Machine Learning allows computers to learn from hidden patterns in big data to quantitatively support business decisions. In this unit, we will cover a large range of methods and algorithms that learn from big data, allowing decision makers to view previously hidden patterns and relationships and build suitable models to support business decision making.

In this unit, students will be introduced to fundamental programming concepts required by business professionals to work with machine learning concepts. This unit introduces machine learning techniques using software package Python, where the emphasis will be on solving business problems using the analysis of business data.
