The first AI unit- Introduction to machine learning: Image classification enables students to learn about the basics of machine learning and create their own apps that implement these concepts through image classification. It is aimed at College and University students and uses an MIT extension called the LookExtension that adds object recognition using a neural network to a mobile App.

The unit comprises two lessons. In the first students get a basic understanding of how machine learning for image classification works, using images of cats as an example, then  they go through the guided tutorial on Google’s Teachable Machine. If you are not familiar with this resource see our account Google’s Teachable Machine – What it really signifies for how it works and a discussion of what it means. In the second lesson students build their own machine learning app, Whatisit which has been trained for 999 different classes. They then test its capabilities by photographing new objects and using the LookExtension’s Classify button. Until recently Machine Learning has been an elite pursuit – done at postgraduate or post doctoral level. Now new tools allow those without such a background to join in.


With knowledge in IoT becoming a necessary skillset for data scientists, the Certification Program is ideal for professionals and freshers looking to enter the field of automated products and communication interfaces. Focusing on data capture, storage and data analytics, embedded electronics and client-server architecture, the course guides students to be adept at carving practical applications for modern day industries.
