What do you know about TinyML? Tiny Machine Learning (TinyML) is one of the fastest-growing areas of Deep Learning and is rapidly becoming more accessible. This course provides a foundation for you to understand this emerging field. TinyML is at the intersection of embedded Machine Learning (ML) applications, algorithms, hardware, and software. TinyML differs from mainstream machine learning (e.g., server and cloud) in that it requires not only software expertise, but also embedded-hardware expertise. The first course in the TinyML Certificate series, Fundamentals of TinyML will focus on the basics of machine learning, deep learning, and embedded devices and systems, such as smartphones and other tiny devices. Throughout the course, you will learn data science techniques for collecting data and develop an understanding of learning algorithms to train basic machine learning models. At the end of this course, you will be able to understand the “language” behind TinyML and be ready to dive into the application of TinyML in future courses. Following Fundamentals of TinyML, the other courses in the TinyML Professional Certificate program will allow you to see the code behind widely-used Tiny ML applications — such as tiny devices and smartphones — and be able to deploy code to your own physical TinyML device.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
