This course will explore the concepts of Machine Learning (ML) and understand how itís transforming the digital world. Students will recognize how to enable computers to learn and adapt through experience to do specific tasks without explicit programming.

Machine learning is the method by which Artificial Intelligence (AI) can automatically learn and adapt to new information without being manually programmed. Machine learning is becoming more commonplace as AI advances and businesses are looking to make the most out of this technology.

Our machine learning course breaks down various machine learning models and shows students how these forms of AI can be used to provide unique business solutions. Throughout the machine learning crash course, students will learn the differences between supervised and unsupervised learning and find out how recommendation engines and time-series modeling works.

Many AI programs run through cloud services, and our machine learning online course will demonstrate what services are available and what functions they best serve. Students will leave the machine learning course with a firm understand of the fundamentals of how AI learns and interacts in a digital space.

There are no pre-requisites for this course, but students who have some knowledge of programming language are bound to get more out of the experience. Whether youíre already working in the tech industry, or looking to take your first step in, Ashton Collegeís machine learning course will help you advance your knowledge and get ahead in the industry.

Machine†Learning Course Prerequisites

None, however, knowledge of logic and any programming language is an asset, but not required.
