Play by Play: Machine Learning Exposed

by Katharine Beaumont and James Weaver

In this course, you’ll explore machine learning topics, such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and deep learning.

What you'll learn

Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in real time, unrehearsed, and unscripted. In this course, Play by Play: Machine Learning Exposed, James Weaver and Katharine Beaumont will start with the basics, and build up in an approachable way to some of the most interesting techniques machine learning has to offer. Explore Linear Regression, Neural Networks, clustering, and survey various machine learning APIs and platforms. By the end of this course, you'll get an overview of what you can achieve, as well as an intuition on the maths behind machine learning.
