On Sunday, Amazon India has announced the launch of an integrated learning program for students. It is meant for learning applied Machine Learning (ML) skills and to make them industry-ready for careers in the new technology.
To address the growing demand for talent with this skill set across various industries and to help train students in ML, the ML Summer School program has been introduced.
The fundamental concepts in ML will be included in the curriculum of ML Summer School. The fundamental concepts will be linked to practical industry applications through an immersive 3-day course.
The first-hand experience on how advanced ML techniques such as Probabilistic Graphical Models and Deep Learning can be leveraged to solve specific business problems in the e-commerce domain will be provided to students. These skills include product recommendations, search ranking, demand forecasting, catalog quality, and online advertising.
This program is open for engineering students in their pre-final/final year of Bachelors’s, Masters’s, or Ph.D. studies across select tech campuses in 2021.
Interested students are free to apply online at amazonmlsummerschoolindia.splashthat.com. Access to the Amazon Research Days (ARD) conference will also be given to the participants. Here participants can learn about technology trends in the industry through presentations from renowned ML leaders around the world. From select tech campuses in India, a batch of students will be allowed to engage through virtual classroom tutorials, followed by interactive Q&A sessions with scientists at Amazon.
The program can act as a refresher course for students with prior exposure to certain areas of ML. It will also provide an additional practical perspective on ML applications in the industry.
