Why Study Applied Machine learning?

There is a growing demand for machine learning specialists worldwide. Companies have begun to implement machine learning in their businesses to improve performance and efficiency and reduce costs. With machine learning expertise, you will be the driving force behind this development.

Machine learning is a fundamental part of artificial intelligence, which involves teaching systems to generate new insights from existing data. The aim is to enable the system to recognise patterns without additional programming, making this approach highly valuable to businesses.

The programme will give you an insight into the fundamental aspects of machine learning, as well as basic programming skills in Python. You will learn how to use this to process data and prepare it for use in machine learning models, as well as how to interpret and visualise the results.

Career Opportunities

After completing Applied Machine Learning, you can pursue careers such as:

  • AI engineer
  • Data Analyst
  • Machine Learning Engineer
  • Software developer
  • Consultant in artificial intelligence and data mining
