Explore how machine learning is revolutionising the creative industries
From photography to music, creative AI is changing the way we interact with technology.
On this course, you’ll learn the core concepts of what machine learning is, and how machine learning works. You’ll learn how to build simple classification systems that can discriminate between different types of information, and regressions systems that can map interactions onto different outputs, like sliders on a synthesiser.
You’ll explore the full extent of machine learning systems’ abilities, specifically in relation to the creative industries.
This course is aimed at people who would like to work in the creative industries and want to know how machine learning can be used in that context. The course is also valuable for students considering a master’s degree in creative computing and want to know what it would involve, or people wanting to become a machine learning engineer in general.

You will need a laptop with a webcam to do some of the exercises in this course. Apart from that, all examples and coding activities require an internet browser, preferably Google Chrome or Mozilla’s Firefox.
