Learn the skill set behind the world’s most powerful AI.

Machine learning is the science that powers search engines, recommendation systems in streaming apps, social media feeds, and more. It’s a complex and constantly evolving field, but essentially it boils down to this: machine learning is the study of how computer systems can evolve and improve independently based on experience. This process relies on immense quantities of data, which is why machine learning is often considered a subset of data science. Considering the power of data in today’s market, it’s no surprise that global businesses are practically falling over each other to hire individuals with machine learning expertise.

Now working as a Data Product Analyst at YipitData
"I can't believe the amount of knowledge and skills I've acquired during the program. I worked hard on the exercises and projects not to get good grades, but because I was inspired and eager to dive into the materials. I'm confident that the data driven skills I learned will open up lots of opportunities that I didn't think of before."

Emily Kruse
McIntire School of Commerce Class of 2022

The program exceeded my expectations for any sort of classroom experience. We were learning extremely relevant and cutting edge information, but without using textbooks or exams! It was extremely hands on and fast-pasted helping me develop as a potential employee and student.

Harish Vatsen
London School of Economics Class of 2021

The intensive classes, combined with the enriching internship, truly allowed me to push my boundaries and learn as much as possible within such a short period of time. As someone who had close to zero experience in coding or programming, this accelerated course gave me a solid foundation in data science and certainly set me up for future forays into the field.

Claire Adair
Princeton Class of 2019

Thanks to our professor and TA, whose data science expertise was matched both by pedagogical ability and engagement, my classmates and I have not only strengthened our coding skills, but earned a contextual understanding of how big data analysis can inform the guidance of major systems and reveal otherwise overlooked patterns.

Kyle Mettler
University of Notre Dame Class of 2021

The program is geared toward teaching a breadth of practical, industry-relevant tools, and I believe I will apply the skills I’ve learned over the past weeks for many years to come. The unwavering support of the teaching team allowed me to learn much faster than I expected.

Yash Tekriwal
University of Virginia Class of 2018

The program defined my current career prospects. After completing the course I’m a couple of steps further in the search for meaning through data. What their data driven courses teach is more than just technical skills, it's a way of thinking. Being embedded in a course environment like this one helped me broaden my horizons intellectually.
