Machine learning is the future of automation. Millions of tasks performed by humans on a daily basis will be eventually replaced by neural networks trained. Even now, machine learning algorithms shape your life. The job market is shifting to accommodate this new technology, and those who are capable of programming their own networks (or integrating with existing ones) are in high demand. There has never been a better time to dive into machine learning.
"Machine learning" and "data science" - two terms that might sound mysterious to someone who has never dealt with these processes before. However, if you have heard about machine learning before, you probably know that it is a process that aims to change the very fundaments of how our society is built... Sounds dramatic? Well, perhaps, but I do have a strong case for that - you'll find it in my machine learning course! Why Choose this Machine Learning Course? Machine learning, as a concept, is indeed a very interesting one.
Computer Science students who wish to specialize in data-science-focused careers need to take courses that cover the core areas of data science including algorithms, machine learning, data visualization, data management, and societal implications of data science. To achieve this goal, UW CSE has a new transcriptable option in Data Science to be added to the Computer Science major; students who complete all of the required coursework will have the option listed on their transcript upon graduation. This specialization will ensure that computer science students interested in data-science-related careers get the broad and deep education they need and that they obtain a strong foundation in this fast-growing field.
