Applied Machine Learning (AML) is a subset of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which enables computers to ‘learn’ to improve their performance on tasks, without explicitly being programmed. AML has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome.

With our suite of four AML micro-credential courses, you will gain the necessary knowledge and hands-on skills to support data-driven business organizations and leverage AI technologies. You will also use a production-grade Machine Learning platform to ensure that your learning outcomes are aligned with the relevant skills and competencies that are demanded by today’s employers.

This program is ideal for professionals in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), energy, technology, supply chain, logistics, aviation and more, who are looking to enhance their understanding and develop their skills in AML. Recent post-secondary graduates can also benefit from expanded career opportunities from the knowledge and skills gained through these courses. No previous experience with computer programming or coding in AI or Machine Learning is required.

Materials: All course materials are included. Tuition fee includes access to the production-grade Machine Learning platform for the duration of the course.
