This chapter is a comprehensive introduction to data science. We'll start by learning how to explore your data and visualise it, through introducing the industry stardard tools for doing so.
Modelling data is a key part of data science, and a key tool for doing this is machine learning (ML). There will be a deep focus on being practical - actually building every algorithm you learn and knowing how and when to apply it. We’ll begin with an introduction to the basic machine learning problems and the different types of ML. In successive sessions, you'll learn the theory behind a particular algorithm before implementing it and using it on a real dataset.
In this unit, we'll also introduce deep learning - a class of models for representing more complex relationships withing data, especially unstructured data like images.
Module 1 - Exploratory data analysis
Module 2 - Introduction to machine learning
What is ML?
When (NOT) to use ML?
Validation and testing
Hyperparameters, grid search and K-fold cross validation

GPUs for PyTorch
Module 2 - Running experiments
AWS Sagemaker for training
Module 3 - Pretrained models
Module 4 - Building cloud solutions
AWS Sagemaker for deployment
AWS API Gateway
Demo building an end-to-end cloud solution
As the AI systems of more companies mature, there becomes a need for an emerging role that crosses ML engineering with DevOps - ML Operations Engineer, or MLOps Engineer for short. This role is responsible for building, deploying and maintaining ML infrastructure that other teams work with.
Module 1 - Deployment
Testing using PyTest
Building an API
Module 2 - Automated deployment, CI/CD and scaling
GitHub Actions for CI/Cd
Module 3 - Monitoring & continuous training (CT)
AWS Sagemaker for monitoring
"By the time your graduate, you'll know everything a data scientist or machine learning engineer will need to have an impact in the workplace."
Evgeny Dyshlyuk - Research Scientist, Imperial College London
Data science and machine learning are about understanding how data can be used to make key business decisions and automate processes. Given the huge amounts of data being collected in the digital age, companies across all fields want to utilise their data to inform their decisions and improve operational efficiency. The demand for data scientists has tripled over the past 5 years. The number of machine learning engineer positions on Indeed quadrupled between 2015 and 2018.
This course was created with the intention of helping meet that demand. Most of our students have a STEM background and are required to have a basic understanding of linear algebra, statistics and coding. The 15 minute quiz you complete during the application process will assess this and will give you access to precourse material to fill in any gaps in knowledge you may have.
If you are love solving problems across different fields using data and are looking to get hired doing this, you have come to the right place.
Throughout the programme, you will build a portfolio of projects that will showcase your practical skills. But we know there's more to getting hired than technical knowledge.
At the start of the programme you will have a consultation with one of our coaches to help figure out the optimal career for you. As you progress in your learning, our career coaches will help you polish your CV, hold mock interviews, audit your LinkedIn and keep you accountable in your job search process.
You will be recommended to exclusive roles with our hiring partners and be matched with an industry mentor to make sure you are ready for the workplace.
Our goal is for you to feel 100% confident going into any hiring process.
We connect our students to world class AI industry mentors. They’ll lecture technical topics in class, answer questions and share informal career advice in scheduled office hours.
Dedicated support means that on top of the 12 hours in class per week, you’ll have scheduled group office hours weekly, support through Slack and 1-on-1 sessions available to book.
Don’t waste a second. Learn from the comfort of your own home. Reach instructors instantly. Be ready with just an internet connection and your laptop.
Daniel started out as an analyst over 10 years ago now. He quickly transitioned into data science, taking on various roles and honing his skills for 4 years.
He has since grown a passion for teaching, and has been delivering data science education for the past 3 years.
Nihir is a talented NLP specialist, starting his journey many years ago with his bachelors in Computer Science and masters in Data Processing.
He is currently pursuing his PhD in Natural Language Processing at Imperial College London, in
Dr Lucia Specia's Multimodal AI lab.
