Microsoft Partners Netflix To Teach Data Science, AI

Microsoft launched the Global Skills Initiative this summer aimed at helping 25 million people worldwide acquire new digital skills.


The company has introduced new modules in collaboration with Netflix that guide learners through the concepts in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence.


The new Explore Space with “Over the Moon” learning path comprises of three parts:


Plan a Moon Mission using the Python Pandas Library – Like Fei Fei, use data to plan your own mission to the moon. Ensure your rocket can not only get you there, but also bring you and all your moon rocks safely back to Earth. Analyze and visualize datasets with common data cleansing practices.


Predict Meteor Showers using Python and VC Code – Build a machine learning prediction model after cleansing a space-themed dataset on meteor showers. Incorporate Chang’e’s potential effects on meteor showers for an added complexity.


Use AI to Recognize Objects in Images using Azure Custom Vision – Repurposing the camera on the lunar rover, search through the moon’s surface for Fei Fei’s buddy Bungee before it’s time to head back to Earth. Use Azure Custom Vision to classify pictures of animals without ever writing code.


Magno Herran, head of UCAN Marketing Partnerships, Netflix, said, "Netflix is excited to partner with Microsoft to bring some of the challenges of space travel that Fei Fei overcame in ‘Over The Moon’ to life with real world technical application in this new Microsoft Learn path.”
