AI Fundamentals offers learners a basic foundational understanding of machine learning (ML) and AI concepts. This course also prepares learners to implement ML and AI workloads using Azure. There is no prerequisite for the course as AI Fundamentals is intended for learners with both technical and non-technical backgrounds.
Upon completing the AI Fundamentals free course, learners will have a foundational understanding of the following:
AI workloads and considerations
Fundamental principles of ML on Azure
Computer vision workloads on Azure
Natural Language Processing (NLP) workloads on Azure
While Udacity enables students to learn at their own pace, the AI Fundamentals course can be completed in as little as one month at 20 hours a week.
You completed the AI Fundamentals course, now what?
After completing this course with Udacity, learners will be prepared to take the AI-900 exam and become certified in Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals. Whether a learner is looking for new roles or wanting to upskill in their current role, being adept in Microsoft Azure and having a certification to prove it is a competitive advantage. In fact, according to the Value of IT Certification Survey by Pearson Vue, almost thirty-five percent of technical professionals said getting certified led to salary or wage increases, and twenty-six percent reported job promotions.
While the AI Fundamentals course and the AI-900 certification exam will teach and test learners on their foundational understanding of AI on Azure, learners who are interested in furthering their learning can enroll in the Machine Learning Engineer for Microsoft Azure Nanodegree program with Udacity.
