We recently launched a new Online Learning Center to help people skill up at home during this challenging time. Keep checking the ‘hub’ for updates.
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.

Teaching at the forefront of technology—as we at Udacity are fortunate to do—is both exciting and challenging. To fulfill our promise to our students, it’s critical we maintain the up-to-the-minute relevance of our content at all times. Given how fast technology changes, this process is pretty much ongoing, every day. Sometimes the changes are minor; an upgrade here, a new version there. Other times, the opportunity presents itself to engage in a significant program overhaul.
A Complete Path to a Data Career
The launch of our Data Foundations Nanodegree program (now the Business Analytics Nanodegree program) presented just such an opportunity. The addition of this new program has made it possible to now offer a complete path to a data career. But, changes to other programs in our data ecosystem—which now includes many programs including the Predictive Analytics for Business, Data Engineer, and the Data Scientist Nanodegree programs —were necessary to fully optimize this path for our students.
We’re very excited today to share details with you about new changes we’ve made to the Data Analyst Nanodegree program.

Learn Digital Marketing in 3 months.
The simple truth of digital marketing is that every business must engage in it to succeed in today’s world. Over $70 billion is already being spent on digital advertising in the U.S. alone, and this number is expected to grow by over 40 percent in the next four years. Yet despite its ubiquity, mastery of all the various tools, techniques, rapidly evolving platforms, and products that make up a successful digital marketing strategy is challenging to achieve, and a holistic understanding of how digital marketing really works can be elusive. So the field remains crowded with specialists, even as demand for multi-channel fluency increases dramatically. To address this, what is needed are new learning opportunities for digital marketers who want in-depth coverage of all the main platforms in one place, in a framework that focuses explicitly on the most important thing of all—the customer journey. If you want to learn digital marketing and break into this industry, we have the right program for you .
The Udacity Digital Marketing Nanodegree Program
We are thrilled today to be announcing our new Digital Marketing Nanodegree program. We have partnered with an incredible roster of industry-leading digital marketing companies to build a program that offers a holistic approach to the field, covers every important platform, and equips students with a broad foundation upon which to build their careers.

The excitement around our Machine Learning Nanodegree program has been amazing to witness, and the vitality and dynamism in the space right now is pretty incredible. There are so many fascinating storylines in the world of Machine Learning, it’s sometimes hard to even know what to focus on. But unquestionably, the people working in this field—those individuals at the cutting-edge of these new technologies—are a critical part of the Machine Learning narrative. One of the things I find personally really exciting is how many women are shaping the future of Machine Learning. My former colleague Katie Malone is a wonderful example of this, and I’m very grateful she was able to take some time recently to talk Machine Learning with us!
