IBM is Giving Out $800 Worth of Data Science and AI Courses For Free
Plus $300 of other bonuses.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” — Benjamin Franklin
Attend the Upcoming IBM Conference
On November 24th, IBM is running a free, online Data & AI Conference for India and the Asia Pacific region, covering four tracks:
- AI in production
- Five hands-on labs
- Data and AI essentials course
- Data competitions and open source
AI today is easier to implement than ever before with AutoML tools like Obviously.AI — the real challenge is in coming up with creative and valuable use-cases. This conference is a great opportunity to network and learn about novel AI uses.
Besides earning a Data & AI Essentials badge for attending the conference, IBM partnered with Coursera to give attendees an amazing offer — four free certifications:
- IBM AI Enterprise Workflow Specialization (4 months)
- IBM Machine Learning Professional Certificate (6 months)
- IBM Data Science Professional Certificate (10 months)
- Advanced-Data Science with IBM Specialization (4 months)
If you take these courses consecutively and spend the recommended duration on them, then that’s 24 months' worth of learning material — equal to $800 of value (2 years of Coursera Plus!).
Beyond those $800-worth of courses, attendees get $300 in credits to spend on any services in the IBM Cloud Catalog, which is just mind-blowing.
What You’ll Learn
While the courses alone provide an incredible amount of value, the conference itself is jam-packed with powerful insights in data science and AI.
The 5 hands-on labs include cutting-edge topics like deep reinforcement learning in finance, topics on AI fairness and bias, and building an AutoAI pipeline for cyber threat detection.
You’ll also have the opportunity to join the “Call for Code Spot Challenge on Wildfires,” where you’ll develop models to forecast wildfires in Australia. This challenge offers the opportunity to make a real difference, besides potentially winning prizes.
Learn from the best
This conference is an opportunity to learn from industry leaders like Sriram Raghavan, Vice President of IBM Research AI; Peter Wang, CEO of Anaconda Inc; Francesca Rossi, IBM AI Ethics Global Leader, and many more pioneers.
Need more convincing?
While these Data & AI conferences are fairly new, take a look back at the free Coursera courses if you need more convincing, as you’ll find that over 250,000 students have enrolled across those specializations.
Each specialization has over a 4-star rating, with an average rating of 4.5 stars. You’ll learn a plethora of hard, real-world skills that are needed to land industry jobs, including Jupyter, GitHub, R Studio, Watson Studio, Pandas, NumPy, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Folium, ipython-sql, Scikit-learn, SciPy, and more.
That’s a mouthful!
If you haven’t signed up for the conference already, I hope you will soon — and I’ll (virtually) see you there.
