Now Live: Udacity Machine Learning Scholarship Program for Microsoft Azure
Udacity machine learning course for Azure and AWS. Any student above 18 years can enroll in the Udacity Machine Learning Scholarship Program.
Online ML course providers like Udacity are showing the way forward for enterprises taking the next leap of faith with the new school of computing. In an encouraging piece of news, Microsoft has announced its new training collaboration with Udacity and Machine Learning Scholarship Programs for Azure.
Time to Sow Seeds of Machine Learning for Cloud Computing Applications
With growing investments in new AI capabilities, IT and DevOps teams are evaluated based on their data science skills, cybersecurity postures, neural networking power, and internet-blazing computing speed.
In the last 3 years, we have witnessed an explosive growth in the number of AI and Machine Learning training courses. As researchers continue to harvest their skills and talent around making machine learning simpler and cheaper, many tech behemoths (AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft, IBM, Salesforce, SAS) see online machine learning projects as suitable partners to meet challenging scenarios. One such scenario arises from the lack of credible talent and workforce who are trained in AI, machine learning, and data science specializations.
Currently, Udacity machine learning course is also available on AWS. Any student above the age of 18 years can enroll in the AWS Machine Learning Scholarship Program.
Edge, AI ML and Cognitive Intelligence
Udacity is currently conducting courses in these AI ML domains:
- Deep Learning
- 2D 3D Imaging
- Edge AI and Computing
- Computer Vision
- Deep Neural Networks(DNN) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN)
- Sci-kit learn and supervised learning
- NLP and Voice, Speech recognition, and so on.
Time to Revisit AI Machine Learning Benchmarks in 2020
Collectively, Udacity will help Microsoft trainers come out of the troubling waters within Machine Learning which is heavily doped with speculations. Udacity will deliver nanodegree programs developed with Microsoft to help professionals acquire very domain-specific skills and knowledge in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem.
Microsoft Azure is a Cloud Computing service created for intelligent deployment and management of Cloud infrastructures through a global network of data centers.
The Udacity-Microsoft Azure partnership also kicked off a Machine Learning Scholarship Program for Azure. Students enrolled with Udacity’s nanodegree programs can avail of the opportunity to earn a scholarship while working on Azure projects.
At the time of this announcement, Julia White, Corporate Vice President, Azure Marketing, Microsoft, said –
“AI is driving transformation across organizations and there is increased demand for data science skills. Through our collaboration with Udacity to offer low-code and advanced courses on Azure Machine Learning, we hope to expand data science expertise as experienced professionals will truly be invaluable resources to solving business problems.”
AI and Machine Learning Skills Keep Azure Contemporary
Microsoft Azure boasts of being an industry-leading solution for Cloud Computing teams. AI engineering teams prefer to use Azure to build mission-critical solutions using Azure Machine Learning, Azure Databricks and ONNX.
Azure Machine Learning, for instance, is a very simplified service created in Python, with Edge capabilities.
Why AI ML teams prefer Azure Machine Learning?
Azure ML has a flexible and easy-to-learn building interface. It also supports a large range of data sets and ML algorithms that empower app developers and data scientists with a wide range of productive experiences for building, training, and deploying machine learning models faster.
Microsoft needs Azue ML Trainers internally as well as in its Cloud service teams to support a wide array of demands put up by customers. If organizations that use Azure wish to fully capitalize on the Cloud Computing solutions, they would need trained ML professionals certified by an Azure-backed training platform. That’s why Udacity!
Udacity-trained professionals would help organizations to leverage Azure Machine Learning to its fullest potential with their specialized skills.
AI ML Training is the Future for Every IT Professional
The new UdacityMachine Learning Scholarship Program for Microsoft Azure represents the first of several programs from Udacity and to deliver training for Azure cloud services.
If you are an IT professional or a fresher, Udacity Machine Learning course is a foundational platform to start your journey into Microsoft Azure-specific executions.
The scholarship program includes a two-month-long ML training course on Azure with a low-code and DevOps experience. The candidates would be supported by a strong community of industry leaders, trainers and Open-sourced programmers registered with Udacity.
Azure Labs- World’s First AI ML Lab for Azure
Professionals will have the opportunity to be a part of the interactive Machine Learning course from Udacity. The testing center called Azure Labs is the world’s first interactive AI ML experiment hub where students work with live Azure environments directly within the Udacity classroom, resulting in superior student experience and enhanced learning.
Udacity will review all students who successfully complete the Foundations course and select top performers to receive a scholarship to the new machine learning Nanodegree program with Microsoft Azure.
Applications are currently open from June 10 to June 30.
