Machine Learning for Business Managers


Given the current state of advancing in technology and its absorption in the business it is clear that next few years will witness far reaching transformations in every area. Yesteryear’s bleeding edge technologies such as SMAC and Digital are now considered as given. We expect spectacular changes in our lives and in businesses with the advent of IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Robotics. This course addresses issues relating to AI/ML and their impact on businesses.

Machine learning being at the core artificial intelligence we commence with ML concepts and the hands-on practicals. Understanding and solving business problems will be the key here. We will build ML models using various datasets. Having gotten grip of ML we move into the field of AI to discuss some of the implementations and business impact.

This course aims at getting the first-hand experience in Machine Learning using cloud based tools as well as desktop tools. Focus will be on understanding concepts and principles. Although the tools are not central to the learning they will aid in this process of clarifying basics. There will be multiple hands-on exercises. Concepts and usability of Machine Learning, Deep Learning in business will be discussed.
