Course Overview

The Exploring AI & Machine Learning for the Enterprise Overview is an introductory-level, lecture, demonstration and group discussion style course that explores the foundations of AI and how AI can be practically exploited in the modern business sense. This goal of this course is to provide students with a baseline understanding of core concepts that can serve as a platform of knowledge to follow up with more in-depth training and real-world practice.

 

This course introduces AI from a practical applied business perspective. Through engaging lecture and demonstrations presented by our expert facilitator, students will explore:

  • What AI is and what it isn’t
  • The different types and sub-fields of AI
  • The differences between Machine Learning, Expert Systems, and Neural Networks
  • The latest in applied theory
  • How AI is used in processing language, images, audio, and the web
  • The current generation of tools used in the marketplace
  • What’s next in applied AI for businesses

Need different skills or topics?  If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional AI, machine learning, data science, programming, Python/R and other related topics that may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your needs. Our team will collaborate with you to understand your needs and will target the course to focus on your specific learning objectives and goals.
