Amazon India has announced the beginning of its Machine Learning Summer School, an integrated learning programme designed to prepare students for careers in the technology industry.
Engineering students in their pre-final and final year of their Bachelors, Masters, or Ph.D. courses are eligible to apply. The three-day ML Summer School curriculum will cover the principles of machine learning and connect them to practical commercial applications. Students will learn how to use Deep Learning and Probabilistic Graphical Models to solve challenges particular to the e-commerce industry, such as demand forecasting, catalog quality, product recommendations, search ranking, and online advertising.
“With the pace of breakthroughs in ML, we are proactively helping students learn about the newest trends in the field of ML and apply them to address real-world problems,” said Rajeev Rastogi, VP of India Machine Learning at Amazon. Our goal is to train students for careers in science, which will help bridge the gap between the growing demand for machine learning roles in businesses and the talent pool with applied machine learning skills.”
Amazon India will use an online evaluation to shortlist students from partner universities. Candidates will have access to virtual tutorials and the Amazon Research Days (ARD) conference, where they will learn about technology trends from leading machine learning experts from across the world.
Amazon India has partnered with IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IISc, IIT BHU, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Bangalore, Indraprastha Institute of Technology in Delhi, BITS, IIT Hyderabad, ISM Dhanbad, IIT Roorkee, IIT Guwahati, NIT Tiruchirappalli, NIT Surathkal, NIT Warangal, Anna University
