Machine learning is closely related to artificial intelligence (AI) technology, with the crucial difference being the focus on allowing computers to "learn" information on their own. This Nanodegree teaches you how to combine your mathematical and computer programming skills to create intelligent, self-learning, data-analyzing programs. This field is a logical expansion of computer science, software engineering, and AI.
This course will teach you the skills you need to become a machine learning engineer, software engineer, or data analyst. Work through the learning projects to understand massive data sets and how they influence predictive model programming. Complete each module at your own pace, and practice crucial machine learning techniques such as descriptive statistics analysis, customer segmentation, and recognition programming. Teach a smartcab to drive, create a predictive program that calculates the survival chances of Titanic passengers, and polish up your programming resume to bolster your employment chances at the conclusion of the Nanodegree.
