Cognitive Analytics with IBM

Learn how to analyze data with IBM’s cognitive tools! Today, cognitive data analytics is a must-have feature for most applications that we use every day, such as predicting weather, recommender systems in shopping apps, and fraud detection in credit card tools. If you are interested in learning how data analytics actually works and how it augments human ability, then this learning path is for you.

About this learning path

Cognitive analytics is all about unlocking the hidden insights from your data. Data can be structured, unstructured, audio, or visual – and to make all that data work together as an engine that augments human ability. In this learning path, you will learn how to use state-of-the-art analytic tools from IBM to accelerate your business. You will learn how to use statistical concepts to describe, explore, and understand your data. You will also go through modeling approaches from basic machine learning concepts to advanced algorithms and optimizations. Get some practical knowledge with open source Machine Learning libraries like Apache SystemML, and learn how to use the most popular language by data scientists for machine learning: Python. At the end, learn how to use Watson Analytics, a smart and fast service that uses the power of IBM’s Watson to automatically discover insights in your data.

Machine learning with Apache SystemML

Effort: 8 hours
Level: Intermediate
Available in: English
About the course

Apache SystemML is a declarative style language designed for large-scale machine learning. It provides automatic generation of optimized runtime plans ranging from single-node, to in-memory, to distributed computations on Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark. SystemML algorithms are expressed in R-like or Python-like syntax that includes linear algebra primitives, statistical functions and ML-specific constructs.

Our learning paths are designed to build on the content learned in the first course and then build upon the concepts in courses that follow.
