Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) which has a focus on data and the use of algorithms to mimick how humans learn, gradually improving it's accuracy.
Anyone who wants to learn about machine learning and understand the basics of artificial intelligence.
No prerequisites are needed to take this course. It is an intro to machine learning course so beginners are welcome!
You will learn:
What is Machine Learning
Illustrating the machine learning process
What are the different styles of machine learning algorithms
and many more topics!
The three types of machine learning are supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning. It is good to know which type you are using to measure your progress and success accurately.
