infinite amount of time and efforts to acquire this knowledge. The challenge is for working professionals to spend so much time. Most often this rigor is lost over few weeks or months.
Am I Eligible?
There are no pre-requisites for this certification program except having some prior knowledge of any programming language and basics of mathematics and statistics. Program is Python driven and having prior knowledge of Python would be an advantage.
