About the program
INTERNATIONAL INTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAMS
The Heart of AI: Artificial Intelligence Workshop Hub and Data Science in the Centre of Europe – International Intensive Training Programs are carried out thanks to European Union’s funding under the Spinaker Program aimed at internationalization of higher education.
The Spinaker Program is implemented within the framework of the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange's (NAWA's) and co-financed by the European Social Fund under the Operational Program Knowledge Education Development.
The program includes three separate modules
AI is a key optimization and prediction technology for organizations. This online training focuses on three important themes: how Natural Language Processing (NLP) increases business potential, the basics of machine learning and the conditions of strategy implementation at particular times. During the course we will present the basics of machine learning and the conditions for implementing ML and AI in organizations. The training is based on Michael Porter's five-forces framework.
The course will be conducted together with NASK, National Research Institute: https://en.nask.pl/
Nowadays, data science offers many possibilities for business. This online training offers a deep-dive into data science in and for business. If you wish to learn how data-driven analytical thinking transforms business organization and influences the overall business performance, the knowledge presented contained in the course that we have prepared together with our partners is a true compendium of how to build data-driven processes and data-driven organizations.
This online training provides the essential features of Python programming language The ultimate benefit of the training is a sharper understanding of Python programming environments. Students will learn how to discern data types and gain insight on how to conduct logical operations that can improve business performance.
