Course Description

So what is all this AI fuss about? Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Predictive Analytics -- what is the reality behind the hype? How do machines actually learn and what are their limits? How can we use Machine Learning to recognize written digits, predict customer churn and find structure in Elon Musk's tweets? All this -- and much more -- is the topic of this course, which will introduce you to the world of AI in a gentle, but firm and very practical manner.

What do other learners have to say?

I've used other sites—Coursera, Udacity, things like that—but DataCamp's been the one that I've stuck with.
