In simple terms, Machine learning (ML) is the fusion of computer science and statistics in computer algorithms, and has become a key asset in today's technology. From shopper recommender systems to self-driving cars, ML has enabled intelligent solutions that go beyond the capabilities of traditional technological implementations.

ML is a concept that is most effectively learned by doing. The lessons will follow an active learning approach that includes group activities and gamified individual quizzes during the lessons. There will be a simple hands-on session at the end to expose attendees to the technicalities of ML implementations.

At the end of the 1.5-day course, you will be able to:

1. Understand the fundamental principles of ML
2. Appreciate the differences between the common types of ML like supervised and unsupervised learning
3. Know how ML is used in various applications like face detection and algorithmic trading
4. Use an online ML learning environment to solve some interesting problems
