  • Format: iD Tech Academies | Small-Group, On-Campus
  • Duration: Two-week program

About This Course

If you had to choose between a computer or a doctor to detect and analyze early signs of cancer, which would you choose?

Why not both? Machine learning methods, while formalized in the 1950s, have only recently become powerful enough to make a huge impact. These deep learning methods have performed better at early cancer detection than professional radiologists! From image detection and Snapchat filters to Natural Language Processing and Siri, machine learning is ready to push our technology into the future.

Start with Python, TensorFlow, Keras, and libraries used by industry experts to build neural networks and reward your computer for succeeding at its goals! Tweak your reward schemes and process your data so you can see your computer improve its learning. Put your skills to the test with datasets used by professionals, like MNIST and CIFAR-10, or even learn how to collect your own! You’ll build multiple neural networks from the ground up and watch them learn right before your eyes.

Topics Covered

  • Use industry-standard technology like Tensorflow and Keras to build neural networks
  • Develop coding and computational thinking skills
  • Explore machine learning with Python
  • Train models to learn without being directly coded
  • Optimize learning rates and algorithms
  • Prepare, aggregate, and clean datasets to train networks

Course Format 

This machine learning summer camp is part of an intensive 2-week program running Monday through Friday (overnight at most locations with the option to stay the weekend within the two weeks). Your teen will learn in a lab on an inspiring university campus with a balanced daily schedule of assignment-driven workshops and outdoor/recreational activities. Courses are led by experienced instructors in a small-group setting. Learn more below. 
 


Sample Schedule

With techniques used by industry professionals, students will build Python projects, create image recognition models, and analyze the different purposes of machine learning frameworks.

Here’s a sample of what a week in this machine learning course could look like! Please keep in mind that students will progress at varying paces; this is a general outline of key material and the overall student experience.

During the first week, students will learn the fundamentals of Python coding and machine learning. They’ll start by building their own programs, including a player vs. player text-based game. Then, students will explore machine learning-based libraries such as NumPy, MatPlotLib, and Pandas, and learn how to implement neural networks and image recognition models with the MNIST database, CIFAR-10 dataset, and TensorFlow.

In the second week, students will cultivate their skills to analyze webpage data and build a sentiment analysis network using Amazon reviews. In addition, students will hone their skills by creating a text generator and building a chatbot system. To wrap up the week, students will finalize their networks and showcase the results of all of the projects they’ve created throughout this course.

Portfolio-Boosting Diploma & Transcript

At the conclusion of your teen's course, they will receive an official iD Tech diploma and course transcript outlining the skills they learned over the session.

FAQ

iD Tech Academies offer intensive, assignment-driven programming workshops in various course topics including machine learning, virtual reality, game development, robotics, and more. Programs are designed to be a rigorous, pre-college experience that provides industry insights for teens interested in pursuing STEM fields in college or as a career.

All graduates will leave their academy with a portfolio tailored to their course topic - which is invaluable for college applications, internships, and jobs - along with their iD Tech Diploma. 

In the coming years, many companies like DeepMind and OpenAI hope to solve general artificial intelligence, which is a term for an AI that can learn and perform any task put in front of it. This breakthrough is likely still years in the future, but it has the potential to revolutionize how human beings interact with technology, the job market, and society in general.

In the shorter term, machine learning has practical business applications like analyzing large volumes of data, powering self-driving vehicles, and assisting medical diagnoses. As AI research advances, the number of tasks it can perform will only increase. Companies are already desperate for AI experts and aggressively hiring those with expertise in the field.

This course is taught by live iD Tech instructors who specialize in machine learning and are recruited from top universities like Stanford, Caltech, NYU, and Carnegie Mellon.

Yes, this course is designed for beginner to advanced students. Our small class size ensures that each student receives individual attention and has the freedom to learn at their own pace.

In addition to specialized skills, teens leave their academy with a new network of friends and mentors, resilience, critical thinking opportunities, and official certification that stands out to admissions officers.

At the conclusion of the academy experience, teens will receive an official iD Tech diploma and course transcript outlining everything they learned during the program. They’ll also take home a USB with their course project files, along with access to installation and setup guides so they can continue working at their own pace.

Yes! You can register today for as little as $500 per student, and pay the balance in convenient monthly installments. 

You can also save by registering for multiple sessions (save $50 when you buy a second course in another topic or for a sibling), or by inviting friends to join at camp (earn a $25 credit for each new referral; your friends save $25 too). 

With our weeklong summer camps, teens can strike the perfect balance between STEM skill development and summer fun, experiencing collegiate life and learning on-campus at a prestigious university. (Overnight options available at select locations.)

Additionally, with online programs including private lessons, teen academies, and virtual camps, there is a program that fits your teen’s interests, skill level, goals, and importantly, schedule. Learn more.

Our Program Specialists are here to provide you with the best experience. Looking for a personalized course recommendation? Need help signing up? We’ve got you covered. Call us at 1-888-709-8324 or email hello@idtech.com
