Foundations for Machine Learning: Mini Bootcamp
LINEAR ALGEBRA I CALCULUS I STATISTICS I DATA STRUCTURES I
Consists of 14-part LIVE training modules, this course provides a comprehensive overview of all of the subjects --across mathematics, statistics, and computer science --that underlie contemporary machine learning approaches, including deep learning and other artificial intelligence techniques.
If you use high-level software libraries (e.g., scikit-learn, Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch) to train or deploy machine learning algorithms, and would like now to understand the fundamentals underlying the abstractions, enabling you to expand your capabilities.

Programming: All code demos will be in Python, so experience with it or another object-oriented programming language would be helpful for following along with the code examples.
Mathematics: Familiarity with secondary school-level mathematics will make the class easier to follow along with. If you are comfortable dealing with quantitative information -- such as understanding charts and rearranging simple equations -- then you should be well prepared to follow along with all the mathematics.
