Why IoT and ML?

IoT is the next digital revolution which is going to change our lives in ways never imagined before. You can explore many real-life examples of IoT devices that are commercially available, and you will have a glimpse of the future of the Internet of Things. This course will help you to gain adequate knowledge on the state of the art of IoT, its application and important implementation issues. You will also get hands-on exposure on various IoT hardware platforms. In the recent years, machine learning has emerged as powerful techniques for solving problem involve huge loads of data. Machine learning provides algorithms and tools that are useful for solving classification and regression tasks in the supervised learning problems, clustering and frequent pattern mining tasks in unsupervised learning problems, tasks of controlling the behavior of machines in reinforcement learning problems.
