Class Experience

Understanding the concepts of machine learning as implemented in neural networks for classification and regression while fostering a fascination with technology and a desire to dig deeper. 
I have been in the tech industry all my life, building computer hardware and software in the early 70s. Through the years I have produced many software and hardware products as programmer, architect, Vp, or CTO. Several of these projects utilized the concepts of machine learning. Couple that experience and skill with the ability to present difficult concepts in a practical, easy to understand manner, and that produces a class environment to build a solid foundation and love of technology. I focus on understanding the concepts from the ground up before building skills, to build that solid foundation. 
Homework will involve enough study after class to absorb the concepts presented each week. The website can be used 24x7 for practice. Week 3 will be a week of the class project where each  learner works independently to create the best network model to solve a specific problem. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
