Expert in Data Science and AI – Implement Machine Learning into Practice

Certificate Programme


The recent wave of innovation in Artificial intelligence (AI) has enormous disruptive potential, but there is a decided shortage of professionals capable of harnessing the power of the latest modelling techniques and moving AI from the drawing board into real life.


The programme Certified Expert in Data Science and AI aims to give practitioners a solid foundation in data modelling, as well as an in-depth understanding of the latest AI methods and solutions (especially Deep Learning). The course covers the theoretical foundations of statistical modelling, the detailed analysis of neural models – along with associated machine learning procedures – and includes a technical introduction to and practice in Python programming using the general “Data Science Stack” (Numpy, SciPy, Pandas, Scikit-Learn), as well as TensorFlow for Deep Learning.

Your Advantages

  • Interactive “lab” sessions
  • Immediate application while implementing solutions (under guidance)
  • Individual support
  • Valuable networking within the circle of participants
  • Two Trainers who are specialists in different areas of expertise
  • Recognised certificate after passing the programming assignments

Programme content

The programme Certified Expert Data Science and Artificial Intelligence consists of two 5-day weeks.The course is held in English.

Data Science and Modelling Foundations (Week 1)

  • Foundational definitions, historical overview
  • Task settings, tasks of AI models
  • Data science pipeline
  • Visualization, representation and embedding
  • Clustering methods, anomaly detection models, classification methods
