About the course

Machine learning is all around us. Every day, it seems like some new device is now "smart". How do machines know how to do all of these different tasks? It isn’t magic, although it does feel that way.

In this course, you’ll learn the basics of machine learning, giving you an overview of what machine learning is, and equally important, what machine learning is not. We’ll discuss some of the popular uses for machine learning today and what it promises for the future. You’ll even learn a bit about how you learn in the process!
