Hi everybody, I’m David Chappell. Welcome to my course Understanding Machine Learning.

I’m the Principal of Chappell & Associates in San Francisco, California, And I’m convinced that the rise of machine learning is among the most important trends of our time. Machine learning underlies many of the services you use today, including things like speech recognition and recommendations from Amazon and even whether a grocery store lets you use your credit card for your latest purchase.

This course is a quick introduction to machine learning. No prior knowledge is required.

The major topics we’ll cover include:

  • What machine learning is and what it can be used for
  • The machine learning process
  • The basic concepts and terminology of the field

By the end of this course, you’ll know enough to go deeper, if you choose to, and to start thinking intelligently about whether machine learning can help your organization.

I hope you’ll join me to learn about this important topic with the Understanding Machine Learning course at Pluralsight.
