SITizens Learning Credits


This 7-day course focuses on establishing the math and programming foundations for machine learning (ML) as well as introducing supervised learning techniques, a class of ML techniques based on learning by examples. This course is recommended to be taken as a continuation from Machine Learning I or as a standalone for attendees with the recommended foundation.

At the end of the 3-day course, you will be able to:

  1. Understand the essential math required to analyse ML algorithms
  2. Understand the essential python programming knowledge to implement ML algorithms
  3. Apply supervised learning techniques to solve sample problems using python
  4. Implement a basic ML application using python as part of an individual project

To aid companies in transforming their capabilities through their human capital, and support Singaporlole’s drive towards becoming a Smart Nation, this course is mapped to the Singapore Economic Development Board’s Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index:

  • Dimension 10 - Shop Floor Intelligence
  • Dimension 11 - Enterprise Intelligence
  • Dimension 12 - Facility intelligence
