Welcome on the course. On this course, you will learn about the basics of machine learning.
During the course, we will review the following: what is data science, what is artificial intelligence, what is machine learning, and the most common types of machine learning. You will also learn basic programming skills and some statistics and mathematics related with data science.
The course material is easy to follow and will take some time to complete, but please do go through all the material as in order to pass this course, you have to take the test and answer questions from the material.
Artifical intelligence and machine learning are already a big part of our lives. After the course, you will have basic knowledge of them both.
The lessons provide essential theory and tasks teach you knowledge and skills useful for your future job interview.
These courses are the first steps on your journey to becoming a sought-after and highly paid Artificial Intelligence or machine learning expert. June 2021, and employment service provider Indeed.com reported the average salary for a machine learning engineer as $ 151,000 (https://www.indeed.com/career/machine-learning-engineer/salaries). In some cities with the highest demand, the average salary can go up to almost $ 200,000. And this was just the average salary!
If you want to work for big players like Google, Amazon, or Apple, strong artifical intelligence skills are probably the best way to get a job from these iconic companies. And at the same time from any company in general.
This course is the first part of our Basics Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning course set. Each of these courses is worth 2 ECTS study credits, totaling up to 8 European ECTS study credits. ECTS facilitates the acceptance of studies abroad, the application to foreign universities and are highly regarded among international employers. During this course, we'll give you a simple, and easy-to-understand introduction to the mysterious world of AI and ML.
In general, things related to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are often difficult and can seem daunting. But this is not the case with this course! We’ll explain in a simple and pragmatic way how to get started in your career towards Artificial Intelligence expertise. During the course, you will develop a hands-on Machine Learning model you can use to impress your friends and future employers alike. By being able to build a working ML model from scratch and explain how it works to anyone, you will significantly improve your chances of getting a job as an Artificial Intelligence expert.
This course has been built in Finland by a Finnish top university KAMK. The Finnish education system is generally acknowledged as the best in the world. You can find out more about it online by searching for “Finland's best education system in the world”. Our goal was to create a set of courses that truly represents that standard, and delivers you the highest quality online education possible.
So, why is this particular AI/ML online course the best choice for starting your journey towards becoming an expert:
There is an acute shortage of AI experts. The high employment rate for experts.
AI professionals have a high level of pay.
Simple and practical teaching methods.
A specific Machine Learning model that you can show off in a job interview.
High-quality Finnish course implementation.
Your future in AI and ML awaits you, get started today!
The contents of this course are:
Machine learning statistics and mathematics
Practical machine learning
To participate on this course, you will need:
As you can see, you do not need any prior programming skills. Neither does this course require university level mathematics: if you are able to calculate sums and differences, multiply and divide, you should do just fine. Adding power function and square root will make you fly.
Before diving into the course, we would like to learn to know you a bit. Please write a short introduction of yourself, tell us who you are, where you come from and what is your educational background. You can use your nickname and you do not have to be too detailed with your description if you want to keep your privacy.
We also want to know about your previous education, what do you know by far about AI and ML, and also if you have any previous knowledge of programming. Tell us also about the expectations for this course, what you would want to learn and what are you going to do with all those skills in the future?
After you have written your introduction, you will get to read a similar introduction of few other persons also on this course. You’ll get to say your hellos and cheers, and also to give some feedback to them about their plans.
Later during this course, you will be writing some short essays of various subjects. This introduction will also teach you the writing and feedback tools applied in those exercises.
