Event description

Description

This course was developed by the Vector Institute in partnership with Communitech Academy.

In this two-day AI bootcamp, you’ll get a mix of in-class training, role playing and experiential exercises, interactions with AI subject matter experts and coaching during breakout sessions.

What you’ll learn

This three-part, high-level overview of the field of AI begins with an orientation on terms and historical context so you can grasp the current state of the field, answering the question, “What is machine learning?”

Next is a more technical perspective to help you understand what machine learning is and what common types of machine learning are, while considering a variety of applications and use cases.

Lastly, we’ll walk through the general machine learning process and it how can benefit a business. You'll be asked to apply your new knowledge in the context of your own business goals. We’ll wrap up with a discussion on AI ethics.

After this bootcamp, you will be able to:

- Differentiate between various types of AI learning approaches
