Lambda Academy
of Machine Learning and Data Science

Intensive training for a career in machine learning and data science

The Course

The Lambda Academy of Machine Learning and Data Science runs for six months. The next class begins in April 2018.

You'll learn in a live, interactive class from anywhere in the world, full-time Monday through Friday 9-6pm PST. This course will prepare you with all of the techniques necessary to succeed in today's world of Machine Learning. 


“You're going to be a dinosaur”

“Artificial Intelligence, deep learning, machine learning — whatever you’re doing if you don’t understand it — learn it. Because otherwise you’re going to be a dinosaur within 3 years.”

- Mark Cuban


Expert Instructor: Thomson Comer

Thomson received his M.S. in C.S. from Colorado State University in 2009, much to his Ph.D. advisor Bruce Draper's chagrin. Thomson studied Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Evolutionary Algorithms, Human Computational Neuroscience, and Computer Vision during his (ABD) Ph.D. studies. His research was funded by the U.S. Government under the DARPA Project, Harvard University, and professor Stephen Kosslyn. Professionally, Thomson has built successful M.L. models at Mersive, Samsung, and Dell, and learned the essentials of pragmatic and agile software development through many other contracts.


“We almost need a salary cap”

“Artificial Intelligence salaries are soaring so high that sometimes I joke we need to place an NFL-style salary cap on AI experts' earnings.”

- Christopher Fernandez, Microsoft

“Tech giants are paying huge salaries for scarce AI talent”

“Nearly all big tech companies have an artificial intelligence project,
and they are willing to pay experts millions of dollars to help get it done."

- Cade Metz, Oct. 22, 2017. The New York Times.


Lambda School is pioneering a new model of higher education in which the school invests in the students, instead of the other way around. Attending Lambda School can be completely free up-front (no deposit, no down-payment), and students pay back a portion of their income after they find a high-paying job.

If, for some reason, a student is unable to find a job with a salary above $50,000/year, they are not required to pay anything.
