Drag and Drop Machine Learning, Monday, March 26

AIM Infotec in conjunction with AIM Interface School is proud to provide instructor Gordon Summers, machine learning expert from Contemporary Analysis.

Drag and Drop Machine Learning is a one-day, instructor-led training to teach machine learning using tools on the market which leverage drag and drop interfaces instead of code based machine learning.

This course will use one of those tools, Dataiku, in order to learn about the core concepts of machine learning. While there will be some specific Dataiku training around navigation, the goal of the training is to teach setting up a model, executing machine learning, and analyzing the results.

The class will be interactive with opportunities to build what is being demonstrated. Participants are expected to provide their own equipment and be able to install the software. The Dataiku version we will use is the “community” version with no cost to use.

Fee: The course can be purchased as a stand-alone training for $700 per person or bundled with the full Infotec registration for $850 per person.  Prices increase $100 after Feb. 20.
