Course description

Machine Learning

Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from University of California, Berkeley

Companies using machine learning to optimize business processes and decision-making have distinct advantages over those that aren’t. By wielding machine learning technology to make business objectives more predictive and prescriptive, data-driven enterprises are redefining how to create and measure value. With the development of free, open-source machine learning and artificial intelligence tools, it’s never been easier for companies of all sizes to harness the power of data.

Effectively integrating machine learning applications into your business requires a practical understanding of its models. The Machine Learning online short course from the UC Berkeley School of Information (I School) aims to equip your workforce with the skills to understand the impact of machine learning and aptly communicate its integration. Your employees will learn to analyze the models, techniques, and ethical ramifications of machine learning applications, and present a business case for utilizing it in your organization.
