Summer School: Amazon India launches new edition of Machine Learning Summer School
Amazon Machine Learning Summer School: Availability and eligibility
The free educational course will be conducted over four weekends in September.This course will cover eight modules that will provide students with an opportunity to gain skills on key ML topics.
These topics include Supervised Learning, Deep Neural Networks, Probabilistic Graphical Models, Dimensionality Reduction, and Unsupervised Learning. The course will also focus on fostering a strong foundation in both theoretical concepts and practical applications.
ML Summer School is open to all engineering students enrolled in Bachelor’s/Master’s/ PhD degrees from any recognised institute in India and are expected to graduate in 2024 or 2025. Eligible students will be required to take an online assessment focused on basic ML concepts and math fundamentals on topics such as probability, statistics, and linear algebra.
The top 3000 students will then be enrolled on ML Summer School, where they cover eight modules in classroom sessions over four weekends, each session followed by live Q&A sessions with scientists at Amazon.
Amazon Machine Learning Summer School: Key features
Diverging from conventional approaches that emphasise theory, Amazon’s ML Summer School offers an application-focused learning method. Participants can not only grasp theoretical concepts but also gain hands-on experience, preparing them for real-world challenges.
The program’s curriculum integrates practical applications, equipping learners with both knowledge and practical skills. Moreover, Amazon’s ML Summer School also assimilates existing science curricula in universities with industry trends, and prioritises practical learning, catering to students with varying ML backgrounds.
Amazon Machine Learning Summer School: Timeline
Since its pilot in 2021, the Amazon ML Summer School has demonstrated growth. The inaugural program saw participation from over 3500 students, with the top 300+ students earning the opportunity to partake.
Building on this success, the program expanded in 2022, attracting over 17,500 registrations from engineering students across India. Out of these, a select group of 2880 students were invited to join the program.
This year it is being expanded to include engineering students enrolled in any recognised institute in India and will see a bigger class size.
