Course Description

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it.

This course provides  a detailed overview of various algorithms and techniques, such as regression, classification, time series modeling, supervised and unsupervised learning, Natural Language Processing, etc. You will also use Python programming language to write code for implementing numerous algorithms in this certification training.

Amazing Training

Amazing course! Great breakdown on hard topics and elaborate course structure makes it easy to understand and follow the course. One of the best ML courses out there! Highly recommend


Esita Pathak

Good Course

Excellent, in depth introduction to machine learning. If you're really interested in machine learning, and want to get a very strong base, this one's for you. Also, you guys are always great and this one is no exception.


Disha Mehra

Great content

Content of this course is very well structured to understand basic approach for implementing any supervised Machine Learning problems. Would love an advanced course as well.


Akshat Kapoor

Amazing Course

This was my first attempt to learn Machine learning and I learnt a lot over this course. You guys are great in every aspects of providing online teaching. Thanks!


Salman Ali

Worthy training

It's worth one's time and money, joining a course on SparkAcademy; my experience was great here, I appreciate efforts you guys put in training.


Satendra Aggarwal

Good Course

Super clear explanations and good examples.


Kylian Vats

Best Training

Probably the best machine learning course out there. We learnt not only how to build machine learning models from scratch but even learnt a lot of basic programming as well. A lot of explanations were given for every topic.


Karan Malhotra

Amazing course

Prior to taking this course I had an applied knowledge of machine learning. After taking this course I understand, at a fundamental level, how the algorithms I have been using, work. These algorithms are now demystified and I now know how to write the algorithms from scratch - my two objectives in taking this course.
