Description

If you are like me – finding it difficult to read thick manuals with formulae, but still very much interested in modern technologies and their applications, then this course is for you.

You will learn about big data, Internet of Things (IoT), data science, big data technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) algorithms, neural networks, and why this could be relevant to you even if you don’t have technology or data science background. Please note that this is NOT TECHNICAL TRAINING and it does NOT teach Coding/Development or Statistics.

The course includes the interviews with industry experts that cover  big data developments in Real Estate, Logistics & Transportation and Healthcare industries.  You will learn how machine learning is used to predict engine failures, how artificial intelligence is used in anti-ageing, cancer treatment and clinical diagnosis, you will find out what technology is used in managing smart buildings and smart cities including Hudson Yards in New York.  We have got fantastic guest speakers who are the experts in their areas:

– WAEL ELRIFAI – Global VP of Solution Engineering – Big Data, IoT & AI at Hitachi Vantara with over 15 years of experience in the field of machine learning and IoT. Wael is also a Co-Authour of the book “The Future of IoT”.

– ED GODBER – Healthcare Strategist with over 20 years of experience in Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and start-ups specialising in Artificial Intelligence.

– YULIA PAK – Real Estate and Portfolio Strategy Consultant with over 12 years of experience in Commercial Real Estate advisory, currently working with clients who deploy IoT technologies to improve management of their real estate portfolio.

Hope you will enjoy the course and let me know in the comments of each section how I can improve the course!
