Virtual Machine Learning School For Business Schools: Registrations are Open!

Posted by

At BigML, we know that Machine Learning is transforming all kinds of industries and education is key to make this transformation a reality. This is the main reason why we launched the BigML Education Program back in 2016 to spread the word and help democratize Machine Learning. Since then, more than 700 universities have been regularly teaching Machine Learning with BigML in their classrooms. To keep actively contributing to this wave of change in academia, BigML is organizing a one-day online event that will be held on February 17, 2021: our First International School on Teaching Machine Learning in Business Schools presented by educators from Business Schools.

The conference will take place in a safe and virtual environment, and it is ideal for Machine Learning professors, business professionals, industry practitioners, and advanced undergraduates that wish to enroll in an MBA course to hone their data-driven business skills. This event will cover the different ways professors bring Machine Learning into the classrooms, how to best teach the next generation of business leaders what Machine Learning is, how to practically use it to optimize business processes, and the level of maturity in Machine Learning they need to reach to make data-driven decisions on a daily basis. We invite you to join our virtual Machine Learning School and meet these innovative professors that are at the forefront of the changing business education landscape.

This crash course is organized by BigML in collaboration with several Universities and Business Schools such as Northeastern University in Silicon Valley (USA), the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom, Nyenrode Business University in The Netherlands, Prague University of Economics and Business in the Czech Republic, IE Business School, ESADE Business School, ICADE Business School, and EOI Business School in Spain, among others.


The event will be held virtually, for you to get acquainted with Machine Learning in the comfort of your home or office. All lectures will be delivered via live webinars from different parts of the world and you will also have the opportunity to interact with our presenters LIVE


1-day event: February 17, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM CET.
