Machine learning is the process of teaching computers how to learn from data to make decisions or predictions without being explicitly programmed to do so. Students will learn about Python's Numpy, Tensorflow, Keras, and Pandas libraries applied to the latest problems in computer vision, natural language processing, recommender systems, and more.

Machine Learning details

You’ll learn programming in C# and developing interactive mixed reality projects in Unity3D, the world's leading real-time game engine. While AR/VR is most popularly known for gaming and entertainment, it's also been adopted outside the tech sector as well, including in the medical, auto, and construction industries. Learn C#, Unity 3D, and concepts including UI design, interaction design, working with 3D assets, animation, and audio to develop interactive mixed-reality experiences.

Explore Augumented & Virtual Reality

You’ll learn the full capability of the Linux Kernel API by reproducing C standard library functions and command-line tools as well as diving deep into the fundamentals of network communication, parallel programming, and advanced data structures and algorithms. During the last trimester of this specialization, you will develop your own cryptocurrency by building the entire Blockchain logic and cryptography in C.

Learn more about the Low Level & Algorithms program

You'll advance the web development principles and skills introduced in the first 3 sprints of the program. You'll learn advanced skills in front-end and back-end development including mastering frameworks that are in high demand throughout the industry. Demystify front-end and back-end development with emphasis on cache, authentication, NoSQL, React, responsive design, and accessibility.

Discover Full-Stack Web Development

Front-end web development defines how we use our computers every day. The work of front-end developers is what helps technology be usable to the average person, and companies with the best, most stable, and most usable sites are the most popular on the web.
