Have you ever looked a long list of machine learning algorithms and wondered where to get started? And how to apply them to your problem in energy, agriculture, water or any other clean technology sector?
If that sounds like you, sign up here for our online course on getting started with machine learning in clean technology. We'll talk about the basic concepts in machine learning, discuss applications in the clean technology sector, identify the algorithms that are most commonly applied to problems in water, agriculture, energy and other clean tech sectors and get started using these algorithms. Since we believe that the best learning comes when we solve real-world problems, our hands-on problem will be building a machine learning model to understand and identify different land uses using existing software.
