Intro to Machine Learning with Python & Scikit-Learn 2-days workshop
Learn to use open source software like Python, Pandas, Numpy, Scikit-learn and Bokeh to build predictive models from a real-world data.

The workshop is meant to provide you with a solid base to build your machine learning skills. In particular you will learn to:

Recognize problems that can be solved with Machine Learning
Select the right technique (is it a classification problem? a regression? needs preprocessing?)
Load and manipulate data with Pandas
Visualize and explore data with Matplotlib and Bokeh
Build regression, classification and clustering models with Scikit-Learn
Evaluate model performance with Scikit-Learn
Build, train and serve a predictive model using Python, Flask and Heroku

The workshop is conceived to maximize the learning experience for everyone and includes 50% theory and 50% hands-on practice.

Is lunch provided
Yes! Lunch is included.

Are there any prerequisites?
Previous experience programming in Python or in other languages is advised to make best use of the workshop.

Why python?
In the last 2 years Python has become a de-facto standard in data science and is widely adopted by most major companies. Reasons for this success include:

large set of mature data science libraries => most needs covered
worldwide community of enthusiasts => get help when you need it
easy to learn, read and write => start contributing immediately
supports both functional and object oriented coding => versatile and powerful
full stack programming language => easier interaction between data scientists and software engineers

The course is lead by Francesco Mosconi. Ph.D. in Physics and Data Scientist at Catalit LLC, he was formerly co-founder and Chief Data Officer at Spire, a YC-backed company that invented the first consumer wearable device capable of continuously tracking respiration and physical activity. Machine Learning and python expert he also served as Data Science lead instructor at General Assembly and The Data incubator.
