Computational Neuroscience Coursera

@machinelearnbot

This course provides an introduction to basic computational methods for understanding what nervous systems do and for determining how they function. We will explore the computational principles governing various aspects of vision, sensory-motor control, learning, and memory. Specific topics that will be covered include representation of information by spiking neurons, processing of information in neural networks, and algorithms for adaptation and learning. We will make use of Matlab/Octave/Python demonstrations and exercises to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course. The course is primarily aimed at third- or fourth-year undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals and distance learners interested in learning how the brain processes information.

Salesforce Einstein Discovery - Easy AI and Machine Learning

@machinelearnbot

Salesforce has done it again. They are taming the complexity of Artificial Intelligence, enabling you to make massive amounts of decisions and discover patterns in reams of data, all with clicks instead of code. This course is for the absolute beginner to Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Data Science. If you are feeling overwhelmed by either the tsunami of data that you are tasked with trying to make sense out of, or overwhelmed by the tsunami of media coverage around Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Data Science, and Machine Learning, I am here to share a competitive advantage. There is an AI and Data Discovery platform that can be constructed and configured with clicks instead of code.


Do online courses increase access to education?
