About AI Planet (formerly DPhi):
AI Planet is a Global Data Science community that started with a vision to build data culture and democratize Data Science learning. The community currently comprises of passionate Data Scientists and Data Science Enthusiasts who enjoy learning, sharing knowledge, and love giving back to the community.
About the initiative:
Online Machine Learning Bootcamp is an initiative aimed at providing Machine Learning Education with the help of the experts and professionals in the community. We believe the contributions made by several Data Scientists to this initiative will go a long way in educating many budding Data Science/AI enthusiasts. It doesn’t just stop with education, but it will go a long way in shaping the future of A.I in the nation.

The learning path will be similar to this.
Teaching Pedagogy that worked for us:
- Make learners understand intuition first. Once they understand something intuitively it is easy for them to understand the mathematics and statistics behind it. So for live sessions, we purely make it a practice to just teach intuition.
- Explain what, why, and how to do it?
- “How to do it?” in the above point refers to hands-on sessions. Learners get what they see, that’s the best part of a hands-on session where the tutor runs the code live and shows them the output. It also keeps the learners captivating throughout the session
- Our Educators Guidelines can be found here.
Format of the Bootcamp:
- Day-wise modules: We will publish day-wise learning modules/challenges that include self-paced learning material of concepts, jupyter notebooks, quizzes, assignments
- Live sessions: There will be 2-3 live classes every week by Data Science experts
- For real-time communication, we will be using Slack. This medium will help learners to clear doubts on a real-time basis if they are stuck somewhere. In addition, this will also allow learners to interact with the mentors and fellow learners
- Certification: At the end of the Bootcamp we will provide a certificate based on the performance of the learners
