  • A basic understanding matrix vector operations and notation
  • A basic knowledge of statistics
  • Basic command line operations

All code will be written in Python with the use of the following libraries:

  • Pandas/NumPy are the libraries for matrix calculations and data frame operations. We strongly recommend to browse through the available tutorials for these packages, for instance, the official one
  • Scikit-learn
  • Matplotlib

A workstation with the following capabilities:

  • A web browser (Chrome/Firefox)
  • Internet connection
  • A firewall allowing outgoing connections on TCP ports 80 and 443

The following developer utilities should be installed:

  • Anaconda
  • Jupyter Notebook (will be installed using Anaconda)

All these libraries will be installed using Anaconda

Our customers

Here is what our customers say about us
Biggest value of the course? Combination of conceptual and practical contents. Showing the state-of-the art achievements and hence developing a feeling what can be achieved with DNN
What did you like most at the training?
Both high level and the details of machine learning
I enjoyed the class and learned a lot even though there was so much content jammed into a very small time. The most enjoyable was deep neural nets and seeing some of the largest example. The most valuable thing professionally will probably be the classification clustering that I have learned K-NN probably
Great experience! Very knowledgeable and friendly trainers. Biggest value of the course - practical examples/issues the trainers provided based on their experience
