Register for the EDSA Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists [16-17 AUGUST 2017]
The European Data Science Academy (EDSA) is excited to announce a series of Summer Bootcamps across Europe.
During the EDSA Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists, participants will start on their machine learning journey by acquiring hands-on experience with machine learning models, methods, and algorithms, so that they will be able to tackle real-world machine learning challenges. Topics covered will include machine learning theory, types of learning, techniques, models and methods. The labs are developed to practically learn how to use the R programming language and packages for applying the main concepts and techniques of Machine Learning.
The upcoming EDSA Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists will take place at the premises of the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) on the 16-17 August 2017.
The syllabus will comprise of the following topics:
- Define machine learning, why it matters, and discuss its relationship to analytics, data science, and big data.
- Machine learning fundamentals, the importance of algorithms, and machine learning as a service.
- Basics of R platform, programming language concepts, common and useful R commands, and applying machine learning methods.
- Understanding the steps in the machine learning pipeline, from data acquisition and feature generation, to training and model selection.
