Machine Learning Academy (MLA) is a tailored competence development and upskilling training program for the Finnish industrial companies.

Machine Learning Academy includes diverse learning modules from Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to ethics, and from designing and managing Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects to implementing ML & AI in the company business.

The goal of the training is to increase the participants’ understanding of how to utilize Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in their company.

After the MLA academy, participants will understand the fundamentals of machine learning, as well as the ability to recognize and manage development tasks that aim to benefit from ML and AI.

YOU WILL GET

  • Basic understanding of the principles, methods, abilities and limitations of ML/AI.
  • Current knowledge of related tools, commercial platforms, and implementations.
  • Ability to specify, design, and lead activities aiming at applying ML methods, algorithms, and technologies into your business operations.
  • An Initial plan on when, where, and how you can deploy ML methods and technologies in your business.

What has been said about MLA:

“One concrete example was Ponsse’s field project, which focused on after-sales services, especially field maintenance of the harvesting equipment where Machine Learning was to be used to recognize the needed oil change interval. Hydraulic oil and filters are currently changed at fixed intervals, approximately every 1800 hours, and optimized change interval would mean remarkable savings.”
