If machine learning sounds a little highbrow, it’s not: artificial intelligence has been steadily making its way into our everyday lives for a while now. And with The Robotics & Machine Learning of Self-Driving Cars course, you’ll learn the ropes of this exciting new tech frontier.

This course includes 82 lectures and 20 hours of content you can access 24/7. First, you’ll get started with Python, a major building block coding language for AI, and discuss linear regression, artificial neural networks and Support Vector Machine (SVM). This is everything you need before you start applying machine learning concepts to robotics.

Self-driving cars have become a target for some of the biggest tech companies in the world. Google’s Waymo has been successfully tested in extreme conditions and on major public roads. Tesla promises a coast-to-coast autopilot demo by the end of this year, while General Motors plans to deploy a rideshare environment by 2018. Most major automobile manufacturers have announced plans to offer self-driving functionality after 2020, including Hyundai, Volvo, BMW, Ford, and Honda.

 

Think of it like this: if the average developer makes upwards of six figures a year, how much does a rare developer in an already lucrative field make? In short: if it’s the money you’re looking for, it’s money you’ll get when you’ve learned the AI and ML behind self-driving cars.

You’ll be able to apply machine learning to self-driving cars in no time: get The Robotics & Machine Learning of Self-Driving Cars for $49 from the Daily Dot Store today.
