Machine learning is the study of algorithms that automatically improve performance with experience.

These algorithms allow computers do things like automatically identify and harness useful data to help decision making, find hidden insights without being explicitly programmed where to look, and predict outcomes of certain policies to help authorities design effective policies.

You'll graduate with skills at the forefront of this massive growth area as society looks for automated and continuous improvements on how to enhance business and our lives through the use of computing systems and data.

These skills can be applied in government departments, consultancy or private sector organisations.
