Amazon India has launched the second edition of Machine Learning (ML) Summer School, that aims to provide students the opportunity to learn key ML technologies from scientists at Amazon making them ready for careers in science.
The course, conducted over four weekends in July, will provide students an opportunity to gain skills on key ML topics, including supervised learning, deep neural networks, sequential models, dimensionality reduction, unsupervised learning and two new modules, reinforcement learning and causal inference.
Participants will also have access to Amazon Research Days (ARD) conference, an engagement programme held in November every year. ARD helps Amazon, industry leaders and academic researchers in the field of AI around the world to connect
