    Master advanced machine learning techniques in our AI Applications workshop! In our live virtual program, students will learn about the most cutting edge machine learning algorithms of today. This program will cover a variety of different applications of AI including recommender algorithms, fraud detection, and time series analysis.

    Who are the BCA Team?

    • Director & Founder Corey Wade is a Berkeley Unified School District credentialed educator with over 10,000 hours of classroom teaching and is a Data Science author and speaker.
    • Data science students and graduates from UC Berkeley and other elite universities are cohort leads and classroom assistants.
    • Researchers actively applying AI and Machine Learning to academic research and real world problems teach and advance curriculum.

    What will you take away?

    • Advanced proficiency in machine learning and AI packages including keras, TensorFlow, and Scikit-Learn
    • Deep knowledge on where, when, and how to apply specific machine learning solutions such as generative adversarial networks, recurrent neural networks, and large language models.
    • Block-chain authenticated certificates that exist on Web2 and Web3 that will stand out on college applications. 
    • Lasting connections with other Berkeley Coding Academy students and instructors who can offer ongoing support and guidance in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.
    • A greater understanding of the real code behind AI and how it can shape and influence our world.

    Who is our program for?

    All high school and middle school students who are excited by the possibilities of AI are encouraged to join. Our curriculum is designed for students who are proficient in Python at the level of writing your own functions and accessing libraries via dot-notation. Students are divided into cohorts by age (12-14, 15-18) so they are collaborating among peers in their age group.

    What does our program look like?

    Each day Berkeley Coding Academy students participate in two interactive lectures of 30+ minutes and two cohort sessions of 60 minutes. During cohort time, students may receive additional instruction and 1-1 support as they apply new skills to project development, and problem-solving notebooks. We break the day up with 15 minutes of bonus time for students to bond via various online activities. Since our program is entirely online, students can participate from anywhere with a Zoom connection.

    Why choose BCA?

    Berkeley Coding Academy is one of the only programs in the world with an original curriculum carefully designed and revised for teens to learn real data science, machine learning, and AI. Our small cohorts (4-8 students) ensure students receive the 1-1 instruction needed to succeed, while still providing a collaborative environment to work together to tackle challenging problems. Our dedication to student education and success is why we ranked in the Parents' Press top 5 in 2022 and continue to inspire students from around the world.
