Machine Learning

What if we could predict the future? We’re certainly not there yet, but machine learning takes us a step closer. This fast-growing field is responsible for some of the coolest tech we have today, from Netflix and Spotify algorithms that learn your taste and make recommendations, to detecting bank fraud. Machine learning specialists train computers to do tasks that would take a human years, in a matter of seconds. They create models that make sense of big data, and that allow machines to continuously learn from and improve their analysis. If you’re looking to take a step towards a rewarding, in-demand career or you just want to know more about this exciting area, this is the course for you. Python is our language of choice, so if you’re not already familiar with it we suggest you take a look at our Introduction to Python course before you begin.

A Guide To Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence
Thanks to science fiction from the past century, most people are familiar with the idea of robots and artificial intelligence. However, people often think of science fiction cliches -- killer robots, malevolent AI like Hal in 2001: A Space Odyssey, or even dystopian modern movies like The Circle when they hear these terms. While there are issues and risks with using robots and artificial intelligence in the real world, the modern ideas of these topics are much more promising and exciting than the dark (yet entertaining) visions of the science fiction genre.
