Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) is fast becoming a crucial part of business processes and is touted to be the key to successful digital transformation. However, these phrases remain buzzwords to many business executives. Without a basic understanding of AI/ML, the participation of these key personnel will be limited, and such digital transformations may fall short.

This 2-day course is for business / non-technical managers or executives and seeks to introduce and demystify these machine learning concepts. The objective of this course is to equip business managers and executives with the foresight and relevant technical grounding to transform their businesses digitally.
