Machine Learning Course

Within the framework of KTUR, the partners have consolidated their competencies in the field of continuing education and propose application-oriented continuing education courses based on the current needs of the companies in the border region.

Machine Learning Course

Explore the world of Machine Learning and put the methods and concepts you have learned directly into use with practical exercises practical exercises on real-world data.

The aim of the introductory course is to familiarize yourself with the topics of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. You will acquire the theoretical basics and apply them directly through practical exercises on real data.You will learn how to process data and classical algorithms. We will use
Python, Scikit-learn and Kaggle.

The aim of the advanced course is to develop an understanding of deep learning and data visualisation. You will gain theoretical knowledge of the different components and architectures of neural networks and apply it to real-world
data via supervised and unsupervised approaches. We will use Python and Tensorflow.
