COMMON QUESTIONS

WHERE DO YOU HOLD YOUR COURSES?

Courses will be held live and online using a private zoom link.  Final confirmation will be emailed to participants.  

HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?

Training workshop length is four (4) hours per week  ranges from two (2)  hours for the Tuesday/Thursday cohort and four (4) hours for the Wednesday or Saturday cohort.  

WHAT RESOURCES WILL BE USED?

Where possible, the course will rely on free open source resources to enhance learning. Furthermore, course participants will be informed if there are any extra fees that will be incurred prior to enrollment.  As one learning outcome is to train participants on how to use popular cloud resources, particularly in the deployment of production-level ML systems, additional fees are expected when using certain cloud services.  Lastly, a  wifi-enabled computer system with  at least 8GB RAM and 64GB hard drive is recommended to enable rapid implementation of training materials.  

WHAT TYPE OF CERTIFICATION IS

PROVIDED?

A certificate will be provided upon participation and completion of the training workshop to demonstrate proficiency in detecting and eliminating the most common forms of bias in AI as well as design, development and deployment of an automated stress test that detects bias in AI systems.  

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION?

A new webhook (scripts+tips) based on the most popular 3rd Party APIs will be created for paid monthly subscribers.  Scripts are in Python3 and installation requirements, specified coding environments as well as helpful tips to make sure API access for DialogFlow fulfillment is possible are provided.  

WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?

We have over 10 years experience creating, protecting and monetizing products based on machine learning and artificial intelligence.  Furthermore, we were contacted and asked to prepare "Tackling Bias in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence" for use in the insurance industry given the urgent need to detect bias in AI systems.  Course materials were prepared after extensive collaboration with private/public organizations to ensure easy transition into data science or machine learning roles.  Furthermore, participants will also be asked to consider employment opportunities with sponsoring companies.

ARE THERE ANY PREREQUISITES?

These training workshops are not for the faint at heart as participants will be taught how to detect and dismantle bias in AI systems.  Foundational experience (or a willingness) in math, stats, coding, machine learning and/or AI will help reinforce learning.  However, basic theory and application will be communicated to give participants a better understanding of how to excel in corporate America or on their own as DATAPRENEURS.  As bias in AI can be extremely lucrative, an overarching goal is to train up the next generation of data scientists who tackle these systemic barriers with optimism and creativity.  

IS THERE A WAITING 

LIST?

Applicants have their choice of three different cohorts (days) from which to select enrollment.  If some reason a particular cohort is full, a waiting list will be created and interested applicants will be contacted as soon as possible.  

CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC TYPE OF WEBHOOK?

If you have a specific webhook that you would like to see featured as the "MONTHLY WEBHOOK", please let us know as we are open to suggestions.  If you require more assistance, please let us know as we can create custom webhooks for a fee.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

An initial application fee of $30 is charged to support review of applicant information for placement and scholarships (if selected).  The eight week training workshop fee is $10,000 and a limited number of scholarships have been designated based on corporate interest.  Space is limited and a nonrefundable minimum deposit of $1250  will be required to hold your seat if you do not qualify for a scholarship.  Any remaining balance will be due on the Sunday prior to the current weeks' live online training workshop to attend instruction if a weekly payment plan is selected.
