The third edition of the Machine Learning (ML) Summer School has been announced by Amazon India. It is an immersive programme designed to give students the chance to study crucial ML technologies from Scientists at Amazon and prepare them for a career in machine learning. The registration for the program is open till September 6 and the program commences on September 16.
Eight modules will be covered over four weekends in September as part of the free educational programme, giving participants the chance to learn about machine learning challenges. The emphasis is on building a solid foundation in both theoretical ideas and real-world applications using supervised learning, deep neural networks, probabilistic graphical models, dimensionality reduction, and unsupervised learning.
A novel application-focused learning strategy is provided by Amazon’s ML Summer School, which departs from traditional approaches that place an emphasis on theory. Additionally, Amazon’s ML Summer School distinguishes out because it combines modern science courses at universities with contemporary business practices, emphasizes hands-on learning, and accepts students from a variety of ML backgrounds.
All engineering students enrolled in Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD programmes from any accredited institution in India who expect to graduate in 2024 or 2025 are eligible to attend the ML Summer School. All qualified students will be asked to complete an online test covering principles of arithmetic and machine learning in areas including probability, statistics, and linear algebra. The top 3000 students will then be accepted for the ML Summer School, where they will study eight modules live over the course of four weekends, with live Q&A sessions with Amazon scientists following each session.
The Amazon ML Summer School has advanced quickly and shown extraordinary progress since its pilot in 2021. Over 3500 students participated in the first programme, with the top 300+ students receiving invitations to attend. In 2022, the programme was enlarged based on its prior success, and over 17,500 engineering students from all around India registered. Out of these, 2880 pupils were chosen to participate in the programme. The class size will increase this year as it is being expanded to include engineering students registered in any accredited institute in India.
