The field of machine learning continues to boast incredible job growth, salaries, and skill sets that can be used in many different industries. Google utilizes this technology in their Cloud product to allow startups to build machine learning models that work on data of any size, while GE utilizes IoT to help detect and prevent anomalies and crashes in their products. These are just a snapshot of the numerous applications of machine learning in the market today that display the potential for an exponential amount of professional expansion. Currently, just in the US alone, there are over 50,000 open roles for machine learning professionals, so now is the time to develop machine learning expertise!
In LinkedIn’s 2020 Emerging Jobs report, AI Specialist, a role that includes machine learning, deep learning, TensorFlow, and Python as key skills, boasts 74% annual growth. All of the above skills are incorporated into Udacity’s new Intro to Machine Learning with TensorFlow Nanodegree program, which is a great way to get introduced to the fundamentals of machine learning, including areas like manipulating data, supervised & unsupervised learning, and deep learning.
So what is TensorFlow, and how is it being utilized today? TensorFlow is a deep learning framework made by Google for creating machine learning (ML) models that use multi-layer neural networks. The TensorFlow library allows users to perform functions by creating computational graphs. AirBnB utilizes TensorFlow to improve the guest experience to categorize listing photos by classifying images and detecting objects at scale. Coca-Cola uses TensorFlow to enable mobile proof-of-purchase at scale, while PayPal uses TensorFlow to detect fraud, and Twitter uses TensorFlow to rank tweets, highlighting the broad and powerful range of applications.
“Today I work as a machine learning engineer, it’s like a dream come true,” chuckles the very excited Omkar Sahasrabudhe. Omkar moved from being an intern to a Web Developer and now a Machine Learning Engineer in just a little over a year. This is his story.

There is no doubt that education is the key to transform lives. But now that we are living in the age of digital technologies, we are quickly getting accustomed to seeing education itself being transformed by leaps and bounds. The coming up of new-age players in the online education space has innovated both the nature and quality of education, and it is just the beginning of EdTech evolution.
It’s no secret that the tech world has many different vague job titles. UI Design and UX Design are commonly confused roles in the process of creating software. While the titles sound similar, the actual jobs vary quite a bit.
Despite being the heart of nearly any digital marketing effort, not much attention is paid to what SEO, or search engine optimization, actually is. One of the reasons for this is perhaps the fact that it’s extremely hard to define precisely, given how its application is spread across verticals, teams, and channels – and is still forever evolving. But also given how it’s the core of any modern digital marketing strategy, we’re bound to try to define it anyway.
As 16-year-olds, one of the biggest challenges we faced was memorizing the lessons we learned at school. But, an even bigger challenge was remembering those lessons for a long period of time after memorizing them. Mostafa faced the same challenge at school. The only difference is that he decided to use technology to bridge this gap.
Mostafa started to learn how to program in 5th grade. When he was in 9th grade his country, Egypt, decided to build a new educational system which largely depended on technology. Every student was given a tablet and access to digital learning content on their tablet. He decided to use his knowledge in programming to make an education app, EduCup, to try to help Egypt solve its education problems.
“How to make the most of your Job Search?” Udacity works to answer this question throughout the course of our Career Services program. We learn about what works by working with our Alumni and with those who have gone on to have job search success.
The Careers Team organized a virtual event where Alumni were invited to connect directly with current students and share their experiences. They shared tips on how they navigated their job search, and ultimately landed a job after graduating. If you are interested in learning more, feel free to watch the event here:
