Machine Learning Engineers are key to future decision-making in any data-driven company.
Our support team have been there and done that - they are experienced practitioners of data science in various fields such as Utilities, Retail and Financial Services; with a solid academic background.
The course is built around solving actual problems whilst learning about the latest machine learning techniques.
EXPLORE prides itself on the practicality of the course. Participants must be able to apply the skills/knowledge that they acquired in your everyday job to impact their business.
Participants will have extended access to the material that are covered in the course, allowing them to revisit the techniques to keep it fresh in their mind.
Students will master the model building process and the various machine learning algorithms to use when predicting or classifying. For those not born programmers, there will be material to cover the basics of programming in python.Download Full Syllabus
Students will learn to code in python. From basic syntax to complex logic statements and functions. They will also cover utilising external libraries to make programming simpler.
We take teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect with topics on a profound level. With experience in the field and the classroom, our data science instructors are unmatched. Simply put: students learn from the best.
Jaco is a Lead Data Scientist in the EXPLORE Data Science Academy. He has spent the bulk of his career on scientific and industrial research and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on mathematical modelling and optimisation.
Jason holds a Master's in Physics and loves to explore the way the universe works. He's recently found a home in data science, and now likes to build self-driving cars for fun. He currently works in the content creation side of the academy, working towards bringing Data Science to all parts of South Africa.
Dewald is an actuary and senior data scientist. He was one of the first brave souls to join the EXPLORE ship in 2016. He is managing EXPLORE's learning platform, Athena, and leading the corporate training - 2/3 day bootcamps to upskill employees.
Four megatrends are fundamentally changing the shape of our world:
All of these things above mean that it’s becoming easier and quicker to produce models that can analyze bigger/more complex data and deliver more accurate results – even on a very large scale. By building prediction models a business has a better chance of identifying profitable opportunities – or avoiding unknown risks.
