In this course, students work in groups on machine learning projects based on real-world business cases and solutions. Students will learn the project lifecycle and acquire the multidisciplinary teamwork and strategy skills required for employment. While working in domain-specific cohorts on applied machine learning business cases using problems and datasets developed by local companies, students will also explore the business case for employing machine learning solutions. By working through applied machine learning projects, students will begin to develop a portfolio of work and learn the practical skills of conceptualizing and progressing through a basic project workflow as a team. This course is taught by local experts and industry guest lecturers, so students will have the opportunity to engage industry experts and network with potential employers. Examples of domain-specific cohorts may include health, fintech, social enterprise, and environmental science and natural resources. Students must complete this course in a term directly before CMPT 3835 (Machine Learning Work Integrated Project II). Note for international learners: This is not work-integrated learning, and there are no practicum hours assigned to this course. International learners do not require a co-op work study permit for this course.
