Becoming an AI Apprentice – A Field Guide

Updated 10th Feb 2020

This is version 3 of the “So you want to become an AI Apprentice”. We have now renamed this resource as “Becoming an AI Apprentice – A Field Guide”. We expect to update this resource often.

This field guide lays out the skills we expect candidates applying to the AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP)™ should have.

Changes in version 3:

  1. content is now aligned to AI Singapore’s AI Certification initiative
  2. all online courses and materials recommended are free (at the time we review the resource)
  3. updated Statistical Learning (ISL) with Python exercises instead of R
