**Delegates Feedback**

"The course provided our company with an excellent introduction to the key concepts behind machine learning. Simple explanations of the core concepts and algorithms were provided along with practical worked examples. The course was engaging and interesting and delivered by experienced presenters who brought a wide range of practical experience and insights. I would recommend this course to anybody looking to apply machine learning algorithms in their work"

Jason Payne - Wood Group Kenny

"In three days John and Brian managed to impart a ton of technical knowledge in a relaxed, interactive manner. They also delivered a comprehensive methodology that allowed me to start right away on data analysis projects based on machine learning. The excellent facilities and course structure were a bonus"
