NACME Google Applied Machine Learning Intensive (AMLI) Summer 2021 Bootcamp

The goal of the NACME-Google AMLI Summer Bootcamp is to provide students with an introduction to computer science content to be qualified for positions as entry-level Machine Learning Specialists. Specifically, to prepare talent to understand how to apply statistics and machine learning to solve real-world data science problems. The bootcamp aims to expose URM students to advanced concepts in artificial intelligence/machine learning using Google Education’s open-sourced curriculum. The AMLI curriculum will enable NACME partner institutions to give students the foundation they need to work with large datasets and solve real-world problems.

As machine learning (ML) becomes a powerful tool across industries — from healthcare and retail to investment banking and insurance — there is a growing need for a workforce that understands how to apply ML strategically and use ML models to collaborate with data scientists and engineers for maximum business impact. The 8-week machine learning curriculum gives students the strong computer science foundation they need to work with large datasets and solve real-world problems. Classroom time is dedicated to hands-on learning, with faculty-supported, collaborative project work. Students learn actively outside of class, with instruction and new concepts delivered remotely.
