The Hellenic American Lifelong Learning Center in cooperation with Ismion Inc. offers a new series of courses and workshops on data science and machine learning, two specializations of computer science that have gained great popularity over the last few years. Data science includes Big Data, the hottest trend in the tech industry now and machine learning is ubiquitous: underlies stock trading bots, Google’s search results and recommendations, autonomous cars, digital assistants like Cortana and Siri and Amazon’s cashier-free stores. It is also used successfully in CRM for automated customer segmentation and for generating effective acquisition and retention campaigns.
MLTrain™ is an educational endeavor of "Ismion Inc." focusing on machine-learning-in-practice by leveraging the content of recent academic research to meet the needs of industrial applications. MLTrain offers courses at different levels of detail, focusing on varying audiences, from developers to business analysts and executives. It is our tenet that effective machine learning is done by understanding the potential, the effects and the practical implications of state-of-the art algorithms, and implement them using toolsets that are open and adopted by industry giants like Google and Amazon.
MLTrain is based in Atlanta US and offers its services worldwide with a recent record of courses and workshops in the US, Australia and South Africa.
