In this course you will go through a real life machine learning project from start to finish and develop a model in a similar way to leading tech organisations. We will explore the following four areas each week:
The case study we will work through is an anonymised dataset where the desire is to predict customer churn. What that exactly means and how it is exactly done will be discovered through the sessions using the Open Algorithm Design framework.
There will be an opportunity for students to apply to attend a four week full-time paid internship at northraine where extensive real-life projects can be explained, taught and walked through (including access to research methodologies and client presentations). Spots are limited for this opportunity.

City of Melbourne
The development of Melbourne as a knowledge city has long been a priority. Today, the knowledge city concept remains a central component to the vision of the city. The City of Melbourne seeks to create a future in which the knowledge sector is better branded, understood, valued and experienced.
“The City of Melbourne continues to develop new ways to gather and share information to support those whose innovations and developments underpin the growth of the city. We broaden understanding and respect for Melbourne’s diverse knowledge sector and ensure learning can be a lifelong process.”
Inspire9 is the original community-led co-working space for Melbourne’s startups, freelancers, and creative entrepreneurs. It is a community in the truest sense. We share ideas, responsibilities and opportunities. We collaborate on projects, help our neighbours with a tricky technical problem and broker business deals over a game of pool or ping-pong. At the end of the week, we savour the satisfaction of work well done over a cheese plate and glass of something nice at our friendly Friday Night Drinks.
The Dream Factory has created a space for extraordinary people to gather and innovate in design, technology and social change. It is owned and powered by Impact Investment Group and has become one of Melbourne’s premier workplaces and event locations. The building features an ample on-site and secure car parking, very accessible bike paths from Melbourne CBD and inner north, great end-of-trip facilities, and loads of breakout spaces, meeting rooms and communal areas. The rooftop is one of Melbourne’s best panoramas of the city and port and is accessible to all its tenants.
