Why Take This Course

Machine learning is expected to transform virtually every industry and customer experience we know today. However, there is a shortage of trained and experienced ML developers. Of 23 million developers worldwide, only 1.3% (300,000) have AI/ML expertise, and by 2022 it is predicted there will be 58 million AI/ML jobs, further deepening this talent shortage.

Upon completion of the course, learners will have a strong foundation in object-oriented programming and an introduction to key AWS machine learning technologies, which is a great start on the path towards becoming a Machine Learning Engineer.
