Why study AI Programming with Python

Demand for employees with AI skills is skyrocketing, and Python is one of the most widely used languages in artificial intelligence (AI). According to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2018 Future of Jobs report, an additional 133 million AI related jobs will be created by 2022. There’s no better time than now to upskill and future-proof your career. Our AI Programming with Python course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to build your own AI application in three months. Develop the confidence to advance in your career in this exciting field, or take your new found skills in technical programming and apply them within your existing workplace.


Who this course is for

Our AI Programming with Python course is ideal for IT specialists or professionals with a high level of awareness within your domain and are familiar with data, statistics, and programming. You may either be new or have little experience in artificial intelligence.

What you'll learn
  • An introduction to Python
  • NumPy
  • Pandas, and Matplotlib
  • Linear algebra essentials
  • Calculus essentials
  • Neural networks
How does it work

During this course, you will use your newly acquired Python coding skills to complete two projects.

In the first project, you’ll classify images using a trained image finder. In your second project, you’ll get to train your own deep learning model on a dataset of images. After completing this course, you’ll walk away with your own AI application and an RMIT credential which can be validated, recognised, and shared on social media platforms.
