Do you want to build systems that learn from experience? Or exploit data to create simple predictive models of the world?

In the Machine Learning Fundamentals Certificate, part of the Data Science MicroMasters Program from EdX in partnership with University of California, San Diego - UC San DiegoX, you will learn a variety of supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms, and the theory behind those algorithms.

This course is part of a MicroMasters® Program

Using real-world case studies, you will learn how to classify images, identify salient topics in a corpus of documents, partition people according to personality profiles, and automatically capture the semantic structure of words and use it to categorize documents.

Armed with the knowledge from this course, you will be able to analyze many different types of data and to build descriptive and predictive models.

All programming examples and assignments will be in Python, using Jupyter notebooks.
