Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that focuses on the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to effectively perform a specific task without using explicit instructions. By applying machine learning techniques, computer systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.

The Higher Certificate in Information Systems (Machine Learning) is a career-focused qualification that is intensive but also broad. It provides you with the fundamental and technical knowledge as well as the applicable skill set in Databases, Python Programming, Statistical Thinking in Python, Supervised Learning with scikit-learn, Unsupervised Learning in Python, Linear Classifiers in Python, and Deep Learning in Python. You will also cover topics such as Computer Literacy, Program Design, Processing and Logic Concepts. Throughout the qualification, you will complete technical projects “challenging problems” that will make you well prepared and empowered for the world of work.
