Google made a free course for the study of machine-learning techniques

In recent years, technology is becoming increasingly popular in various fields, including science, industry, business and even the entertainment industry. Specialists in this area are valued higher, however, due to the fact that these technologies are relatively young, to find really sensible professionals not so easy. Google is well aware. Perhaps this is what prompted the management of the Corporation to ensure that is completely free to publish online educational course on the study of machine-learning techniques.

In essence, machine learning or ML (Machine Learning), as it is called for brevity, is a class of artificial intelligence methods, aimed not at immediate solution to the problem, namely in the process of applying solutions to conditions similar tasks. Per ML frequently used tools of mathematical statistics, numerical methods, optimization methods, probability theory and graph theory. Technology of machine learning is full of various techniques and nuances, well-versed in which very few professionals. That is why it is critical to prepare qualified in the direction of professionals.

Google has made a public and free training course Machine Learning Crash Course (MLCC), which previously had only selected employees of the company, and third-party software developers. To take this course have already more than 18 000 people from dozens of countries. Now it becomes available to all, without exception, referred to . What gives us this course and how you can get access to it? Let's deal with it.

The MLCC Course covers the fundamental basis of machine learning, such as gradient methods and the classification models, and neural networks. The educational process takes place according to the method TensorFlow developed by Google. The student watches a short video, recorded with the participation of experts in the field of machine learning, read a small text explanation to the lessons, as well as doing special exercises and tasks, developed with the direct participation of instructors and engineers at Google. Unfortunately, the course is available only in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese and French. Russian is not among them.

The course includes 25 lessons, plus over 40 exercises. The total time of the course is 15 hours. You might think that this is too little. But this is not true. The main purpose of this gesture Google itself calls the attempt to reveal the potential of those people who are born to reach heights in the field of machine learning. A 15-hour course may push them in the right direction. To ignite in them the spark. Perhaps it is among these enthusiasts will be a person or even a few talented people who will revolutionize this field. Even if now they have no money for the passage of narrow training, now they will have the opportunity to start somewhere. Access to educational course can be obtained .
