Utility Analytics 201
Utility Analytics 201: Applied Machine Learning for Utility Professionals
Today, widespread Machine Learning (ML) in the Utility industry has become more prevalent than imagined a few short years ago. This training introduces ML, including the concepts of exploratory data analysis, supervised learning (classification and regression), and unsupervised learning (dimensionality reduction and clustering). Participants will apply concepts through guided, hands-on activities.
UAI has partnered with the University of Oklahoma Data Science and Analytics Institute (OU DSAI) to develop and deliver Utility Analytics 201 training.
Utility Analytics 201 is delivered via public classroom, virtual classroom, and private group training throughout the year. All delivery formats consist of a lecture component and practical utility analytics application.
Each Utility Analytics 201 training provides a Certificate of Participation and Completion and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through the University of Oklahoma upon completion of the course. CEUs are awarded to training participants at a rate of one (1.0) CEU for every ten (10) contact hours of training. The Utility Analytics 201 public classroom course includes 18 hours of training (1.8 CEUs) and the virtual classroom course includes 15 hours of training (1.5 CEUs).
