We would have come across Machine Learning in our everyday lives, unknowingly – recommended titles to watch on Netflix, or similar products that you can buy on Amazon.
Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence, where it enables systems to learn and improve from experience and new data, without being explicitly programmed.
The recent focus on Machine Learning is due to the abundance of data in today’s world. Organisations are now able to glean valuable insights from data being collected – such as when to conduct predictive maintenance before equipment failure, sales forecasting, supply optimisation, and personalised recommendation. These insights would then allow organisations to implement strategies and solutions to stay ahead in its competition.
This applied learning workshop comprises two learning phases:
Phase 1 (2 days) prepares you with the foundational skills and knowledge required to get started with Machine Learning development. In this phase, we will explain the various Machine Learning techniques, share use-cases, prepare Machine Learning-ready data, perform modelling and prediction.
- Phase 2 (2 days) focuses on project development facilitation. You will work in team of up to four participants on a real case scenario. A mentor will be assigned to guide and facilitate the progress of your project.
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Learn the building blocks of Machine Learning solution
- Gather and prepare data for Machine Learning
- Train, evaluate and deploy the model
- Apply Machine Learning on a real use-case or other scenarios in the project (Phase 2).
For effective learning and achieving outcome of this training, all teams shall scope the use-case projects before Phase 2 course commence. You may consult the mentors for your project scope.
