NSM Nodal Centres for Training in HPC and AI, along with CDAC, are organizing a 7-week course on Machine Learning. This is planned from March 2021 to April 2021, and is open to everyone.
An end of course examination will be conducted online. Top performers will be given Book Prizes The successful candidates will be awarded a certificate with grades. Others will be given certificates of participation.
The objective of this course is to teach participants the basic concepts of machine learning
The event is scheduled online. E-meeting details will be mailed to the participants at the e-mail id filled in the registration form. Additional guest lectures by experts from industry partners will also be conducted.
