NOTICE

We are open for classroom training with strict Covid-19 Level 1 protocols in place.

Details

Artificial Intelligence may be our generation's most exciting pursuit, and, in order for a machine to be intelligent, it must be able to learn. Machine learning is the process by which computer systems access data, run experiments, and learn from experience, much the same way we do. In this course, you will learn how to set up these systems and how they might benefit your business.

This dynamic course covers both theoretical explanations and practical activities, which comprise over 60% of the course. The main goal is that participants face “real” problems, experience consequential challenges and learn to come up with a solution – guided by the instructor at all stages of the process.

Schedule Dates and Booking

There are currently no scheduled dates.

Please note that this course needs a minimum of 6 delegates to schedule a course. You can choose to be added to the waiting list by clicking the button below and we will contact you when we have enough delegates interested. Should we not get enough delegates, we will refund or credit your paid booking.

Add me to the waiting list

Should you need this course urgently, the following options are available:

  1. Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will schedule the course as soon as possible.
  2. If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have paid for 3 delegates at least.
