On 7 June 2022, Amazon India launched the second edition of Machine Learning (ML) Summer School, an immersive program that aims to provide students with the opportunity to learn key ML technologies from Scientists at Amazon making them industry ready for careers in science. The course, conducted over four weekends in July, will provide students with an opportunity to gain skills on key ML topics, including Supervised Learning, Deep Neural Networks, Sequential Models, Dimensionality Reduction, Unsupervised Learning and two new modules, Reinforcement Learning and Causal Inference.


Participants will also have access to Amazon Research Days (ARD) conference – an engagement program held in November every year. ARD connects the scientific community at Amazon, industry leaders, and academic researchers in the field of AI around the world. Amazon will also conduct ML Challenge, its flagship ML competition in August, which is a unique opportunity for students to work on an Amazon dataset, bring in fresh ideas and build innovative solutions for a real-world problem statement. Winning teams will receive pre-placement interviews (PPIs) for ML roles at Amazon along with cash prizes, swag, and certificates.
