July 5 - August 11, 2022
This is the second of two 40-hour workshops designed for people looking to break into the field of data science. If you would like to develop machine learning skills that can be applied to solve real-world problems, you will be very interested in this workshop. To take this second workshop, we recommend you take the first workshop, or already have some background with python.
Data Science has revolutionized decision-making in the information age. These days, government agencies, private companies, and research labs all need people with the skills to capture, visualize, and analyze data.
In Introduction to Data Science and Analytics in Python II, participants will be introduced to deep learning algorithms. Specific skills include learning when deep learning algorithms are likely to be most useful, how to build your own models, how to use models built by others, and how to work with image and text data. We will do all this using Python, one of the leading programming languages for data science, and Colaboratory, a cloud-based platform for machine learning.
Please note: Continuing education seats in this workshop are reserved and not an option for current U of L students who should register for classes using the Bridge.
