Description

The Machine Learning Academy is a Capital Enterprise and University College London programme designed to provide the founders and senior personnel of London based tech startups and scale-ups a working knowledge and understanding of Machine Learning and how it can be incorporated successfully into their own company.

The programme is part funded by European Regional Development Fund and free to start-ups and scale-ups with a trading address in London.

The programme has been organised by John Spindler ( CEO of Capital Enterprise and Co-Founder of AI Seed) and Dr Alastair Moore who teaches Predictive Analytics at UCL and is Head of Analytics and Machine Learning at Mischon de Reya.

The programme lasts 6 weeks and takes places place on consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6-9pm at Idea London and kicks off on the 5th June. Each week will consists of a teaching workshop from Dr Alastair Moore and a presentation of a case study provided by a recognised expert in the field, followed by a Q&A and networking over drinks and refreshments.

Weeks 1—3 Machine Learning Techniques and AI Technologies

The first 3 weeks will delve into the major techniques and technologies under the umbrella of artificial intelligence. We will walk you through main types of machine learning (namely supervised, unsupervised learning), as well as neural networks and deep learning models. By the end, you should know the intuitions and business use cases of main algorithms under each type as well as key concepts of model training and optimisation strategies in developing a machine learning pipeline.

5th June: The basics - from data to models - Dr Alastair Moore and guest workshop presenters including Oli Hughes from Count the data analytics platform.

12th June: Designing predictive systems- End-to-End Machine Learning pipeline - Dr Alastair Moore and guest workshop presenter Darko Matovski and Max Sipos founders of "Time Series Prediction" engine Causalens.

19th June: Advanced methods- The Deep Learning landscape freom ANNs to GANs - Dr Alastair Moore and Professor Jim Dowling of KTH Institute of Technology and founder of Deep Learning engine Logical Clocks.

Weeks 4–-6 AI Organisational Transformation and Innovation

The last 3 weeks will prepare you to think about transforming a traditional sector business to adopt the power of artificial intelligence; or as an entrepreneur launching an AI business. During the lectures, you will gain hands-on experience from head/senior manager of data science/analytics on how to develop AI strategy, build and manage an in-house AI team, provide broad AI training, etc.
