Live hands-on exercises · Theory only when necessary

You will learn the Concepts, the Intuition, and the Tools you need to implement intelligent systems capable of learning from data using production ready open source implementations of modern algorithms (Scikit-learn & Tensorflow).

2019 Machine Learning & AI Bootcamp

Synchronous access to instructors & peers via video conference and live chat.

We will assume that you are naturally intelligent but know close to nothing about Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 4-7pm pacific/7-10pm eastern via interactive zoom video conference.

No need to drive to a physical classroom.

Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow by Aurélien Géron. Copyright 2017 Aurélien Géron
Please use ebook so it would auto-update with any approved errata. The ebook may be available for free to Boeing employees via Safari Books Online or from your local public library.

You can rewind/repeat session recording soon after the live session ends so no worries if you miss a session. Instructor is available for help when you work in-between (before/after) our scheduled video conference sessions.


Fundamentals of Machine Learning and AI

Eight 3-hour video-conferences


Neural Networks and Deep Learning

Eight 3-hour video-conferences

  • What is Machine Learning? What problems does it try to solve? What are the main categories and fundamental concepts of Machine Learning systems?
  • The main steps in a typical Machine Learning project.
    Learning by fitting a model to data.
  • Optimizing a cost function.
  • Handling, cleaning, and preparing data.
  • Selecting and engineering features.
  • Selecting a model and tuning hyperparameters using cross-validation.
  • The main challenges of Machine Learning, in particular underfitting and overfitting (the bias/variance tradeoff).
  • Reducing the dimensionality of the training data to fight the curse of dimensionality.
  • The most common learning algorithms: Linear and Polynomial Regression, Logistic Regression, k-Nearest Neighbors, Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees, Random Forests, and Ensemble methods.

  • What are neural nets? What are they good for?
  • Building and training neural nets using TensorFlow.
  • The most important neural net architectures: feedforward neural nets, convolutional nets, recurrent nets, long short-term memory (LSTM) nets, and autoencoders.
  • Techniques for training deep neural nets.
  • Scaling neural networks for huge datasets.
  • Reinforcement learning.
  • Your commitment

    • Six hours of video-conference session every week. Use a headset, talk & share screen, work hands-on to solve problems.
    • Expect to spend about the same amount of time on your own doing labs and guided self-study using the Cloud Genius workstation.
    • Total of sixteen days of 3-hour video-conference sessions over 8 weeks.

  • You can access video recording of every session even if you miss a live session

    • So you can rewind/repeat until you nail the concept. Or review if you miss a live session.

  • Instructor dedicated to your success

    • You can chat with instructor any time and meet 1×1 via video or share screen if needed.
    • We believe you really want to learn so we treat you like professionals not college kids.

We require hands-on work. We operate in a blended learning environment where you will work in the sessions synchronously with the experts in scheduled sessions while doing additional real world exercises on your own using materials available here and collaborate asynchronously via Slack chat and video conferencing sessions as needed.
