Course overview 

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have long since found their way into large parts of the industry. Success has most recently been achieved in autonomous driving, medical image processing and material testing. In the future, AI will play an even greater role in numerous industries and scenarios. To remain ready for this future, companies need to understand the basics of AI and machine learning. 

Our training on machine learning offers a compact overview of the basics of machine learning theory and practice. You will receive the hands-on knowledge you need to integrate the enormous potential of artificial intelligence into your product portfolio and value chain. 

This training is very practice-oriented. Half of it consists of applied exercises on a single topic. You will learn the relevant methods and practices around machine learning while focusing on artificial neural networks, the basis for deep learning.

What is covered in this training?
