Machine learning concerns the study and application of algorithms and statistics in order to get machines to solve new problems that haven’t previously occurred, and then to ‘learn’ these problems and solve them in the future, should they return.

On this module, learners can expect an overview of the mathematical foundations of machine learning and its workflow. You will also learn about predictive analysis as this is the basis of machine learning.

You will learn by completing technical exercises and collaborating with fellow students on projects.

Key Benefits

  • Comprehend fundamental ML concepts: how data can reveal patterns, correlations, associations and, eventually, predictions
  • Know the different types of ML, where each is applicable and their capabilities and limitations

  • Grasp mathematical concepts from statistics that are closely related to machine learning

  • ML in practice: code and evaluate algorithms

  • Understand the design of a machine learning project, why this can optimise performance and increase business competitiveness. Identify cases where ML has offered automation and better decisions
