Microsoft and Cloudswyft via FutureLearn Program


Offered through a collaboration with Microsoft, this microcredential will teach you the fundamentals of AI and provide you with the skills to design and build an AI solution using Microsoft Azure. We will prepare you for the Microsoft Azure AI Engineer Associate (AI-100) certification; the cost of this microcredential includes vouchers for this exam.

Take your first steps towards an AI career

Artificial intelligence is one of the key drivers of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Accordingly, artificial intelligence skills are frequently listed among the most in-demand workplace skills in the current and future job market, as organisations seek to harness AI to revolutionise their operations.

While in-demand tech skills are changing, employers are faced with a shortfall of qualified candidates.

On this microcredential, you’ll address this challenge by developing key AI skills that can serve as the first steps towards becoming an AI engineer, business analyst, or AI professional.

Build an AI solution with Microsoft Azure

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud-computing platform, used by more than 95% of Fortune 500 companies.

As well as learning to use this advanced Azure AI functionality, you’ll get the latest Microsoft Azure training, gaining a detailed introduction to the core services on offer. These skills will boost your employability beyond just AI or machine-learning jobs.

Develop Python AI skills

Machine learning drives the predictive models at the heart of artificial intelligence. You’ll build key data science and machine learning skills, using the popular Python programming language.

This machine learning credential covers basic Python for data science, data science research methods, and machine learning for Python.

Develop an AI chatbot in Microsoft Azure

The culmination of this AI course will be an introduction to Azure Cognitive Services, which you’ll use to create your own chatbot. Using LUIS (Language Understanding), you’ll discover how to use machine learning to improve your chatbot using natural-language processing.

By the end of the microcredential you’ll have a solid understanding of the practical skills needed for AI and machine learning jobs.

Will I earn a Microsoft Role-based Azure certification?

Yes. If you successfully complete this microcredential, you’ll receive a voucher to sit a separate exam to earn the Microsoft Azure AI Engineer Associate (AI-100) certification.
