Course Description

Embark on a transformative learning journey where you'll explore the core principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML). Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that enables computers to learn and make decisions without explicit programming. It involves the development of algorithms that enable systems to analyze data, recognize patterns and improve performance over time. 

From the basics to more advanced techniques, you'll learn to identify opportunities for machine learning. You'll explore how to clearly define machine learning problems and use data science techniques to analyze and solve business problems. Our hands-on approach in this course focuses on tabular data, guiding you through the creation of supervised learning solutions. Gain expertise in the entire modeling process, from constructing classifications to evaluating models that solve business problems and elevate business strategies.

The course experience is designed and delivered in partnership with Braintoy, the creator of Canada's first low-code / no-code applied machine learning platform. It is well suited to individuals who are technically curious but not necessarily technically experienced. If you have an interest and aptitude for learning new technologies this course has been designed with you in mind. The course offers an applied experience using a low-code / no-code environment to build and evaluate supervised learning models. No prior programming experience is required. The course will provide you with a citizen developer skillset in supervised learning. A citizen developer skillset empowers individuals, typically with non-technical backgrounds, to create and customize solutions without extensive coding. It promotes agility, innovation and self-sufficiency within the workplace, allowing you to contribute actively to the development and improvement of solutions that support business functions within your current and future roles.

Note: Registration for this course closes two days before the course start date.
