IBM Watson’s Chief Architect, Paul Taylor, said it best: “AI and Data Science require new skills that are in high demand and ultimately impact all industries, organisations and modern smart systems.” He’s right, too. Data Science is evolving, and employers are putting a premium on machine learning experience. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates 200,000 data scientist job openings in 2019, with salary benchmarks at around $147,000. A working knowledge of AI isn’t a bonus anymore – it’s almost a necessity.
In this course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of machine learning from some of Australia’s leading industry experts, build basic algorithms, run pipelines and deploy your solutions to the cloud. Everything you need for a brave new world.
Machine Learning For Data Science was designed with cutting-edge content from Silicon Valley disruptor Udacity, then multiplied with the credibility of RMIT through localised mentors with the best in industry. It’s a technical, job-ready program. You’ll need to be comfortable with wrangling data in Python and SQL, and have some experience with inferential statistics and data visualization.
