Seize the modern day with our practical Machine Learning course that emphasizes supervised learning and neural networks.

This course is perfect for math and code lovers — or anyone passionate about cutting edge technology. By the end of it, you will be able to understand the fundamentals of machine learning, implement its algorithms from scratch using Python libraries, and build and train neural networks to solve real-world problems. Your final project is exactly that — a deployed machine learning model for a system or idea of your choice.

Admission requirements

Some programming experience, ideally in Python
but solid knowledge of the fundamentals in any programming language is enough. So if you’ve coded before, you’ve got this one down. Feeling unsure? Check out our Python development course and consider it first.
Being comfortable with high-school mathematics
as this course will contain derivatives, matrix and vector operations, etc. You don’t need to be a calculus expert, but to get the most out of this course, you should be able to follow along with the foundations. Revise some math materials online or dust off your high-school workbook — and you’ll be ready in no time.
Intermediate English and above.

The place of Machine Learning

Being the “brain” behind artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning enables computers to learn from data and make smart decisions without explicit instructions. Its adoption by businesses across all industries is ever increasing — and so is the need for Machine learning engineers.

According to the World Economic Forum, the demand for AI and Machine learning specialists is expected to grow by 40% from 2023 to 2027. On LinkedIn, there are currently over 100,000 Machine learning engineer vacancies worldwide, with the average salary for Juniors sitting at 68,000 EUR a year.

What exactly is machine learning?
We can think of it as finding patterns in data. When you develop a machine learning method (also called algorithm), it can, for example, predict the price of a house based on its size, the number of rooms, and other properties. This course is focused on so-called “supervised learning”, where we “show” the learning algorithm a lot of data samples: say, prices of different kinds of houses. In other words, our application finds patterns in data we provide and learns to recognize them in other settings.
Why is everybody buzzing about AI?
There are several factors that make our modern day a prime time for AI. Over the past 60 years, processing power has increased by a trillion-fold, so our computers are faster and can run more complex algorithms. Also, the cost of data storage and processing has lowered while businesses are collecting more data than ever before. That’s why AI is actively used to improve consumer apps and products, and this demand is driving further innovation and research.
What are some career opportunities in machine learning?
Machine learning is already something you use every day, perhaps without knowing it — for example, when doing a web search, or when your email application detects and removes spam for you. There is a large, unfulfilled demand for the machine learning skill set. Once you learn how to implement machine learning models, you can work on projects about personalized product recommendations; self-driving vehicles, speech/language recognition, personalized medication, and much more. Chances are, there will be machine learning positions in any field that sparks your interest.
How does machine learning differ from traditional programming?
Machine learning automates the process of learning from data to generate solutions, while traditional programming requires the programmer to manually specify the steps to solve a problem. Machine learning is often better suited for complex problems that involve identifying patterns in large datasets, such as predicting customer behavior or detecting fraud. Traditional programming may be better for problems that require precise control over the logic and functionality of a program, such as developing a video game or operating system.
What if I don’t know how to code or do advanced math operations?
Our main idea behind this course is to satisfy the curiosity of those already working within technology, IT, engineering, etc. If you don’t fall into this category and have no coding experience, you would need to take a programming course — be it self-paced or teacher-led.  The best choice of programming language is definitely Python, so we recommend starting there. As far as math goes, there are many free resources covering the basics of linear regression or matrix-vector operations. Look up the topics of the first module and get comfortable with the concepts. You don’t need a PhD in mathematics to do machine learning!
What kind of project work is included in this course?
There are two projects in the course. At the end of module 2, you will be implementing a neural network from scratch using numpy (a Python library). The final project at the end of the course is about deploying a keras model to make it available for use by some application. It is a creative outlet as you’re free to choose the system you’ll be developing the model for — maybe you already have some unmet demand at your workplace or a fresh idea you’d like to bring into the world. This project is meant to be open-ended, so you can keep working on it as much as you need after the course is over.
Where can I find testimonials about the Academy?
Explore our graduates' reviews on popular feedback platforms like Course Report and Trustpilot. Also, find out more about their experience on our website.
How do you keep your courses relevant?
To ensure our courses remain up-to-date and relevant to the ever-evolving tech industry, we update our curriculum on a regular basis.We also employ industry experts as instructors, ensuring that our students receive the latest insights and tools from professionals who are actively shaping the tech landscape. In addition to our internal updates, we also actively seek feedback from our students and teachers.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
Yes, your digital certificate will look like this. Our graduates add certificates to LinkedIn and other social networks to verify their skills. But most importantly, you will gain practical knowledge directly from a middle+ level specialist, create a portfolio, improve your soft skills by working side by side with other students, and prepare your CV, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile for job search in a new field.
