To invite learners interested in honing their machine learning skills and expertise, AWS collaborated with Udacity for its AWS Machine Learning Engineer Scholarship Program.
This program aims to raise the level of machine learning expertise among all participants and to develop the next generation of ML leaders globally, emphasizing underrepresented groups. AWS works with professional groups spearheading efforts to broaden the skill and diversity of technical professions through its We Power Tech Program, including groups like Girls In Tech and the National Society of Black Engineers.
The principles of machine learning, the procedures involved in the process, reinforcement learning, generative AI, software engineering best practices for data science, and how to create your Python package are all covered in this course.
Udacity will offer incentives like badges for completing lessons so students can feel confident about their accomplishments. Developers of all experience levels are encouraged to take the foundations course to grasp the basics of machine learning.
After completing the AWS Machine Learning Foundations Course, students will take an exam from which the best performers will be chosen for a follow-up scholarship from the AWS Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree program, one of Udacity’s most popular and freshly updated Nanodegree programs.
Sunil PP, Lead- Education, Space, and Nonprofits, Amazon Web Services, said, “At AWS, we believe machine learning is among the most disruptive technologies we will encounter in our generation. Building a workforce that is skilled in ML will be crucial for India to leverage the transformational opportunity that ML presents.”
This is not the only opportunity being provided by AWS. It has also launched The Summer Cohort – AWS DeepRacer Student League 2022 with the support of the Ministry of Education and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), along with the similar aim of introducing ML to students.
