About this course

This course has a simple mission: to give you a solid understanding of what Machine Learning is.  Mastering the terminology is your first step to understanding the ideas and capabilities. 

Machine learning is a capability that business leaders should grasp if they want to extract value from data.   There's a lot of hype; but there's some truth: the use of modern data science techniques could translate to a leap forward in progress or a significant competitive advantage.  Often you can buy "AI-powered" solutions; but you should consider how your organization's core competencies could benefit from machine learning. 

No coding or complex math. This is not a hands-on course. We set out to explain all of the fundamental concepts you'll need in plain English.


Who this course is for:
  • Business leaders, executives, product managers, process owners, service managers, as well as aspiring and experienced data scientists.
  • Suitable for people with both technical and non-technical backgrounds.
