ML Foundations 1 – February 4, 2021

February 4, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) increase in popularity, so does the public conversation — a mixture of information, misinformation, stories and speculation. This can make it difficult to build a knowledge base for these powerful tools.

Get a basic, high-level understanding of what’s important and relevant at Machine Learning Foundations 1.

What will I learn?

Build a foundational knowledge about AI & ML, including:

  • The definitions of AI, ML and data science, and how they all fit together
  • What automation is and where it’s effective
  • How a company arrives at an AI solution — whether you build it yourself, buy it from another company, or partner with an external expert — and the pros and cons of each

Walking through real-world examples of AI & ML applications, you will learn:

  • Where AI creates business value and competitive advantage
  • How to properly construct an ML question related to business problems and objectives
  • How to identify red flags as you are scoping or executing your AI project
  • How ML works and your role in making it work

In addition, contextual information will inform your view of AI & ML:

  • The evolution of AI and innovation
  • Ethical and societal considerations around the application of AI

Who should take this class?

You should take this class if:

  • You are interested in but don’t understand AI & ML
  • You want to tap into the language and have productive conversations around AI & ML
  • You and your team want a common starting point and vocabulary
  • You are a technical person who wants to understand the business role of AI & ML
  • You are a business user or manager who wants to understand the technical role of AI & ML

Class information

This class is $250 CDN and includes 3 hours of facilitated instruction and 3 hours of self-directed online learning.

This is the first step in your AI learning journey, which will set you up for a deeper understanding of more complex concepts and tools. Following the ML Foundations 1 class, you will be able to move onto:

  • The ML Foundations 2 class for a closer look at technical concepts
  • The AI Strategy & Management course to gain the knowledge, skills and tools you need as a business leader as you look to adopt AI
