Machine Learning for Humans

Course Information

Course name

Machine Learning for Humans (Asynchronous e-Learning)

Training Provider

Ngee Ann Polytechnic

Course Description

Machine Learning for Humans develops the cognitive capacities in participants on how to think like a data scientist.

  • Through the lens of data science, participants will gain a broad overview on the history of data, how to conduct a machine learning project from start to finish, and the practical application of various machine learning models.
  • The course breaks down complex data processes and machine learning techniques / models through the visual power of animation, motion graphics, and storytelling.
  • The course is presented and explained by experienced data scientists. They will share the concepts used when designing machine learning models for real-world problems.
  • Participants will complete scenario-based assessments to ensure that they understand and can apply the techniques taught in the modules. Participants are not required to install any software on their computer for this course.
Why You Should Apply

This course provides a broad overview of the knowledge, skills and mental models that data scientists use to frame problem statements, select machine learning models and evaluate those models.

 

Participants will gain an appreciation of the history of data, how to conduct a machine learning project from start to finish, and the practical application of various machine learning models.

Course Duration

24 hours (estimated)

As this is an asynchronous learning, it allows participants to learn flexibly on their own schedule, within the given timeframe. Lectures, readings, and other learning materials can be accessed and completed at any time (during the given period of access to the course).

Training Mode

Asynchronous e-Learning / Self-paced Online Course

What jobs will it pave the way to?

This introductory course provides a broad overview of machine learning and gives an idea of what data scientists and machine learning engineers work on.

 

Interested participants can pursue more in-depth learning via Data School, Specialist Diploma in Applied Generative AI or Specialist Diploma in Data Analytics to equip themselves with the skills for job roles such as AI Engineer, Machine Learning Engineer, Data Engineer, and more.
